[Verse 1]

Got my helmet on my head

Figure out what that zombie 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

[Pre-Chorus 1]

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


Don't mine at night

I know you're lookin' at that cave

And you're feelin' kinda' 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

Three wool and three wooden planks

Don't mine at night

How many times I have to say

Drop the pick and walk away-a, 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 gettin' lost

This is really getting old

Found like two 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 pwned!

[Pre-Chorus 2]

Remember 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]






[Repeat Chorus]
