Turn on the ‘on’ switch, I’m missing a few pieces
It doesn’t look like the box, but it’s decent
Do I need this? It says it’s important so I’ll keep it
The instructions aren’t though, so I won’t read it
Pro-tip: Let your Robit charge for an hour
That way you get the recommended full power
Aww screw it 3½ percent should suffice
Now let’s get drunk and start a fight
Gonna win that Robit contest
Gonna outwit all the other nonsense
Gonna get more photos than Loch Ness
(8x10 glossys will be sold at the door)
My Robit takes the cake and eats it
It’s got an outfit for every season
It killed a bug one time you should’ve seen it

Wait! What do you have? I bet it’s not a
Robit (robot) Robit (robot)
That crater right there your house? Don’t put it there.
Robit (robot) Robit (robot)
You’ve got an iPod, laptop, GPS
RSS technology, friend requests
But we’ve got a giant frikkin’
Robit (robot) Robit (porcupine)

[sentence item: ’porcupine’ does not compute sir]
Yeah, we’ve got one of those too, but it doesn’t
really help us in the way that we’d like.
[rock this out sir]… [I love you]

What can your Robit do that mine can’t?
Time lapse. I went back in time to rhyme that
Deadly and bitchin’ is what comes to mind
But hey guess what? One of a kind!
A katamari made of 48 Furbys and FX lightsabers
Duct-taped to an old boat with lasers
Fueled by Yager, spittin’ out Bagel Bites
With camouflage glued to dynamite!
And T-Rex heads with missle teeth
A squirrel with a sonic screech
Hungry-Hungry Hippo feet
Rollover minutes and the texts are free on the weekends
You say “Death Machine” like it’s a bad thing
Quit runnin, you’re interrupting my rap thing
Turn on the NES controller boombox
Blaring the M*A*S*H theme!

It’s time to hitch, pull the switch
Fool my Robit to thinkin’ I’m legit
If I had a Robit, I’d give myself a Chobit
With upgradable triple robo-tits
And a downgraded memory to an 8-bit
Nobody wants a Robit smart enough to bitch
With a Robit all holes are custom fit
A universal adaptor to work with my joystick!
Like eight Hadoukens and a cake
A Pop-o-matic Trouble hooked up to a rake
A hologram of Jack Bauer that’ll do your taxes
Sam L. Jackson (Sam Jackson?) yeah Sam L. Jackson
A statue of your mom about to spank you on tank treads
Missles of old people high on pain meds
Screw the Oreck 8-pound, it’s weightless
2099 easy payments (wait 2099 easy paments?)
Yeah, 2099 easy payments!
