Ratcliffe: [singing] The gold of Cortez, 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 till ya drop! Grab a pick, boys. Quick, boys. Shove in a shovel, uncover those loverly pebbles that sparkle and shine. It's gold- and it's mine, mine, mine!

Prospectors: [singing] Dig, and dig, and diggety dig. And dig, and dig, and diggety dig.

Wiggins: [singing] Hei nonny nonny hei nonny nonny.

Ratcliffe: [singing] Oh, how I love it!

Wiggins: [singing] Hei nonny nonny, hei nonny nonny.

Ratcliffe: [singing] Riches for cheap!

Wiggins: [singing] hei nonny nonny, ho nonny nonny.

Ratcliffe and wiggins: [singing] There'll be heaps of it!

Ratcliffe: [singing] And I'll be on top of the heeeeeeeeeeeap!

Prospectors: [singing] Diggety diggety diiiiiiiig!

Ratcliffe: [singing] 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 give me. My dear friend King Jimmy will probably build me a shrine.

Prospectors: [singing] Dig, and dig, and diggety dig. And dig and dig, and DIGGETY-

Ratcliffe: [singing] Keep on working lads, don't be shirking lads! Mine, boys, mine! Mine me that goooooooooooold!

Prospectors: [singing] Dig and dig, and diggety-

Ratcliffe: [singing] Beautiful goooold!

Prospectors: [singing] And dig for that gold-

Ratcliffe: [singing] Make this island MY land! Make the mounds big, boys. I'd help you to dig, boys, but I've got this crick in me spine.

John Smith: [singing] This land we behooooooooold-

Ratcliffe: [singing] This beauty untoooooold-

John Smith: [singing] A man can be booooooold-

Ratcliffe: [singing] It all can be SOOOOLD!
