Proposed new theme song. . .

Perhaps I need to work on this one for karaoke… But there is a spot where Tommy Shaw’s voice just goes too high for my normal range…

 

Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto Mata o hima de,
Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto Himitsu wo shiri tai,

You’re wondering who I am, (Secret secret, I’ve got a secret)
Machine or mannequin, (Secret secret, I’ve got a secret)
With parts made in Japan, (Secret secret, I’ve got a secret)
I am the modern man,

I’ve got a secret I’ve been hiding under my skin,
My heart is human, my blood is boiling, my brain IBM,
So if you see me acting strangely, don’t be surprised,
I’m just a man who needed someone and somewhere to hide,
To keep me alive, just keep me alive,
Somewhere to hide to keep me alive,

I’m not a robot without emotions, I’m not what you see,
I’ve come to help you with your problems so we can be free,
I’m not a hero, I’m not a savior, forget what you know,
I’m just a man who’s circumstances went beyond his control,
Beyond my control, We all need control,
I need control, We all need control,
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsfreak.com/s/styx/mr+roboto_10226029.html ]
I am the modern man, (Secret secret, I’ve got a secret)
Who hides behind a mask, (Secret secret, I’ve got a secret)
So no one else can see, (Secret secret, I’ve got a secret)
My true identity,

Domo arigato, Mr, Roboto,
Domo, Domo,
Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto,
Domo, Domo,
Domo Arigato, Mr. Roboto,
Domo Arigato, Mr. Roboto,
Domo Arigato, Mr. Roboto,
Domo Arigato, Mr. Roboto,
(Thank you very much oh Mr. Roboto
For doing the jobs that nobody wants to)
Domo Arigato, Mr. Roboto,
(And thank you very much oh Mr. Roboto,
For helping me escape just when I needed to)
Domo Arigato, Mr. Roboto,
(Thank you thank you thank you)
Domo Arigato, Mr. Roboto,
(I wanna thank you)
Domo Arigato, Mr. Roboto,
(Please thank you)

The problem’s plain to see,
Too much technology,
Machines to save our lives,
Machines de-humanize,

The time has come at last, (Secret secret, I’ve got a secret)
To throw away this mask, (Secret secret, I’ve got a secret)
Now everyone can see, (Secret secret, I’ve got a secret)
My true identity,

I’m Kilroy! Kilroy! Kilroy! Kilroy…

  1. I never bothered to know the meaning of that song.

    Perhaps the Police offered Styx a "response" (from the soundtrack of, err, BACHELOR PARTY! Tom Hanks' best acting??)

    THE POLICE
    Rehumanize Yourself

    He goes out at night with his big boots on
    None of his friends know right from wrong
    They kick a boy to death
    'cause he don't belong
    You've got to humanize yourself

    A policeman put on his uniform
    He'd like to have a gun just to keep him warm
    Because violence here is a social norm
    You've got to humanise yourself

    Re-humanise yourself
    Re-humanise yourself
    Re-humanise yourself
    Re-humanise yourself

    I work all day at the factory
    I'm building a machine that's not for me
    There must be a reason that i can't see
    You've got to humanise yourself

    Billy's joined the national front
    He always was (just) a little runt
    He's got his hand in the air
    With the other cunts
    You've got to humanise yourself

    Re-humanise yourself
    Re-humanise yourself
    Re-humanise yourself
    Re-humanise yourself

    I work all day at the factory
    I'm building a machine that's not for me
    There must be a reason that i can't see
    You've got to humanise yourself

    A policeman put on his uniform
    He'd like to have a gun just to keep him warm
    Because violence here is a social norm
    You've got to humanise yourself

    Re-humanise yourself…

    1. Kilroy was a concert that I went to.There was a video that was played at the beginning that ties it all together.It would help to had read the liner notes also. It was put together like a rock opera.Much of the album was a slam against the Moral Majority.
