From the recording Vinny & Ant Ethel: Songs from Mrs. Alexander's Farm
Written by: Mark Brine
Chorus: IF ANTS COULD TALK This is what they’d say Look out, look out, look out!!! They’d run around screamin’ At the top of their lungs Look out, look out, look out!!!
Last night I dreamt I was interviewin’ This ant on a TV talk show It was so sad to watch him tell this awful sad story Of an incident not long ago It seems he had fathered over 3000 children Had a wife and an anthill home too Then he showed me a picture from an ant newspaper clippin’ Of them all stuck on the bottom of a shoe
Now I know this all might seem very petty But it ain’t so ridiculous ya know Just think if there was giants ‘N they were squishin’ us all up Why you’d be scared every place thatcha go You’d be waitin’ any minute to hear (squishing sound) It’s all over as flat as a pancake ‘n you’d be stepped on No, then you’d be grateful for me ‘N for whatever made me sing the words to this didactic ('di-did-I-cit' -intentionally mispronounced!) song©2003 Mark Brine Music (BMI)
