THE HAPPY MINER
I 'M a happy miner, I love to sirig and dance. I wonder what my love would say If she could see my pants With canvas patches on my knees And one upon the stern ? I'll wear them when I'm digging here And home when I return.
Refrain:
So I get in a jovial way,
I spend my money free.
And I've got plenty!
Will you drink lager beer with me?
She writes about her poodle dog;
But never thinks to say,
" Oh, do come home, my honey dear,
I'm pining all away."
I'll write her half a letter,
Then give the ink a tip.
If that don't bring her to her milk
I'll coolly let her rip.
They wish to know if I can cook And what I have to eat,
