  1. Demo version.
    All instruments played by Andy Partridge and recorded in his garden shed.
    Released in November 1994 on the Andy Partridge: A Hello Selection EP.
    Also available on Fuzzy Warbles Volume Seven in the U.K.

    Andy: “In January 1992 I started this demo on an 8 track cassette machine because I needed some fun. I got it into my Bazooka Joe of a head that XTC ought to make a Bubblegum album. All moronic chugging choons with vocalists who sound like Cartman and single entendre lyrics. The next three tracks you've blundered into here are all that remain of the original gum demos. Get chewing.”

Lyrics

Dig, dig down...
Dig, dig down...

(Chorus)
Candymine, candymine, tunnelling to honey for a girl so fine
Candymine, candymine, tunnelling to honey for a girl so fine

Wake up every morning when the clock strikes six
Pick up my girlfriend and we pick up sticks
Digging for her sweet love and I can't waste time
Working down that candymine

(Chorus)

Finish every evening when the clock strikes five
Home to my queen bee in our private hive
Digging for her sweet love and I can't waste time
Working down that candymine

(Chorus)

Dig, dig, down...

(Spoken)
We've got to get the candy out of the candy mine!
Let's get working!

(Chorus x 4)
