about

I have two robots so far to do my bidding - a Litter Bot and a Roomba. How many robots does one need to turn evil? And what happens after that?

lyrics

My place is dirty, but I hate to clean
Can't find a keeper because they tend to scream
I wallowed in despondence until I found the key
To solve every issue that had been plaguing me
An army of robots is just what I need
On every occasion they'll act on my lead
To call forth solutions effective and severe
An army of robots is here

My city elders a nuisance persist
Won't nod respectfully or bow before my fist
I should make them suffer and always speak wist-
fully of the past and the fingers that they missed
An army of robots is just what I need
On every occasion they'll act on my lead
To call forth solutions effective and severe
An army of robots is here

Well, the robots I built got a little bit too smart
They stopped following orders; they're appreciating art
Of those that wouldn't follow the dictates of my heart
To make an example, I tore a few apart (and now)
The army of robots appears to have turned
Upon the kindly master from whom all was learned
I did want destruction, but not aimed at me
I'm wishing now I'd purchased the extended warrantee
An army of robots I now must avoid
To slip the authorities I've had them all destroyed
My planning was flawless, but robots left me vexed;
Perhaps I'll try alligators next!
