Well look what Gene started… I decided to put my own thoughts on this one, and look what weirdness popped into my head this fine evening…. Thanks for the fun idea Gene!!!

Here are the lyrics:

How To Assemble An Android
© 2015 Colleen Dillon

I wanted me a nerdy boy
To be my closest friend
I looked online and found me one
He’s a man I thought I could depend

Techopedia…. Wikipedia…
Get an android friend they said
He’ll be fully functional,
And also great in bed

So his package arrived by Fedex
And a big two-wheeler was required
My box cutter nearly hummed
Dying to see what was inside

I sliced open his shipping box
And much to my dismay
His head lay on the bottom
Look’s like we’re going to be delayed

I put his head on the stump
That was supposed to be his neck
His fingers cold
His arms won’t move
His face was nothing but a wreck

Inside the box by the packing slip
A little note fell free
It said you are a silly girl
Silly girl, silly girl

Building androids from broken parts
Find a nice live nerd instead

OK, for the 3rd day in a row, I woke up with your voice singing this song in my head, and I carry it with me all day. If the responses to a songwriting challenge were judged by that standard -- how stuck it gets into one's head, then no contest, this one has possessed me!

"Technopedia, Wikipedia," "My box cutter nearly hummed," "... arrived by FedEx And a big two-wheeler was required," your poetry is excellent!

Just listen in headphones. Very juicy. You really did a great job with this, Colleen -- the headphones prove you know how to mix it up! Good, clean, fun mastering job -- I'm impressed!

What goes on in that mind of yours? Suspicious from now on and laughing out loud.

Oh what groovy, appropriate music! Great lyrics. Delightful vocals. What a wonderful job, and a story told so well, so fully, so... so... futuristic? Is that the word I'm looking for? I'm blown away! Thank you, Colleen!
