Hi-di-diddle-di-diddle-i,
hi-di-diddle-di-deeddle-i,
Hi-di-diddle-di-diddle-i,
hi-di-diddle-di-diddle all day.
Hi-di-diddle-di-diddle-i,
hi-di-diddle-di-deeddle-i,
Hi-di-diddle-di-diddle-i,
hi-di-diddle-di-diddle all day.
Hi-di-diddle-di-diddle-i,
hi-di-diddle-di-deeddle-i,
Hi-di-diddle-di-diddle-i,
hi-di-diddle-di-diddle all day.

I remember times not long ago
when outport life was nice and slow,
My uncle he would sometimes
sing a tune while he did work;
It had an upbeat tune you know
for he was always on the go,
His voice was clear and it
did ring hi-di-diddle-do-day.

Hi-di-diddle-di-diddle-i,
hi-di-diddle-di-deeddle-i,
Hi-di-diddle-di-diddle-i,
hi-di-diddle-di-diddle all day.
Hi-di-diddle-di-diddle-i,
hi-di-diddle-di-deeddle-i,
Hi-di-diddle-di-diddle-i,
hi-di-diddle-di-diddle all day.

He sometimes winked and laughed a bit,
and oh how I remember it,
His song brings back such memories
from somewhere long ago;
When I go back for visits now
I still remember how,
With shovel and pick he'd laugh
and sing hi-di-diddle-do-day.

Hi-di-diddle-di-diddle-i,
hi-di-diddle-di-deeddle-i,
Hi-di-diddle-di-diddle-i,
hi-di-diddle-di-diddle all day.
Hi-di-diddle-di-diddle-i,
hi-di-diddle-di-deeddle-i,
Hi-di-diddle-di-diddle-i,
hi-di-diddle-di-diddle all day.

So Freddie, here's a tune for you -
a man who's never been down or blue,
You left me something long ago
when you worked and sang your song;
I still remember afternoons
I tried to sing your crazy tune,
But I could never copy you
and your hi-di-diddle-do-day.

Hi-di-diddle-di-diddle-i,
hi-di-diddle-di-deeddle-i,
Hi-di-diddle-di-diddle-i,
hi-di-diddle-di-diddle all day.
Hi-di-diddle-di-diddle-i,
hi-di-diddle-di-deeddle-i,
Hi-di-diddle-di-diddle-i,
hi-di-diddle-di-diddle all day. [Fading....]
Hi-di-diddle-di-diddle-i,
hi-di-diddle-di-deeddle-i,
Hi-di-diddle-di-diddle-i,
hi-di-diddle-di-diddle all day.
