"Robot" as written by Dave Brock and Robert Newton Calvert....
Nine to five or ten to six, up to the city and back to the sticks
You've got to unwind your mind, you've got to unwind your mind
Sit back, switch on, your face has got a twitch on
Your fuses are blown out in a double bind
Air-conditioned, psycho-analyzed, you're very nearly human
You're so well disguised
Robot, robot, you're a robot, robot
You're warm when it's cold, you're cool when it's hot
Your life is recorded on a micro-dot, robot, robot
You'd hold the whole world in your metal claws
If it wasn't for the three laws of robotics
Automated homunculus, you queue for the paper
You queue for the bus, you're a "good morning" machine
You're a "how are you?" device
Sit back, light up, never put a fight up
Sit there fuming until your face goes green
Air conditioned, and desensitized, you're very nearly human
You're so well disguised
Robot, robot
I am a robot
I am your slave
I can not harm you
I can only obey
The three laws

    General CommentThis is obviously based off of Isaac Asimov's' I, Robot series, as seen in the: "I can only obey The three laws" These are the three laws of robotics invented by Asimov himself, also the lyrics: "You're so well disguised" Is a reference to when the Director of the Robot Factory says how much the robots look like humans.
