There I was, a-digging this hole
A hole in the ground, so big and sort of round it was
There was I, digging it deep
It was flat at at the bottom and the sides were steep
When along, comes this bloke in a bowler which he lifted and scratched his head
Well we looked down the hole, poor demented soul and he said Do you mind if I make a suggestion? Don’t dig there, dig it elsewhere
Your digging it round and it ought to be square
The shape of it’s wrong, it’s much too long
‘The Hole in the Ground’ was a comic song which was written by Myles Rudge and composed by Ted Dicks. Recorded by Bernard Cribbins and released by EMI on the Parlophone label in 1962.
