The ant knows about co-operation
The ant can't do anything alone.
He can't live his life in isolation.
Solitary, underneath a stone.
The ant knows we need to help each other,
The ant's only tiny but he's wise.
He knows he must walk beside his brother,
If he wants to win that very special prize.
The ant hill is something quite enormous,
Each ant building just a little part.
Those same ants are trying to inform us
That we need co-operation from the start.
The ant isn't ever self-sufficient,
The ant never thinks he's number one,
He knows on his own he's not proficient
And he knows one little ant can't get things done.
The ant knows he can't work as a single
The burdens would be much too much to bear.
He knows he and his fellow ants must mingle.
Every ant must pull his weight and do his share.
An ant's such a very little creature,
And we to him are an enormous size,
But the ant can be our most important teacher;
Co-operation's bound to win the prize.
