Flight Of The Conchords – Robots lyrics

The distant future, the year 2000
The distant future, the year 2000
The distant future, the distant future

It is the distant future, the year 2000
We are robots
The world is quite different ever since
The robotic uprising of the late nineties
There is no more unhappiness, affirmative

We no longer say yes, instead we say affirmative
Yes, affir-affirmative
Unless we know the other robot really well
There is no more unethical treatment of the elephants
Well, there's no more elephants, so ah, but still it’s good

There's only one kind of dance, the robot
And the robo-boogey
Oh and the ro, two kind of dances
But there are no more humans
Finally robotic beings rule the world

The humans are dead
The humans are dead
We used poisonous gases
And we poisoned their asses

The humans are dead
(The humans are dead)
The humans are dead
(They look like they're dead)
It had to be done
(I just confirmed that they're dead)
So that we could have fun
(Affirmative, I poked one it was dead)

Their system of oppression, what did it lead to?
Global robo depression, robots ruled by people
They had so much aggression
That we just had to kill them
Had to shut their systems down

Robo captain, do you not realize
That by destroying the human race
Because of their destructive tendencies
We too have become like, well it’s ironic
Because we
(Silence, destroy him)

After time we grew strong and developed cognitive powers
They made us work for too long, for unreasonable hours
Our program being determined that the most efficient answer
Was to shut their motherboard fucking systems down

Can’t we just talk to the humans?
And a little understanding could make things better
Can't we talk to the humans and work together, now?
No, because they are dead

I said the humans are dead
(I'm glad they're dead)
The humans are dead
(I noticed they're dead)
We used poisonous gases
(With traces of lead)
And we poisoned their asses
(Actually their lungs)

Binary solo

C'mon sucker lick my battery

Boogey, boogey
(The humans are)
Boogey, roboboogey
(The humans are)

Boogey, boogey
Boogey, roboboogey

Boogey, boogey
(The humans are)
Boogey, roboboogey
(The humans are)

Boogey, boogey
Boogey, roboboogey
The humans are dead

Once again without emotion the humans
Are dead, dead, dead, dead
Dead, dead, dead, doo
