"Long ago, in another galaxy, there lived a gloomy robot"
"His name was Marvin. He was getting old and a bit rusty, and nobody liked him"
"One day, being very bored, he thought it would be a good idea to tidy up"
"All his old programs in his dusty old databank"
"There were tapes in there he hadn't played for years"
"Checking them through, he accidentally pressed a wrong button"
"And suddenly he heard"

Marvin I love you, Marvin I love you

"Well, he was sure he hadn't heard that ever before"
"He wasn't even sure he'd heard it that time"
"Because being a bored and gloomy robot, he hadn't really been listening"
"What was worse, he couldn't remember what button he'd accidentally pressed"
"Anyway, he tried a few switches at random and suddenly"

Marvin I love you, Marvin I love you
Remember, I'm programmed for you
I know we're worlds apart
Still you could break my heart
Loving you is all I can do

"Well, he heard it that time alright, no doubt about it"
"Who was singing these strange words? Was it another robot"
"Or some strange lifeform from the distant past"
"when he was a young robot and people still made the occasional attempt to like him?"
"He couldn't make it out at all. So he pushed a few buttons again"

Marvin I love you, Marvin I love you

"That was it"

I've tried to contact Marvin
I don't know why, but he never replied
Perhaps one day he'll answer
'Til then I guess, I'll keep on trying

Marvin I love you, Marvin I love you
Remember, I'm programmed for you

"'Does not compute,' he thought miserably"
"But at least he knew where to find it in his databank"
"From then on, he could play it whenever he wanted, think about what he'd missed"
"And live miserably ever after"

Marvin I love you, Marvin I love you
Remember, I'm programmed for you
I know we're worlds apart
Still you could break my heart
Loving you is all I can do

Marvin I love you, Marvin I love you
