THE ANT by Oliver Herford

My child, ob-serve the use-ful Ant,
How hard she works each day;
She works as hard as ad-a-mant
(That's very hard, they say).
She has no time to gal-li-vant;
She has no time to play.
Let Fi-do chase hi tail all day;
Let Kit-ty play at tag;
She has no time to throw away,
She has no tail to wag;
She hur-ries round from morn till night;
She nev-er, nev-er sleeps;
She seiz-es ev-er-y thing in sight,
She drags it home with all her might,
And all she takes she keeps
