Digger O'Dell is the friendly undertaker.
Digger: I knew this was the right house.
Digger: It is I, Digby O'Dell, the friendly undertaker.
Digger: I was passing by, and I saw the candle burning, so naturally I rushed right in.
Digger: It can happen to anyone, believe me, short circuits no doubt. Riley: Sidney, you remember Digger O'Dell from Brooklyn?
Digger: Greetings Sidney, you're looking fine, very natural.
Digger: I'd be glad to help if you care to go into it deeper.
Digger, can I see you a minute? Digger: Excuse me, all. Riley: Digger, what am I going to do?
Digger: Can I help?
Digger: Eureka, I have it. Take them to a fine restaurant. Splurge on a luxurious dinner.
Riley: Oh, ain't that a fine boy I got, Digger?
Digger: In that case, you won't need me.
Digger: You may not like flowers at first, but eventually they'll grow on you.

I am interested in finding the words to a song or poem about Digger O'Dell, the friendly undertaker in the first version of the Life of Riley (1949-1950). (Posted Oct. 25, 2002)

Digger O'Dell, the local undertaker will also be present to add a few "dead" jokes... which were wildly popular with the listening audience.  The Life of Riley still makes us laugh today because many of the situations he finds himself in, still happen to us. Yes, it is "a revoltin' development!"
