(Both)
It is the future,
The distant future
It is the distant future,
The year 2000

We are robots

(Jermaine)
The world is very different
Ever since the robotic uprising of the mid-90's
There is no more unhappiness

(Bret)
Affirmative

(Jermaine)
We no longer say "yes",
Instead we say affirmative

(Bret)
Yes, affirmative

(Jermaine)
Unless it's a more colloquial situation,
With a few robo-friends

There is only one kind of dance
The Robot

(Bret)
And the Robo-Boogie

(Jermaine)
Ah, yes, two kinds of dances

(Both)
Finally, robotic beings rule the world

The humans are dead
The humans are dead

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

(Jermaine)
Right, they are dead

(Bret)
The humans are dead

(Jermaine)
Yes, they look like they're dead

(Bret)
It had to be done

(Jermaine)
I'll just confirm that they're dead

(Bret)
So that we could have fun

(Jermaine)
Affirmative, I poked one
It was dead

Can't we just talk to the humans,
A little while longer?
It could make things better
Can't we talk to the humans that
We're together now?

(Bret)
No, because they are dead

(Jermaine)
Binary solo!

(Bret)
0000001, 00000011
000000111, 00001111
0000001, 00000011
000000111, 00001111

(Jermaine)
Come on sucker, lick my battery

(Both)
Boogie, boogie

(Jermaine)
ROBO BOOGIE

(Both)
Boogie, robo boogie

(Jermaine)
The humans are dead
Once again without emotion,

(Both)
The Humans are dead dead dead
Dead dead dea-
