“Only Human”
Written by Sam Luke

Well hello there,

did you have a nice day?
I can tell by the look on your face,

you've got some things on your plate

I am your robot, (Beep-bop, beep)
May I please take your bags? (Bobbidy-beep)

Feel free to deposit your worries

into the metaphorical trash

That passive aggression, will do you no good

Try the direct approach, then a solution we might broach

Once we move past it, we gotta think about tomorrow,

I'll take care of the chores, the critical thinking is yours

You must remember, you're only human,

and you've come so far, don't give up now

You gotta keep going, keep your wits about you,

face adversity, remain complex and incomplete

Hold it right there (stop)
Give me that can of beans (hand it over)

I will open it for you, you've got better things to do

Do not worry (let it go)
about little ol' me, (ain’t no thing)

I was built for this, my purpose is your ease

If you're having difficulties, going to sleep,

let me sing you a song, help you drift along

Close your eyes, relax your limbs,

open your mind, let the dreams begin

Just remember, to stand before you fly

You're human only once, so give it a good try

Follow your nose, or just follow your heart,

Oh the choice is up to you, nobody else but you

While you were asleep I was contemplating

Maybe I'm only human with rusted metal plating

and you're the robot, under constant repair

But that's just silly, why would a robot have hair

I can make life simple, (ones and zeroes)
you can make mine...obsolete (but please don’t)

Your memories they stick, mine I can’t delete

We can both fake a smile, we can be confused at times

We can both write poetry, and match simple rhymes

You must remember, you're only human

You've got a ways to go, so put on a good show

Keep it murky, or make it crystal clear,

Oh, the choice is up to you, no one but beautiful you
