Mine Mine Mine

Menken Alan

The gold of Cortas
The jewels of Pizarro
Will seem like mere trinkets
By this time tomorrow

The gold we find here
Will dwarf them by far
Oh, with all ya got in ya, boys
Dig up Virginia, boys

Mine, boys, mine every mountain
And dig, boys, dig 'til ya drop
Grab a pick, boys
Quick, boys

Shove in a shovel
Uncover those lovely
Pebbles that sparkle and shine
It's gold and it's mine, mine, mine

Dig and dig and dig and diggety
Dig and dig and dig and diggety

Hey, nonny nonny
Ho, nonny nonny
Oh, how I love it

Hey, nonny nonny
Ho, nonny nonny
Riches for cheap

Hey, nonny nonny
Ho, nonny nonny
There'll be heaps of it
And I'll be on top of the heap

My rivals back home
It's not that I'm bitter
But think how they'll squirm
When they see how I glitter!

The ladies at court
Will be all a-twitter
The king will reward me
He'll knight me, no, lord me!

It's mine, mine, mind
For the taking
It's mine, boys
Mine me that gold!
With those nuggets dug

It's glory they'll gimme
My dear friend, King Jimmy
Will probably build me a shrine
When all of the gold is mine

Dig and dig and dig and diggety
Dig and dig and dig and diggety-dig!

All of my life, I have searched
For a land like this one
A wilder, more challenging country
I couldn't design

Hundreds of dangers await
And I don't plan to miss one
In a land I can claim, a land I can tame
The greatest adventure is mine!

Keep on working, lands
Don't be shirking, lands
Mine, boys, mind
Mine me that gold
Beautiful gold

Make this island, my land
Make the mounds big, boys
I'd help you to dig, boys
But I've got this crick in me spine

This land we behold
This beauty untold
A man can be bold!
It all can be sold!

So go for the gold
We know which is here
All the riches here
From this minute
This land and what's in it is mine!

Dig and dig and diggety-dig!
Hey, nonny, nonny, nonny, it's mine!
