Diggin’ It

Have you heard the latest sound?
That tune that’s goin’ ‘round?
I’m diggin’ it! I’m diggin’ it!

Have you been out to the show?
Do you know the way to go?
I’m diggin’ it! I’m diggin’ it!

Ain’t this a crazy scene?
Like nowhere else you’ve been?
I’m diggin’ it! I’m diggin’ it!

Have you tried ecstasy?
Would you like two or three?
I’m diggin’ it! I’m diggin’ it!

Was it you we tried to save?
Did you find an early grave?
I’m diggin’ it! I’m diggin’ it!

  1. I really like this. I could sing it while I'm in my garden digging up those pesky weeds. Tee-Hee. Blessings!

  9. "was it you we tried to save"? your poem says a lot more than meets the eye...after reading it over several times "i'm gettin' it'"....very nice rhythm and meaningful message behind the beats...great write...

  10. Digging that reversal at the end. Great punchline-type finale that's unexpected and meaningful.

  13. Oh, I almost lost control on the sharp turn at the end. Can you sing that for us? seriously though...the truth and consequences do take a very sharp turn at times.
