Cheese roll excavation text and video (free earworm)

Here's the magic spell lyrics to excavate the Hunter's cellar to get the secret arcane formula for the legendary cheese roll:

Brothers of the mine rejoice!
Swing, swing, swing with me
Raise your pick and raise your voice!
Sing, sing, sing with me
Down and down into the deep
Who knows what we'll find beneath?
Diamonds, rubies, gold and more
Hidden in the mountain store
Born underground, suckled from a teat of stone
Raised in the dark, the safety of our mountain home
Skin made of iron, steel in our bones
To dig and dig makes us free
Come on brothers sing with me!
I am a dwarf and I'm digging a hole
Diggy diggy hole, diggy diggy hole
I am a dwarf and I'm digging a hole
Diggy diggy hole, digging a hole
The sunlight will not reach this low
Deep, deep in the mine
Never seen the blue moon glow
Dwarves won't fly so high
Fill a glass and down some mead!
Stuff your bellies at the feast!
Stumble…

Would be rude not to attach a video to explain the lyrics that everyone has seen lots ... (I'm so banned!)  But if there's a cheese roll at the end of it...

That would be the crusty white roll with strong cheddar and fiery onions that cost 9d in about 1969. Two of these formed part of my regular half crown lunch in the Hunters. The two rolls came to 1/3d, the rest was cider. At that time the Hunters offered a choice of three ciders - sweet, dry, and from the barrel in the yard. The latter was cheapest, at 6d a pint, so you could have two pints for a shilling (12d). Two rolls and two pints made a very satifying lunch and cost 1/3d + 1/-  = 2/6d, half a crown. In new money half a crown is 12½p. Those were the days!
