Lyrics Edit

[Verse 1]

Waking up in the morning to go mine in the caves,

My boss has me working like I am a slave.

I haven't found diamonds in a week,

And he's thinking of firing me,

So I just don't know what to do.

I grab my pickaxe and my iron sword,

Cause outside my door there's a zombie hoard.

I wish that I had a family,

Or some sort of people to support me,

I do the same thing every day.


I've been mining all day,

Got fired from work,

They took down my home that was made out of birch.

I have nowhere to live,

These creepers ruin my life,

Looks like I'm homeless until the day I die.

Notch has cursed me!

What have I done?

I have nowhere to live and nowhere to run. 

The zombies slayed me, the zombies slayed me.

[Verse 2]

I don't have a good life or a house,

I'm living dirtier than a mouse,

What did I do to the people around me?

[Repeat Chorus]


Sometimes I wake up in the middle of a very scary night,

I look around and the zombies beat me- hey, they scratch and bite,

I hate my life! (yeah yeah yeah)

So where were those diamonds down in the caves?

I simply couldn't find them, I kicked my pickaxe in rage.

[Repeat Chorus]

The zombies slayed me,

Why me?

The zombies slayed me,

Hey, I hate my life,

The zombies slayed me.
