The Robot Cowboy's Lament
Eye
hwrnmnbsol
[Strummed guitar, medium waltz]

Oh it's lonely out here on the llano
Where there's no living soul for miles
'Cause I'm just a confused automaton-oh
And I've left humans' bodies in piles
Well I never set about to be a sinner
But that's simply the way that things went
Now I'm doomed to walk the world as Yul Brynner
To sing this, my cowboy's lament

[chorus]

One-oh-one, oh-one-oh-one, oh-one-oh-one-oh
One one oh one one oh oh one,
Oh oh, one-oh-one, oh oh, one-oh-one,
One one one one one oh-oh one
One-oh-one, oh-one-oh-one, oh-one-oh-one-oh
One zero one one zero one,
Oh one, oh-oh-oh-one, Oh one, one zero one
One zero zero oh one.

Now I'm chasing the last remaining person
And he's putting up some kind of fight
'Cause he's threatening me with immersion
And he's set my ten gallon alight
Now he's burned away my face with aqua regia
And my electrical pistol is shot
Oh Yul Brynner, don't be absent when I need ya
Your best doppelganger robot.

[chorus]

One-oh-one, oh-one-oh-one, oh-one-oh-one-oh
One one oh one one oh oh one,
Oh oh, one-oh-one, oh oh, one-oh-one,
One one one one one oh-oh one
One-oh-one, oh-one-oh-one, oh-one-oh-one-oh
One zero one one zero one,
Oh one, oh-oh-oh-one, Oh one, one zero one
One zero zero oh one.

[bridge]

Oh Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer, do
I'm half crazy; other half's crazy too
This is quite a peculiar dree-um
In this Roman Colliseum
But you'll look sweet as a pile of meat
And I'm back for the sequel too!

Now I fear that this guy's become a hassle
For my optical sensors are dead
And the many torchieres around this castle
Are bollixing my infrared
Now I'm down, and my circuits aren't firing
So it's time to say my goodbye
I'm not bad, it's only faulty wiring
Yul Brynner, I'll join you on high

Oh One-oh-one, oh-one-oh-one, oh-one-oh-one-oh
One one oh one one oh oh one,
Oh oh, one-oh-one, oh oh, one-oh-one,
One one one one one oh-oh one
One-oh-one, oh-one-oh-one, oh-one-oh-one-oh
One zero one one zero one,
Oh one, oh-oh-oh-one, Oh one, one zero one
One zero zero oh one.

EVERYBODY!

Oh one, oh-oh-oh-one, Oh one, one zero one
One zero
zero
oh
ONE.
