Lyrics

Mama Odie: Don't matter what you look like, don't matter what you wear.

How many rings you got on your finger-

We don't care, no-

Mama Odie & Chorus: We don't care!

Mama Odie: Don't matter where you come from, don't even matter what you are!

A dog, a pig, a cow, a goat;

Had em' all in here!

Chorus: Had got em' all in here!

Mama Odie: And they all knew what they wanted,

What they wanted me to do.

I told them what they needed, just like I be telling you!

Mama Odie & Chorus: You gotta dig a little deeper!

Mama Odie: Find out who you are!

Mama Odie & Chorus: You gotta dig a little deeper!

Mama Odie: It really ain't that far!

When you found out who you are, you find out what you need.

Mama Odie & Chorus: Blue skies and sun shine;

Guaranteed!

Mama Odie: You gotta dig!

Chorus: Dig!

Mama Odie: You gotta dig!

Chorus: Dig!

Mama Odie: Prince Froggy is a rich little boy

You wanna be rich again?

That ain't gonna make you happy now.

Did it make you happy then?

NO!

Mama Odie & Chorus: Money ain't got no soul!

Money ain't got no heart!

Mama Odie: All you need is some self-control.

Make yourself a brand new start!

Mama Odie & Chorus: You gotta dig a little deeper!

Mama Odie: Don't have far to go!

Mama Odie & Chorus: You gotta dig a little deeper!

Mama Odie: Tell the people Mama told you so!

Can't tell you what you'll find, maybe love or grant you a piece of mind.

Dig a little deeper and you'll know!

Miss Froggy, might I have a word?

Tiana: Ma'am

Mama Odie: Might I have a word?

Tiana: Yes, ma'am

Mama Odie: Heh heh heh, youse a hard one, that's what I heard.

Your daddy was a lovin man;

Family through and through.

You your daddy's daughter!

What he had in him, you got in you!

Mama Odie & Chorus: You gotta dig a little deeper!

Mama Odie: For you- it's gonna be tough.

Mama Odie & Chorus: You gotta dig a little deeper!

Mama Odie: You ain't dug this far enough!

Dig down deep inside yourself, you'll found out what you need.

Mama Odie & Chorus: Blue skies and sunshine;

Guaranteed!

Mama Odie: Open up the window, let in the light children!

Chorus: Blue skies and sunshine!

Chorus: Blue skies and sunshine!

Tiana: Blue skies and sunshine...!

Mama Odie: Guaran- teed...!
