Painstakingly as he constructs his own home,
An ant’s persistence is hard to believe
Seems that man’s forces cannot start to stop him
Crumb by crumb by crumb by crumb’ one at a time until he’s done.
He don’t know how to quit.
And in every day life we tend to give up
If the going gets a little too tough.
We could all stand a lesson from these little guys
Whom we always make pulp of beneath our feet.
We don’t post to quit.
