“The World Owes Me a Living” by Anne Lloyd & the Sandpipers from The Grasshopper and the Ants

There once was an old grasshopper
Who could only think of fun
He looked on work as something too
Unpleasant to be done

He loved to sit in the summer sun
And fiddle all day long
While dozing there he played this air
And singed this little song

Oh the world owes me a living
Deedle dardle doodle deedle dum
Oh the world owes me a living
Deedle dardle doodle deedle dum

If I worked hard all day I might
Sleep better when in bed at night
I sleep all day so that’s alright
Deedle dardle doodle deedle dum

The north wind blew the leaves away
When winter came one stormy day
The snow fell fast upon the ground
No food nor shelter could be found

This old grasshopper sad and meek
Could hardly hop for he was weak
He slipped, He fell
Poor Chap, Farewell

Some ants safe in their hilly home
Looked out and saw him freezing
They brought him in and doctored him
He weakly started sneezing

They soaked his feet in mustard sauce
He grew better soon
Now every day they hear him play
And sing this little tune

Oh I owe the world a living
Deedle dardle doodle deedle dum
Oh I owe the world a living
Deedle dardle doodle deedle dum

I got a bad cold in my head
You ants were right the time you said
You’ve got to work if you collect
Deedle dardle doodle deedle
Deedle dardle doodle deedle
Deedle dardle doodle deedle dum
