    LYRICS

    iphone you phone glue-it-to-my-face-phone
    i'll never be alone again
    blackberry, in the loop, gives me all the latest poop
    i'll never be alone again

    facebook, ibook, myspace, please look
    i'll never be alone again
    a t & t-mo, gimme stuff that's free so
    i'll never be alone again

    makes me feel my robot roots
    back when we were all machines
    makes me feel my robot roots
    back when we were all

    i-podded bipeds, shoot me up my techno meds
    i'll never be alone again
    i need so much your shuffle classic nano touch
    i'll never be alone again

    mini-mac, air pro; white, black, day-glo
    i'll never be alone again
    call of duty, total war, rise of nations, solitaire
    i'll never be alone

    makes me feel my robot roots... baby, don't leave my laptop unplugged
    i'll never be alone again
    upgrade my plan, i'll take everything i can
    i'll never be alone (never be alone)

    backed up junk mail, drugs porn for sale
    i'll never be alone again
    twitter flicker blog me, virtually flog me
    i'll never be alone again

    text me, sext me, don't need to be next to me
    i'll never be alone again
    wear me, bare me, photoshop and share me
    i'll never be alone

    makes me feel my robot roots... Show less
