The Lyrics

I’m going to delve into
That metal mine.
It’s copper that I’ll cop—a slew. . .
It ain’t diamonds
With all their shinin’.

You know, I’m a bandit
Rooting underground.
I have got a scam; it
Is to hand it to recycling clowns.

I’m going to delve into
That metal mine. . ,
Not mine.

I love to
Go into
A big “trou”
(“Hole” to you)
In the ground
And grab a share
Of nuggets shiny—
At least ten pounds. . .
I steal it!

And then I sell it to
Some “friends” of mine.

No "miner" work fact, it "dwarfs" the competition! ;D

Or, of course, my funny bone is getting numb and this is actually about metal thieves! ;D

Congrats, JAB! You just delved 555 sets of metal, gems, coals for this one!

Thanks, OMR, Christie. Screamin' Jay has put his spell on me, and I can't stop myself.

Hits home - I was raised in a coal mining town but I didn't have to steal any because I always got more than my fair share at Christmas. I think this OS has you spellbound JB. How many of these now? Way too many for me to try to count on your parody list page for sure. I'm way more familiar with the OS done by CCR. That screamin' Jay guy is way too scary for me. Well polished piece - no diamond in the rough going on here.
