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, 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!
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!
[Ratcliffe and English Settlers together] Ratcliffe: Keep on working, lands Don't be shirking, lads
Mine, boys, mine
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!
Ratcliffe: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!
