The underscore (low line) U+005F is TeX's usual marker to introduce a
subscript, and is only permitted in math mode; that's why it is
complaining of a missing $ (math mode switch).
If you want _ to be a regular printable character, and don't care
about using it for subscripts in math, you can simply say
to switch it to category "other". (See The TeXbook for full details of
character categories, etc.)
