I was born in the factory
Far away from the milk and tea
What's the use?
Oh, what's the use?

You chitters are split in half
A mechanical sacrificial calf for you
Oh, all for you

Steam engenius, you see
Steam engenius enough to answer anything you need
But what's the use?

Chum and nature was what started me
Well, I acted once right but naturally it wasn't hatching love
