The Lyrics

As a technician, I can sympathize with this guy. I still wouldn't hire him though. Just don't forget that when the world is taken over by robots with superior intelligence, they'll still get pissed off when they get stuck with the job of fixing each other!
Oh no, I got to fix the roboto
Technician saving the day
Warranty ran out? No! Fix the roboto
Get my overtime pay

You don't know who I am (fix it fix it, I gotta fix it!)
A lowly tech-ni-can (fix it fix it, I gotta fix it!)
With parts made in Taiwan (fix it fix it, I gotta fix it!)
Can't even turn it on

I've got a meter I've been hiding in my tool box
My co-workers always steal it, protect it with locks
So if you hear me, yelling screaming, going half-cocked
I must have grabbed the high voltage and I just got shocked
I ain't too smart - it stopped my heart
I need CPR - to get it to start

I'm not a genius, I'm not an expert, flunked technical school
I've come to fix this freakin' robot so I can look cool
I'm not a hero, I'm not paid like one, that's not my life role
I'm just a man whose big fat fingers turn volume controls
And audio controls, and voltage controls
and current controls, but NOT THAT CONTROL!

I am the service man (fix it fix it, I gotta fix it!)
Who drives up in a van (fix it fix it, I gotta fix it!)
Who steals co-workers' shirts (fix it fix it, I gotta fix it!)
And so today I'm Bert

Don't know why I got to fix the roboto
Don't know (don't know)...don't know (don't know)
Don't know why I got to fix the roboto
Don't know (don't know)...don't know (don't know)

Don't know diddly squat - No! Fix the roboto
Nobody knows how to fix the roboto
Can't get the parts to fix the roboto
Haven't got the smarts to fix the roboto

Thank you very much, you damn roboto
For making me fix you 'cause no one else wanted to
And thank you very much, you freakin' roboto
For breaking down right when I was eating lunch
Screw you - screw you, screw you
I want to scrap you, please, trash you

[Supervisor]
The problem's plain to see:
It's right in front of me
The processor got fried
When you stuck your hand inside!

[Technician]
The boss said I'm a jerk
Had to find other work
'Bot fixing days are through
Found new employment too
I'm Goodwrench! Goodwrench! Goodwrench! Goodwrench!

About as nonsensical as the original...

Ditto on MrMacphisto's comment. I thought it was hilarious myself; I was cracking up reading it. Excellent work here; I give you a perfect score. Just about every line was funny.
