I tell you life is strange and about to get stranger
The little robot in my brain is shouting “Danger! Danger!”
I asked her out because I thought it might be fun
Now I can hear my inner robot saying

“Run, Will Robinson, Run!”

She drifted through the stars just like a creature from a dream
But when I scanned for scruples there was nothing on the screen
She shot a smile across my bow but no one heard me scream
Before I knew what hit me I was in her tractor beam

I tell you life is strange and about to get stranger
The little robot in my brain is shouting “Danger! Danger!”
I asked her out because I thought it might be fun
Now I can hear my inner robot saying “Run, Will Robinson, Run!”

Run, Will Robinson, Run (hey hey hey)
Run, Will Robinson, Run (hey hey hey hey)
Run, Will Robinson, Run (hey hey hey)
Run, Will Robinson, Run (hey hey)

She blasted through my airlock, her dress was set to stun,
She kissed me on the lips, I said “Am I the only one?”
She said “Of course you are, now how could there be any doubt?
There was your best friend yesterday, but oh, he doesn’t count

Run, Will Robinson, Run (hey hey hey)
Run, Will Robinson, Run (hey hey hey hey)
Run, Will Robinson, Run (hey hey hey)
Run, Will Robinson, Run (hey hey)

And now I’m mixing metaphors, but sometimes I think
I’m doomed like Captain Kirk to date the alien of the week
Those stupid teenage love songs are poisoning our minds
Let’s blast off into hyperspace and leave ’em far behind honey

I am just who I am I’m not who you imagine me to be
I am just who I am I’m not who you imagine me to be
I am just who I am I’m not who you imagine me to be
I am just who I am I’m not who you imagine – whoo!

I tell you life is strange and about to get stranger
The little robot in my brain is shouting “Danger! Danger!”
I asked her out because I thought it might be fun
Now I can hear my inner robot saying “Run, Will Robinson…”

Now I digress again, but someone tell me this –
What kind of parent leaves their kid alone with Doctor Smith?

Run, Will Robinson, Run (hey hey hey)
Run, Will Robinson, Run (hey hey hey hey)
Run, Will Robinson, Run (hey hey hey)
Run, Will Robinson, Run (hey hey)
(hey hey)
(hey hey)

(hey hey)
