lyrics

When cities of ants look for love, it’s love they’re bound to find
When cities of love look for ants, they’ve got a different axe to grind

When ants are crawling speedy on a public picnic table
Or gather on the pavement in the shape of old Clark Gable
They’re looking for something they’ve been unable to find
In the astroturf we’ve laid for them, they’ve got a better axe to grind

When ants travel deep ant channels and turn our sidewalks into highways
And when we step over sideways, turning highways into byways
I think we’ll find in orange rinds these ants are better than kind
I think we’ve found our findings still, we’ve got a better axe to grind

When ants gather, closing in on our sunny picnic lunch
Will they save the deviled eggs and lemonade for tomorrow’s brunch
And will they wonder, wandering about in a turkey sandwich maze
What exactly caused their tryptophan-induced haze
Do you think this is exactly what they had in mind
Maybe they perhaps have a different axe to grind

Are you happy, little ant?
Do you have a forty-hour work week?
Do you do anything for fun?
These are the things I want to know
These are the things that come to me slowly
These are the things have been unanswered, wholly, by holy men of yore

Ants build ant cities under sidewalks with entrances in sidewalk cracks
They pile dust in little piles and little stones in little stacks
We’d love to go and visit to see the rooms that they have designed
But, my dears, I fear we’ve got a different axe to grind

When ants romance each other do they profess their love on tire swings
And do they feel their own hearts flutter in like painted fairy wings
Does an ant give gifts of anty love to her anty mate
Like daisy pollen or rose petals found nearby a garden gate
Would anty lovers eat chocolate cake with chocolate icing or cake of another kind
There’s just no telling, perhaps they’ve got a different axe to grind

Are you happy, little ant?
Do you have a forty-hour work week?
Do you do anything for fun?
These are the things I want to know
These are the things that come to me slowly
These are the things have been unanswered, wholly, by holy men of yore

When ants are climbing blades of grass or taller, ten-foot trees
Does the wind blow them away, are they floored by the scent of breezy peonies
Do they admire yellow daffodils or the cobblestone walkways they’ve designed
There’s just no telling, perhaps they’ve got a different axe to grind
