Verse:
BmBm chord                               
I like digging holes and hiding things inside them
When I'll grow old I hope I won't forget to find them

Then pack it up in boxes, head for the next town running

AA chord thousand times

Verse:
BmBm chord

Ask me where I come from, I'll say a different land

BmBm chord
I can't get the numbers, and play the guessing name

It's just the place that changes, the rest is still the same
