I've been working on the railroad
All the live long day;
I've been working on the railroad
Just to pass the time away.
Don't you hear the whistle blowing?
Rise up so early in the morn.
Don't you hear the captain shout-ing "
Dinah, blow your horn!"
Dinah won't you blow, Dinah won't you blow,
Dinah won't you blow your horn?
Dinah won't you blow, Dinah won't you blow,
Dinah won't you blow your horn?
Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah,
Someone's ing the kitchen I know.
Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah,
Strumming on the old banjo.
Singing fee, fie, fid-dle-ee-i-o,
fee fie fid-dle-ee-i-o,
fee, fie, fid-dle-ee-i-o,
strumming on the old banjo.
