The Lyrics

A BIONICLE parody (Yes, I know that theme is discontinued) of some Onu-Matoran (People of Earth) met, and sung from the perspective of Takua the Chronicler in the Mata Nui Online Game.
Going deep in a tunnel pathway,
Heading down to depths of Mata Nui.
I met a Matoran, his name: Onepu.
He was a-staying with his Ussals.
And he said,

Oh I live in the caves down under,
Where miners work and mine boulders.
Watch out for, watch out for dark thunder.
For if you see Makuta, take cover!

Helping out a miner named Taipu.
He was digging a tunnel to the jungle.
When I fixed a flow, he was mining.
Then outside came a very bright shine of a light!
And he said,

I'm done with the caves down under.
I wanna see the trees' up there.
But then he got kidnapped by buzzers.
Oh whoops he, forgot to take cover, yeah.

Then I met Elder Whenua.
He wore a Ruru, and not a Huna.
I asked him, "Can Taipu join my company?"
He said, "Sure, go to the mines of plenty."
And I went,

All the way to the mines down under,
Where guys worked lower and upper.
Mining all, mining all the boulders.
I better search for miner Taipu.
And he is,

Mining in the mine down under.
He's chopping on a round gutter.
Watch out for, watch out for dark thunder.
Let's be a team all together.

Mining in the mine down under.
He's chopping on a round gutter.
Watch out for, watch out for dark thunder.
Let's be a team all together.

Mining in the mine down under.
He's chopping on a round gutter.
Watch out for, watch out for dark thunder.
Let's be a team all together.
I know Whenua is a Turaga, but it couldn't fit.
