What do Lipton Tea, Frank Sinatra and Ants that move Rubbertree plants have in common?

I've known some pretty feisty 'Aunts'...Maybe that's what Frank meant.  Interesting lyrics.

Next time you're 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 you're 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 you're 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


I can't complain but sometimes I still do

This song was featured in the black and white movie Hole In The Head starring the Mafioso crooner himself the chairman of the board. The movie was from 1959 and I'm NOT going to go into the plot you can look it up. The song talks about beating the odds. One of my all time hate songs! And with that wimpy kids chorus. Generally I like Sinatra music  but dislike That's Life and especially this one. John Kennedy also used this for his campaign.
I approve this message.
