The Lyrics

Deep in coal mines,
Every day from dawn till nine
Black lung from breathin'
All a' that coal tar dust, so fine
They choke and cough up
More than they can dig up, it's sad to say
Life Ain't Sunny For Miners, Today..

Deadly dangers
When they're down in the mines
The chance of an explosion
From gas pockets, looms there all the time
Yet, it seems it's the only
Job that's open, where some
Can earn a living pay..
Life Ain't Sunny For Miners, Today..

Right now in Utah,
Six men are trapped underground
Crews are workin, searchin'..drillin' rescue holes on down
Hope they make it, and they can save them,
That's what we all must pray..
Life Ain't Sunny For Miners, Today

Life Ain't Sunny For Miners, Today

Not every parody has to be LOL funny. This was a touching and extraordinarily well-crafted tribute. 555.
