Mine, Mine, Mine

[Ratclife]
The gold of Cortes
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
Hey nonny nonny

[Ratclife]
Oh, how I love it!
Riches for cheap

[Wiggins]
There'll be heaps of it...

[Ratclife]
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, mine
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!

[John Smith]
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!

[Ratclife and English Settlers]

Keep on working, lads
Don't be shirking, lads
Mine, boys, mine
Mine me that gold
Beautiful gold
Mine
Find a mother lode
Then find another load!
Dig! Dig! and diggety
Dig! Dig! for that gold

[All]
Make this land
My land !

[Ratclife]
Make the mounds big, boys
I'd help you to dig, boys
But I've got this crick in me spine

[John Smith]
This land we behold...

[Ratclife]
This beauty untold...

[John Smith]
A man can be bold!
It all can be sold!

[Ratclife and English Settlers]

And the gold
Is...

Mine!
Mine!
Mine!
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 dig and diggety-dig!
Hey nonny nonny it's mine!
