lyrics

I've been working with a pick and spade all day in the sun and the rain without a roof or shade
I asked my shift boss "How long's this trench?"
He said "Keep digging that trench until you reach the end, then turn around and fill it in again."
I asked my shift boss "How deep is this trench?"
He told me "It's as deep as the mountain is high so just keep digging until you lay down and die."
I got to dig one more trench: I'm gonna dig me a trench in the shift boss's head
And that is gonna be a better day. We can ride on the glory train when we lay down our pick and spade.
