Lyrics

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 blowin',
Rise up so early in the morn.
Can't you hear the captain shouting,
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 in the kitchen I know oh-oh-oh,
Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah.
Strumming on the old banjo,
Fee fi fiddle e i o,
Fee fi fiddle e i o-o-o-o,
Fee fi fiddle e i o.
Strumming on the old banjo,
Don't you hear the whistle blowin'.
Rise up so early in the morn,
Can't you hear the captain shouting,
Dinah blow your horn.

Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah,
Someone's in the kitchen I know oh-oh-oh,
Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah.
Strumming on the old banjo,
Fee fi fiddle e i o,
Fee fi fiddle e i o-o-o-o,
Fee fi fiddle e i o.
Strumming on the old banjo,
Strumming on the old banjo,
Strumming on the old banjo...!
