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!
