: Does anyone know phrase "sit in coalmine"? It is a part of lyrics in one song, and I just wanted to know if it has a meaning, because it doesn't make sense otherwise. It might also be some slangy expression.

often song lyrics are unclear - indeed there is a whole internet site devoted to misheard lyrics at kissthisguy.com (I recall).
If you tell us the song or more of the surrounding words, we can then clear it up for you.

(I do know of an old song "working in a coal mine" by Lee Dorsey, I think)
