looper – my robot lyrics

i thought i’d teach my robot to write all of my songs.
i thought i’d teach my robot to write all my songs,
and i’d send him out into the morning to see what he could see-
just to roll around the city, and store it all up in his memory.
then when he got back he could cut up the drum breaks,
make the loops.
i thought i’d teach my robot to write all my songs,
and i sent off for the book that told me how to re-arrange it’s circuits.
i bought all the new bits it said i would need,
then i opened my robot up,
and i got to work.
i thought i’d teach my robot to write all my songs,
and i spent days soldering-
till the whole house smelt like the paris metro,
in summertime.
and i was driving on by the thought
of how i would have the time just to live
when he made all the loops.
and when finally i was finished,
and i switched him back on,
nothing happened.
he didn’t work at all.
and now i’ve spent months on him,
hours and hours every day.
and a lot of money too.
and he just lies in pieces in the corner of the room;
totally useless.
