[When problems overwhelm us 
and sadness smothers us, 
where do we find the will 
and the courage 
to countinue? 

well the answer may come 
in the caring voice of a friend 
a chance encounter with a book 
or from a personal faith. 

for janet, help came from her faith 
but it also came from a squirrel. 

shortly after her divorce 
janet lost her father 
then she lost her job 
she had mounting money problems 
but janet not only survived 
she worked her way out of 
dispondency 
and now she says 
life is good again. 

how could this happen?
she told me that late 
one autumn day 
when she was at her lowest, 
she watched a squirrel 
storing up nuts for the winter 
one at a time 

he would take them to the nest 
and she thought if that squirrel 
can take care of himself 
with the harsh winter coming on so can i. 

once i broke my problems into small pieces 
i was able to carry them, 
just like those acorns, 
one at a time]

Take all your problems 
and rip 'em apart

Carry them off
in a shopping cart
and another thing you
should've known  from
thestart
the problems in
hand
are light than at heart

be like the squirrel, girl
be like the squirrel
give it a whirl, girl
be like the squirrel

and another thing 
have to know 
in this world 
cut up your hair
straighten
your curls

well, your problems 
hide in your curls
