Chorus:

Digga tunnah,
Dig, digga tunnah.
When you're done, ya digga bigger tunnah.
Digga tunnah,
Dig, digga tunnah.
Quick before the hyena come.
Dig!
Dig a tunnah,
Dig, digga tunnah.
You could dig and never get done.
Dig a tunnah,
Dig, digga tunnah.
What was that?
Quick before the hyena come.
Dig!
Digga tunnah is what we do.
Life's a tunnah, we're diggin' through.
Digga tunnah is what we sing.
Digga tunnah is everything.
Mud and clay is a meerkat's friend,
Always more around every bend,
And when you get to your tunnah's end,
Shout hallelujah, let's dig again!
Dig!
Digga tunnah,
Dig, digga tunnah.
When you're done, ya digga bigger tunnah.
Digga tunnah,
Dig, digga tunnah.
What was that?
Quick before the hyena come.

Meerkat #6:

Dig!
