about

Robot Girlfriend is a fun, humourous, electro/indie-pop song with a fair share of sincerity and heart.

Floris Groenewald, songwriter, frontman, and vocalist, describes the song with his tongue in cheek: “Robot Girlfriend is simply about how flippin sweet it would be to have a girlfriend who’s a robot.”
“But it’s also about when your love life is so completely disappointing that you just retreat into a fantasy world and reject all sense of reality - or so my doctors say.”

lyrics

I am building a robot girlfriend
so she would never leave me
her radar dishes are double-D's
and her heart is a USB

My last girl was flesh and blood
and I guess things went okay
But her heart was in need of a memory upgrade
So she told me she couldn't stay

I am building a robot girlfriend
so she would never leave me
her radar dishes are double-D's
and her heart is a USB

Her name is Lucy
and she used to talk like this
but then I upgraded her personality
To a two point zero

I am building a robot girlfriend
so she would never leave me
her radar dishes are double-D's
and her heart is a USB

Yes, her love can be cold sometimes
and she's not great in bed
but if something goes seriously wrong
I can reprogram her head

I am building a robot girlfriend
so she would never leave me
her radar dishes are double-D's
and her heart is a USB

I am building a robot girlfriend
so she would never leave me
her radar dishes are double-D's
and her heart is a USB

Her heart's a USB
Her voice is mp3's
She's got double-D's
And she's not done with me
