High Hopes

Writer(s): Sammy Cahn/ Jimmy Van Heusen/ arr. Nelson Riddle

Next time your found, with your chin on the ground
There a lot to be learned, so look around
Just what makes that little old ant, think he’ll move that rubber tree plant
Anyone knows an ant, can’t, move a rubber tree plant
But he’s got high hopes, he’s got high hopes
He’s got high apple pie, in the sky hopes
So any time your gettin’ low, ‘stead of lettin’ go
Just remember that ant. Oops there goes another rubber tree plant

When troubles call, and your back’s to the wall
There a lot to be learned, that wall could fall
Once there was a silly old ram, thought he’d punch a hole in a dam
No one could make that ram, scram, he kept buttin’ that dam
‘Cause he had high hopes, he had high hopes
He had high apple pie, in the sky hopes
So any time your feelin’ bad, ‘stead of feelin’ sad
Just remember that ram. Oops there goes a billion kilowatt dam

All problems just a toy balloon, they’ll be bursted soon
They’re just bound to go pop. Oops there goes another problem kerplop
