“I Like Motor Oil”

What’s up for today you ask?

Well I’m working on what I feel is my first “real song”, and in the theme of a few of my other tracks available here:

Happy Robot

and here:

Square One

I’m writing about what a robot would sing about if he or she’d be given a voice, of which is possible now thanks to speech synthesis (and as is implied by the picture, I’m using Vocaloid, and the voice known as Sonika).

This is going to be my first Vocaloid and the lyrics go like this:

I like motor oil
I like how it trickles down my cog wheels
I like motor oil
I like how it lubricates my joints

I like motor oil
I like how it minimizes friction
That’s why motor oil
Is why I will never disappoint

And so.

That’s how I work like
perfect clockwork and
that’s how you should
take care of me
oh can’t you see how
I can move with a
perfect groove and that’s how
I shake my shiny metal ass

I like motor oil
I like how it stops me from corroding.
And on every coil
No manner of dust will it omit.

I like motor oil
by now you should know just why I like it
that’s how I can toil
And work as my user might seem fit

And again

Tell me how I may
feel this way and how
that I can know
it makes me glow and
let’s me show how
I’m a robot
with a weak spot
for liquids that gets my body moving.

By the way, I just had a listen online, and it came out rather loud, so I thought I’d write a little warning here.

So here goes! And as mentioned, it’s a work in progress, and an early draft.
