Lyrics

well we dig dig dig
well we dig in our mine
the whole day through
dig dig dig
that is what we like to do
it ain't no trick
to get rich quick
if you dig dig dig
with a shovel and a pick
dig dig dig
the whole day through
got to dig dig dig
it's what we like to do
in our mine
in our mine
where a million diamonds shine
we got to dig dig dig
from the morning till the night
dig dig dig
up everything in sight
we got to dig dig dig
in our mine
in our mine
dig up diamonds by the score
a thousand rubies sometimes more
but we don't know what we are digging for

heigh ho
heigh ho
it's off to work we go
We keep on singing all day long
heigh ho

heigh-ho
heigh-ho
got to make your troubles go
well you keep on singing all day long
heigh ho

heigh-ho
heigh-ho
