The Humans are Dead - (Robots) – studio version
by Flight of the Conchords
[Robot1=Jermaine, Robot2=Bret, Dissident Robo-Peon=Jermaine, Robo-Captain=Bret, PRSHRV Robot=Jermaine, Robogogogirl=Bret]

Sung robotically:

Both: The distant future
Both: The year 2000

Both: The distant future
Both: The year 2000

Both: The distant future
Both: The distant future

Spoken robotically:

Robot 1: It is the distant future. The year 2000.
Robot 2: We are robots.
Robot 1: The world is quite different ever since the robotic uprising of the late '90s.
Robot 1: There is no more unhappiness.
Robot 2: Affirmative.
Robot 1: We no longer say “yes.” Instead we say, “affirmative.”
Robot 2: Yes. Affir--affirmative.
Robot 1: Unless we know the other robot really well.
Robot 2: There is no more unethical treatment of the elephants.
Robot 1: Well, there’s no more elephants, so…but still it’s good.
Robot 2: Uh.
Robot 1: There’s only one kind of dance: the robot.
Robot 2: Oh, and the robo, you mean.
Robot1: Oh, and the rob--two k--two kindsa dances.
Robot 2: There are no more humans.

Both: Finally, robotic beings rule the world!

Sung robotically:

Both: The humans are dead.
Both: The humans are dead.
Both: We used poisonous gases
Both: And we poisoned their asses.

Robot 2: The humans are dead.
(Robot 1: He’s right they are dead.)
Robot 2: The humans are dead.
(Robot 1: They look like they’re dead.)
Robot 2: It had to be done.
(Robot 1: I’ll just confirm that they’re dead.)
Robot 2: So that we could have fun.
(Robot 1: Affirmative. I poked one, it was dead.)

Robot 2: Their system of oppression
Robot 1: What did it lead to?
Robot 2: Global robo-depression
Robot 1: Robots ruled by people.
Robot 2: They had so much aggression
Both: That we just had to kill them
Both: Had to shut their systems down.

Spoken robotically:

Dissident Robo-Peon: Robo-Captain, do you not realize that by destroying the human race because of their destructive tendencies, we too have become like—well, it’s ironic, because we—

Robo-Captain: Mmm. Silence. Destroy him. *peeiew*

Robot dissident: No--!*zde-beiw*

Sung robotically:

Robot 2: After time we grew strong.
Robot 1: Developed cognitive powers.
Robot 2: They made us work for too long.
Robot 1: For unreasonable hours.
Robot 2: Our programming determined
Both: That the most efficient answer
Both: Was to shut their motherboard-blooming systems dowwwwwn--

Spoken robotically:

Pensive robot with Stephen Hawking robo-voice:

Can’t we just talk to the humans?
A little understanding could make things better.
Can’t we talk to the humans and work together, now?

Both: No! Because they are dead!

Sung robotically:

Robot 2: I said the humans are dead.
(Robot 1: I’m glad they are dead.)
Robot 2: The humans are dead.
(Robot 1: I noticed. They’re dead.)
Robot 2: We used poisonous gases.
(Robot 1: With traces of lead.)
Robot 2: And we poisoned their asses.
(Robot 1: Actually, their lungs.)

Robot 1: Binary solo:

Robot 2: 0000001
Robot 2: 00000011
Robot 2: 000000111
Robot 2: 00001111

Robot 1: 0h
Robot 2: 0000001
Robot 2: 0h, 0h!
Robot 2: 00000011
Robot 1: 0h, 0ne!
Robot 2: 000000111
Robot 1: C’mon sucker, lick my battery

Robogogogirl: Boogie...
Robogogogirl: Boogie...
Robot 1: The humans are
Robogogogirl: Boogie...
Robogogogirl: Robo-boogie
Robot 1: The humans are
Robogogogirl: Boogie...
Robogogogirl: Boogie...
Robot 1: Robo-boogie
Robogogogirl: Boogie...
Robogogogirl: Robo-boogie
Robot 1: The humans are dead.

Both: Once again without emotion:
Both: The humans are dead-dead-dead-dead-dead-dead-dead-dead-de--* (shut off)

Yay, yay, can I submit the lyrics for Something Special for the Ladies?

Ah, I love this song.

SOMETHING SPECIAL FOR THE LADIES

Speaking
Jemaine: We've been a lot of places around the world
Brett: Really?
J: Uuh, we've been to Wellington. Auckland. I think the thing we like most, in all these places...is the ladies.
B: Yip. It's the ladies. Yeah.
J: That's right. And uh, we just wanna give...give you something back ladies. Just ah, do something special for all the ladies of the world.
B: Yeah. Ok.
J: 'Bout time, aye.

I just-a wanna do somethin special,
for all the ladies in the wor-or-orld.
I just-a wanna do somethin special,
for all the ladies in the world.
And the girls, so don't forget the girls.
I just-a wanna do somethin special,
for all the ladies in the world,
all around the wor-or-or-or-orld.

Parisian.
Ladies.
Caribbean.
Ladies.
Bolivian. (?)
Ladies.
Peruvian. (?)
Laides.
Eastern Indo-seanian.
Ladies.
Republic of Dominican.
Ladies.
Amphibian.
Ladies.
Auckland-an.
Ladies.

Outta sight. Amazing lady.
Late night. Hard workin' lady.
Aphrodite. Maiden lady (?)
Hermaphrodite. Yeah the lady-man-lady.

All you hermaphrodite lady-man-ladies,
with your sexy lady bits and your sexy man bits too,
even you must be into you.

All the ladies in the world wanna get next to you,
show you some gratitude,
by makin' love to you,
it's the least we could do.

If every soldier in the world,
put down his weapons, and picked up a woman,
what a peaceful world this world would be.

Red-heads not war heads.
Blondes not bombs.
We're talkin about,
Brunettes not fighter jets.

Oh, it's gotta be sweet 16s not F16s.
When will the governments realise,
it's gotta be funky sexy ladies.

I have vision, and all I can see,
Is the all of you wil the all of me.
In a world of peace and harmony,
where every lady gets a little piece of me.

I've been to Paris, to Auckland, to Amsterdam
and a wham-bam-merci-thankyou-danka ma'm.
So I don't care if you're ugly of you're skanky or you're small
I just wanna do a little something special for you all.

All the ladies.
In the Woooohooohooo-haaayaaa-ooyooorld.
You deserve it.
Girls.

=====

Yay!

That's one of my absolute favs!! But isn't it

When will the government realize?

instead of

"When will the dumber minds realise"




I could easily be wrong on that one..........

That makes more sense....

I changed it, thanks!

And yes, this song is absolutely fantastic. When I first saw the Conchords live they played this song. My mum, my friend and I were all at the end of the front row, and Jemaine goes:

"There's lots of ladies out there tonight...let me count you off..." as he points to us three he says "One.....one.....one.....hah, you're all number one to me"

Smooth as silk!
