"I'm a Dwarf and I'm digging a hole, diggy diggy hole, I'm digging a hole!"

"Diggy Diggy Hole" is a song by Simon Lane (Honeydew) which was first sung in an episode of "Shadow of Israphel", Part 8: Diggy Diggy Hole. While assisting Verigan Antioch II and Skylord Lysander find Old Peculier's father's note around Ye Olde Watche Towere, Lewis decided they should sing a suitable song while they dig. Simon agreed and stated it should be "funny" and "light-hearted". 

Simon then improvised this now famous piece. Simon is still proud of his Dwarven singing charm, and has even used it during a meeting at Yogscast Headquarters.

In SoI episode 32, Simon discovers that "Diggy Diggy Hole" is banned in Stoneholm (which is ironic, as Stoneholm is the city of the dwarves). This is most likely because Israphel, through King Finbar, was trying to get rid of support for the Heroes. Or it could have been because the song had been playing non-stop for the past few days and the residents were becoming slightly irked. It was found to be replaced by "cat" which was immediately burned by Simon. The song also made an appearance in the game "Dwarfs!?".

Diggy Diggy Hole SongEdit

A new Diggy Diggy Hole song was released on 11th of July 2014 featuring new lyrics and animation as well as a live action video:

LyricsEdit

Brothers of the mine rejoice!
Swing, swing, swing with me
Raise your pick and raise your voice!
Sing, sing, sing with me
Down and down into the deep,
Who knows what we'll find beneath?
Diamonds, rubies, gold and more
Hidden in the mountain store.

Born underground, suckled from a teat of stone.
Raised in the dark, the safety of our mountain home.
Skin made of iron, steel in our bones,
To dig and dig makes us free!
Come on brothers sing with me!

[Chorus]
I am a dwarf and I'm digging a hole
Diggy diggy hole, diggy diggy hole
I am a dwarf and I'm digging a hole
Diggy diggy hole, digging a hole!

The sunlight will not reach this low
Deep, deep in the mine
Never seen the blue moon glow
Dwarves won't fly so high
Fill a glass and down some mead!
Stuff your bellies at the feast!
Stumble home and fall asleep
Dreaming in our mountain keep

Born underground, grown inside a rocky womb
The earth is our cradle; the mountain shall become our tomb
Face us on the battlefield; you will meet your doom
We do not fear what lies beneath
We can never dig too deep

[Chorus]

I am a dwarf and I'm digging a hole
Diggy diggy hole, diggy diggy hole
I am a dwarf and I'm digging a hole
Diggy diggy hole, digging a hole!

[Chorus]

I am a dwarf and I'm digging a hole
Diggy diggy hole, diggy diggy hole
I am a dwarf and I'm digging a hole
Diggy diggy hole, digging a hole!

(Instrumental)

Born underground, suckled from a teat of stone
Raised in the dark, the safety of our mountain home
Skin made of iron, steel in our bones
To dig and dig makes us free
Come on brothers sing with me!

[Chorus]

I am a dwarf and I'm digging a hole
Diggy diggy hole, diggy diggy hole
I am a dwarf and I'm digging a hole
Diggy diggy hole, digging a hole!

[Chorus]

I am a dwarf and I'm digging a hole
Diggy diggy hole, diggy diggy hole
I am a dwarf and I'm digging a hole
Diggy diggy hole, digging a hole!
