lyrics

Don't blame the ants in your honey
Don't blame the bees in your cheese
Don't blame the fly for bein in your pie
We're all just tryin' to get by

We're all pieces of the bigger picture
We are petals on the flower of life
Each one has its place, each one gives life a new taste
We're the sugar, we're the salt, we're the spice

Don't blame the ants in your honey
Don't blame the bees in your cheese
Don't blame the fly for bein in your pie
We're all just tryin' to get by

Yes its true that little bird may wear bright colors
Yes its true that little bird may wear all black
Yes its true that bird is blue but its no different than you
So go ahead and take a big step back

Cuz from outer space we all just look like ants
but to ants we may look like Gi-ants so...

Don't blame the ants in your honey
Don't blame the bees in your cheese
Don't blame the fly for bein in your pie
We're all just tryin' to get by
say we're all just tryin' to get by
yea we're all just tryin', to get by
