  • Lock up your brain
    Because I'm here again
    I'm never bored to steal your chords
    Ooh-ooh Zerox Machine
    Ooh-ooh Zerox Machine

    Give me a line
    Or a middle eight
    I've got the best so I want the rest
    Ooh-ooh Zerox machine
    Ooh-ooh Zerox machine

    Lets get together before its too late
    Collect up the ideas, duplicate
    Filling up the forms, send them off tonight
    And you'll be the owner of the copyright
    Of the copyright, of the copyright

    Time of the essence get your ears to the
    However else can the hits be found?

    I may look happy, healthy and clean
    A dark brown c voice and suit pristine
    But behind the smile there is a Zerox

    I'm a Zerox machine
