Music For Muddling Through

 

This song won the Academy Award in 1959; it was used in JFK's bid for the White House in 1960.

High Hopes

Next time you’re found
With your chin on the ground,
There’s a lot to be learned, so look around.

Just think what makes that little ol’ ant
Think he’ll move a 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 anytime you’re gettin’ low,
‘Stead of lettin’ go, just remember that ant.
Oops! There goes another rubber tree
Oops! There goes another rubber tree
Oops! There goes another rubber tree plant.
Verse 2: When troubles call, and your back’s to the wall,
There’s a lot to be learned, that wall could fall.
Refrain 2: Once there was a silly ol’ ram,
Thought he’d punch a hole in a dam.
No one could make that ram scram,
He kept a buttin’ that dam.
Cause he had high hopes, he had high hopes,
He had high apple–pie–in–the–sky hopes.
So anytime you’re feelin’ bad,
‘Stead of feelin’ sad, just remember that ram.
Oops! There goes a billion kilowatt
Oops! There goes a billion kilowatt
Oops! There goes a billion kilowatt dam.
[Repeat from the bridge:]
So keep your high hopes, keep your high hopes,
Keep your high apple–pie–in–the–sky hopes.
A problem’s just a toy balloon,
They’ll be burstin’ soon,
They’re just bound to go “Pop!”
Oops! There goes another problem ker-
Oops! There goes another problem ker-
Oops! There goes another problem ker-
Plop! Ker–plop!
