Part 1
I've been workin' on the railroad, All the livelong day.
I've been workin' on the railroad, Just to pass the time away.
Don't you hear the whistle blowing? Rise up so early in the morn!
Don't you hear the captain shouting: "Dinah, blow your horn?"
 
Part 2
Dinah, won't you blow Dinah, won't you blow Dinah, won't you blow your horn, your horn?
Dinah, won't you blow Dinah, won't you blow Dinah, won't you blow your horn?
 
Part 3
Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah, Someone's in the kitchen, I know.
Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah, Strumming on the old banjo.
 
Part 4
Fee fi, fid-dle-dee-i-o, Fee fi fid-dle-dee-i-o.
Fee fi fid-dle-dee-i-o, Strummin' on the old banjo.
