I do everything he never would
I'm mechanical man
When I say I understood, 
I only knew where to stand

But I'll be there for you
When your world's on a wire
My mechanical moves
Fit the mood you desire

Hope I will recreate the thrill
Take your body by the hand
Shake your soul awake
Dropping science at your feet

I whisper low and sweet
If you wanna see me angry I can be
Lose a number miss a key and I will be

I can read your mind
But still believe your lies
I can dance but I'll never understand
Mechanical Man

Hope I will recreate the thrill
Take your body by the hand
Shake your soul awake
Shake your soul awake

But I'm not perfect after all
I still get jealous when he calls
Something's wrong, pride was never in the plan
Turn me in for a brand new mechanical man

Hope he will recreate the thrill
Shake your soul awake
Shake your soul awake

You can get me wet
Scream when you're upset
I'll never understand you
I'm programmed to forget
You can get me wet
Scream when you're upset
I'll never understand you
I'm programmed to forget

Shake your soul awake

    General CommentI'm pretty sure this song is written from the perspective of a woman's vibrator. I tried listening to it a different way but its hard to think of anything else when he says "i will recreate the thrill.. take your body by the hand.. shake your sould awake.."
    Any other ideas?
