Dig a Little Deeper


Lyrics from The Princess and the Frog
Written by Randy Newman
Performed by Jenifer Lewis, featuring the Pinnacle Gospel Choir, with Anika Noni Rose

Mama Odie

[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 we don't care)

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
(We had 'em all in here)

And they all knew what they wanted
What they wanted me to do
I told 'em what they needed
Just like I be telling you

[Chorus:] You got to dig a little deeper
[Mama Odie:] Find out who you are
[Chorus:] You got to dig a little deeper
[Mama Odie:] It really ain't that far

When you find out who you are
You'll find out what you need
[Chorus:] Blue skies and sunshine guaranteed
[Mama Odie:] You got to dig (dig)
You got to dig (dig)

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!
[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

[Chorus:] You got to dig a little deeper
[Mama Odie:] Don't have far to go
[Chorus:] You got to dig a little deeper
[Mama Odie:] Tell the people Mama told you so

Can't tell you what you'll find
Maybe love will grant you peace of mind
Dig a little deeper, and you'll know

Miss Froggy, might I have a word?
You's a hard one, that's what I heard
Your daddy was a loving man
Family through and through
You your daddy's daughter
What he had in him you got in you

[Chorus:] You got to dig a little deeper
[Mama Odie:] For you, it's gonna be tough
[Chorus:] You got to dig a little deeper
[Mama Odie:] You ain't dug near far enough

Dig down deep inside yourself
You'll find out what you need
[Chorus:] Blue skies and sunshine guaranteed
[Mama Odie:] Open up the windows
Let in the light, children
[Chorus:] Blue skies and sunshine
Blue skies and sunshine
[Tiana:] Blue skies and sunshine
[Mama Odie:] Guaranteed
