There is this old woman 
She lives down the road 
You can often find her 
Kneeling inside of her hole 
And I often ask her 
"Are you looking for the mother lode?" 
Huh? 
No. 
No my child, this is not my desire 
And then she said 

I'm digging for fire 
I'm digging for fire 
I'm digging for fire 
I'm digging for fire 

There is this old man 
Who spent so much of his life sleeping 
That he is able to keep awake for the rest of his years 
He resides 
On a beach 
In a town 
Where I am going to live 
And I often ask him 
"Are you looking for the mother lode?" 
Huh? 
No. 
No my child, this is not my desire 
And then he said 
I'm digging for fire 
I'm digging for fire 
I'm digging for fire 
I'm digging for fire
