When You and I Were Young, Maggie (MIning Parody)

DESCRIPTION: "I wandered today up The Hill, Maggie, I applied for a rustling card... But the job it was too damned hard." The singer works in a mine full of gas; he is hit by rock, his hair is turning green; he suspects "you'll soon want your maiden name back."
