    [Verse 1]
    An admin once told me
    That I could mine some diamonds
    I have the sharpest tool in my chest
    He was looking at me funny
    Because I didn’t have any diamonds
    So I’m gonna go to a mineshaft

    [Pre-Chorus]
    So I didn’t stop mining and I didn’t stop mining
    Not gonna stop ’til I get some diamonds
    Got a crafting table and a bed
    You take your sword but then it gets rough
    Some much to mine, so much to sight
    So what’s wrong if I mine for days?
    You’ll never mine if you don’t go
    You’ll never find any emerald

    [Chorus]
    Hey now, I’m a miner
    Get my armour on, mine!
    Hey now, smelting all ores
    Gonna keep going, get iron!
    All I want is diamonds
    Only mining ores
    Break the cobblestone

    [Verse 2]
    It’s a deep place, but I’m gonna go deeper
    Not gonna stop ’til I get some diamonds
    Any new ore begins to differ
    Judging by the mine that I have been mining in
    He said he would just give me some more
    But that wouldn’t be the same as getting them myself
    “What, with diamond ores?”
    “That’s the way I like getting them I’ll never get bored”

    [Chorus]
    Hey now, I’m a miner
    Get my armour on, mine!
    Hey now, smelting all ores
    Gonna keep going, get iron!
    All I want is diamonds
    Only mining ores
    Break the cobblestone

    [Spoken over Instrumental]
    Yeah, thanks for this song

    [Chorus]
    Hey now, I’m a miner
    Get my armour on, mine!
    Hey now, smelting all ores
    Gonna keep going, get iron!
    All I want is diamonds
    Only mining ores
    Break the cobblestone
