[Verse 1]

Got my helmet on my head,

Figure out what that zambi said. (what?)

Lava all over the room,

Got a half-heart left, man, I am doomed!

Don't have any iron bars,

My pick just broke into some shards,

Scary noise- what should I do?

Go left or right, I'll have to choose.


Visions of last time flash inside my mind,

I'm scared, oh well.

And I'm pretty sure there's a big creeper right there. (dang!)


Don't mine at night!

I know you're looking at that cave,

And you're feeling kind of brave,

Go to bed, you'll be alright.

Don't mine at night!

There's nothing that is gonna change

If you just wait until the day,

Zombies wanna eat your brains.

Don't mine at night!

I know it's me you're gonna thank,

Make a bed, it's not too late,

3 wool and 3 wooden planks.

Don't mine at night!

How many times I have to say,

Drop the pick and walk away-ay, woah,

Don't mine at night! (don't mine at night)

Don't mine at night! (don't mine at night)

[Verse 2]

Stomach's all tied up in knots,

This labyrinth, I'm getting lost.

This is really getting old,

Found like 2 pieces of coal.

Down one way there's just stone,

Monsters won't leave me alone.

Down another there's some lava,

And of course I get pwnd.

[Pre-Chorus 2]

Remember the last time I tried to mine at night,

I failed, so bad.

I lost all my stuff, it was really tough,

That's it! (RAGE QUIT!)

[Repeat Chorus] 4x



Don't mine at night!



Don't mine at night!

[Repeat Chorus last time]
