The Lyrics

clean grand machines..an automaton
a thinking thing...with titanium heart
you must be alert...you know i have bad news
cause you'll have to have it's plug pulled out
after the android shuffle

cool laser beams...the device is so smart
unscrew it's face...and it's head comes apart
but it won't budge..until you play it some blues
and you'll have to have it's plug pulled out
after the android shuffle

it might be peaceful now
but when the jazz comes through
its gonna dance and how
the oil is gonna fill it's head
when it parades it's stuff
its gonna draw a crowd

(robot rocks out during guitar solo)

and you'll have to have it's plug pulled out
after the android shuffle

you know they don't have feet like ours
but its got know-how...there's dance pow'r
it loves to do the cha cha cha
and now it shows me...the fox trot

clean grand machines..an automaton
a thinking thing...with titanium heart
you must be alert...you know i have bad news
cause you'll have to have it's plug pulled out
after the android shuffle
yes, you'll have to have it's plug pulled out
after the android shuffle

(From the "Incredible String Band" tune "Robot City") "Oh, Down in Robot City, you might think it's play, play, play / Down in Robot City, you might think it's play, play, play / But a number five Robot has to work all the night and day" - guess your fellow has got a better number than that "number five". This was wonderful, alvin. 5's from my number five Robot...

I especially like how the robot rocks out during the guitar solo!

alvin - are you serious? They are still around? Wow! I haven't kept track of them for many a year. But they were always kind of interesting...never seen them perform but have some of the old LP's. Some of their stuff was really extremely clever and well done. Some of their albums were wall-to-wall good stuff. But no Robin Williamson, eh? Not sure if that really is the ISB...guess it's Mike Heron and ?? now...Hmmm...guess it should not surprise that our minds might have some similar twists within ~ ~ ~

I was going to give you fives, but I had to dock you a point. 'Cause do you recall... the most famous android of all? Data, the future android had a pair of yellow eyes. And if you ever saw them, you'd see that he never cries...
