  • On channel 27, at a quarter to 3
    I saw the craziest thing that I ever did see
    No cash, no check, no COD
    So I called them with my credit card quick as can be
    Nobody better get in my way
    I got the package in the mail today
    I popped all the bubble wrap and threw it away
    Now I'm learning Japanese so I can read what the instructions say

    There was a bag of nuts and bolts and screws
    It didn't say which screwdriver to use
    I don't know what the radiation warnings about
    But hey, that's okay, I can figure it out
    Four legs, rubber bands, sprockets and gears
    Laser beam eyes and microphone ears
    Put it all together, what did I see?
    Saw a robot cat, looking right at me

    So when I saw "ro-", you say "bot"
    Ro... bot, ro... bot
    When I say "bot", you say "cat"
    Bot... cat, bot... cat
    Word to the r to the o to the b
    To the o-t-c to the a to the t
    So when I say robot, you say cat
    Robot (cat), robot (cat)

    Well, it slices, it dices, it catches the mices
    It's got a stock ticker with the wall street prices
    Knows how to sew, cook, play the guitar
    Said it even put a new transmission in my car
    It's got a titanium, cranium chip in the branium
    Best representium
    Pour in the eggs, milk, syrup and flour
    'cause the robot cat needs pancake power

    So when I saw "ro-", you say "bot"
    Ro... bot, ro... bot
    When I say "bot", you say "cat"
    Bot... cat, bot... cat
    Word to the r to the o to the b
    To the o-t-c to the a to the t
    So when I say robot, you say cat
    Robot (cat), robot (cat)

    One, two, three and to the four
    No doggy-dog knocking on my door
    It's the postman bringing me a thousand more
    Cause i'm building me an army and i'm going to war
    I said this my moment, this is my hour
    The robot cat is my ticket to power
    Better get ready for the cat invasion
    World domination, that's the occasion
    They're better, and stronger, and smarter, and faster
    Soon everybody will be calling me master
    The humans surrender, and that'll be that
    I'll say welcome to the planet of the robot cat

    So when I saw "ro-", you say "bot"
    Ro... bot, ro... bot
    When I say "bot", you say "cat"
    Bot... cat, bot... cat
    Word to the r to the o to the b
    To the o-t-c to the a to the t
    So when I say robot, you say cat
    Robot (cat), robot (cat)
    So when I saw "ro-", you say "bot"
    Ro... bot, ro... bot
    When I say "bot", you say "cat"
    Bot... cat, bot... cat Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
