lyrics

Dig, dig, dig, dig
Dig, dig, dig, dig
Dig, dig, dig, dig
Dig, dig, dig, dig

Listen here, my boy, and I will tell a tale
of men who dig inside the walls
and haunt you 'til you hide to no avail

Ya da da da da di di
High ho
Ya da da da da di di
It's off to work we go

Dig, dig, dig, dig
Dig, dig, dig, dig
Dig, dig, dig, dig
Dig, dig, dig, dig

You'll hear them when you're in your room
when no one's 'round
They raise up quite a din, you see
and you can't help but hear their awful sound

Ya da da da da di di
High ho
Ya da da da da di di
It's off to work we go

Dig, dig, dig, dig
Dig, dig, dig, dig
Dig, dig, dig, dig
Dig, dig, dig, dig

These men dig just for you,
see, no one else can hear
The devil's digging in the walls
They're raising Cain and bringing on the fear

Ya da da da da di di
High ho
Ya da da da da di di
It's off to work we go

Dig, dig, dig, dig
Dig, dig, dig, dig
Dig, dig, dig, dig
Dig, dig, dig, dig

And so, you see, you must behave
and take your pills
or little men will come for you
with picks and axes better for the kill

Ya da da da da di di
High ho
Ya da da da da di di
It's off to work we go

The Twelve Canons Marion, Iowa

The Twelve Canons were formed sometime in 2001 or 2002 in Des Moines, Iowa by singer/guitarist Jim DuRocher. After three albums with members Sam Gold and Alex Body, the Twelve Canons stripped back to a two-piece with the addition of multi-instrumentalist Justin Norman. The music combines folk, pop, and unbridled horror into one bitter, but ultimately rewarding package. ... more
