"Dig a Little Deeper" is song featured in Disney The Princess and the Frog. In the film it is sung by Mama Odie with a group of roseate spoonbills as the chorus. It is performed by Jenifer Lewis featuring the Pinnacle Gospel Choir and Anika Noni Rose.


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

Choir: (No we don't care)

Mama Odie:

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

Choir: (We had em' all in here)

Mama Odie:

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

You gotta dig a little deeper
Find out who you are
You gotta dig a little deeper
It really ain't that far

When you found out who you are
You find out what you need
Blue skies and sunshine
You gotta dig

Choir: (Dig)

Mama Odie: You gotta dig

Choir: (Dig)

Mama Odie:

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!

Money ain't got no soul
Money ain't got no heart
All you need is some self-control
Make yourself a brand new start

You gotta dig a little deeper
Don't have far to go
You gotta dig a little deeper
Tell the people Mama told you so

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

Miss Froggy?

Tiana: Ma'am.

Mama Odie: Might I have a word?

Tiana: Yes, ma'am.

Mama Odie:

You's a hard one, that's what I heard
Your daddy was a lovin' man
Family through and through
You your daddy's daughter
What he had in him you got in you

You gotta dig a little deeper
For you it's gonna be tough
You gotta dig a little deeper
You ain't dug far enough

Dig down deep inside yourself
You'll found out what you need
Blue skies and sunshine guaranteed
Open up the windows
Let in the light, children


(Blue skies and sunshine)
(Blue skies and sunshine)

Tiana: Blue skies and sunshine

Mama Odie: Guaranteed

Choir: (Ahhh...)
