It’s really very simple
I’ll show you how it works
We got a brand new dance
Called the Broken Robot Jerk

It’s a little like The Cool Jerk
Or The Herky, I suppose
You can do it when you’re naked
You can do it in your clothes
If you feel it in your circuits
Or you feel it in your toes
You really can’t control yourself
And this is how it goes

It’s the Broken Robot Jerk

It isn’t very sinful
It’s like The Quirky Jerk
It don’t take lots of talent
And it don’t take lots of work
The moves of James Brown
Meets the speech of Captain Kirk
Everybody’s broken
Do the Broken Robot Jerk

There isn’t any shoving
(It’s not that kind of Jerk)
It’s more a spastic flailing
With just a little smirk
So dance better, tough guy
While I sing this verse
You haven’t had enough guy
Till you need a nurse
