lyrics

Verse: (stop time)

The grasshopper said to the ant,
"Why don't you just relax?"
The ant said to the grasshopper,
"I'll tell you the true facts:
That there'll be

CHORUS: (swinging)

Seven years of fat, then seven years of lean.
These cycles come and go, from everything I've seen.
You might spend your dough in the times of plenty --
Put some by, or you won't have a penny
when your time is done
and it's seven years of lean."

The Pharoah said to Joseph,
"Well, I don't know what to do."
Joseph said to the Pharoah,
"I've got some good and bad news for you:
'Cause there'll be

[CHORUS]

The banker said to the farmer,
"What goes up will never come down."
The farmer said, "The time will come
when you'll look like a clown. 'Cause there'll be

[CHORUS]
