His steely skin is covered
By centuries of dust
Once he was a great one
Now he's dull and rust

An oily tear he's crying
Can you feel the pain
Of the sad, sad robot
And it's driving him insane

He can't turn back time nor history
So his life became a misery
He has to face the destiny
Nobody cares anymore

Sad, sad robot (3x)
All alone

He's a sad, sad robot (3x)
He's so alone

Me steely skin is covered
By centuries of dust
Once me was a great one
But now I'm dull and rust

An oily tear I'm crying
Can you feel me pain
I'm the sad, sad robot
Driving me insane

I can't turn back time nor history
So me life became a misery
I have to face me destiny
That I'm all on me own

Sad, sad robot
I'm a sad, sad robot (2x)
All alone

Oh, I'm a sad, sad robot
I'm a sad, sad robot (2x)
I'm all alone

Sad, sad robot (3x)
All alone

You're a sad, sad robot (3x)
You're so alone

Red, red robot
I'm a red, red robot (2x)
And so I shall return

I'm a red, red robot (3x)
So I shall return
