Let us build robots

sung to the tune of ‘America’ by Simon and Garfunkel

Let us build robots
we’ll wire components together
Ive got some relay spikes here in my bag

so I bought a pack of twizzlers
and nylon wire ties
and go off to work twords a regional.

Kathy I said as we boarded a BlueBird for Pittsburg
Atlanta seems like a dream to me now
It took me four days to hook the pnumatics up
Im gonna win at the regional!

Laughing on the bus
playing games with noise makers
She said the man with the button suit
was Woodie Flowers
I said be carefull
his sneakers are really a Segway.

Toss me a speed control
I think theres one in my raincoat
we smoked the last one an hour ago!
So I looked at our strategy
She led cheers for the team
and the crowd roared over the playing field.

Kathy we lost! I said
though I knew she was weeping.
Our goals are all empty and I dont know why?
Riding the bus towards the New Jersey Turnpike
what went wrong?
we lost at the regional!

Hey now…it’s not nice to make fun of your fellow Robotics geeks… :slight_smile:

Haha. That’s great. I hate that song, but you make it bearable!

Wow, it seems like everyone I know is doing parodies of Simon and Garfunkel songs… you can ask Mr. Lavery about the one he got… on second thought… don’t.

Cute song! Will your team be singing it at the next competition? Embarrassing, but typical, my parody writing has been limited to the songs I would sing to my cats… like “Two Kitties” (Spin Doctors “Two Princes”)


at least the cats never complained about my singing…

::starts singing::

I don’t know that I can’t take no more, it ain’t no lie… I don’t wanna see you out that door, baby bye bye bye.

::starts dancing::

I don’t wanna be a fool for you, just am not a player in your game for two. You may hate me but it aint no lie…

::sees two AT-4’s coming in::

Alright, I get the idea. Nice lyrics you wrote, but I’ve never actually heard the song.

::flies away before more bazookas are fired::

I like it.

Segway HT - as sung by Janis Joplan

Oh Lord
wont you buy me
a Segway H T

My friends
all ride skateboards
and make fun of me

Please ask
Mr Kamen
to send one to me

Oh Lord
wont you buy me
a Segway H T.

[BTW - what are you going to do with your Segway if you win the CD raffle this saturday?]
