There is this old woman
She lives down the road
You can often find her
Kneeling inside of her hole
And I often ask her
"are you looking for the mother lode? "
Huh?
No.
No my child, this is not my desire
And then she said

I'm digging for fire [4x]

There is this old man
Who spent so much of his life sleeping
That he is able to keep awake for the rest of his years
He resides
On a beach
In a town
Where I am going to live
And I often ask him
"are you looking for the mother lode? "
Huh?
No.
No my child, this is not my desire
And then he said

I'm digging for fire [4x]
