Ratcliffe The gold of CortÚs 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 ev'ry 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 English Settlers Dig and dig and dig and diggety ... Dig and dig and dig and diggety ... Wiggins Hey nonny nonny Ho nonny nonny Ratcliffe Oh, how I love it! Riches for Cheap! Wiggins There'll be heaps of it ... Ratcliffe 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 English Settlers Dig and dig and dig and diggety Dig and dig and dig and diggety-dig! Smith All of my life, I have searched for a land Like this one A wilder, more challenging country I couldn't desing 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! [Ratcliffe and English Settlers together] Ratcliffe Keep on working, lands Don't be shirking, lands Mine, boys, mind Mine me that gold Beautiful gold English Settlers Mine Find a mother lode Then find another load! Dig! Dig! and diggety Dig! Dig! for that gold All Make this island My land! Ratcliffe Make the mounds big, boys I'd help you to dig, boys But I've got this crick in me spine Smith This land we behold ... Ratcliffe This beauty untold ... Smith A man can be bold! It all can be sold! [Ratcliffe and English Settlers together] Ratcliffe And the gold Is ... Mine! Mine! Mine! Mine! English Settlers 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! Ratcliffe Dig and dig and diggety-dig! Hey nonny nonny nonny it's mine!
