    Marvin (written by Adams/Moore/Sinclair)

    I’m just a robot and I know my place
    A metal servant to the human race
    I work my can off trying to satisfy
    I know they’ll disconnect me by and by
    Chip on my shoulder made of silicon
    My printed circuit’s like a lexicon
    Ten billion logic functions, maybe more
    They make me pick the paper off the floor

    Solitary solinoid
    Terminally paranoid

    Know what makes me really mad
    They clean me with a Brillo Pad
    A carwash wouldn’t be so bad
    Life! Don’t talk to me about life

    I’m so depressed I could expectorate
    My moving parts are in a solid state
    I want to rust in peace, switch off and lie
    In that great junk yard in the sky

    Solitary solinoid
    Terminally paranoid

    Nothing left to be enjoyed
    Every diode rheumatoid

    Outer alloy
    Inner void

    Happiness has been destroyed

    The following info about Marvin’s phenomenal career as a paranoid rock star taken from THIS Douglas Adams FAQ.

    Marvin the Paranoid Android, voiced by Stephen Moore, was a pop star in the UK in 1981. He not only released two singles, but he even appeared on “Top Of The Pops”, the BBC’s pop music programme. The first single, “Marvin”, reached the staggering position of #53 in the charts in May ’81, and was in the top 75 for four weeks.

    The Guinness book of Hit Singles describes him as “UK, Robot”.
    There were two singles: ‘Marvin’, with the B-side ‘Metal Man’, and the follow-up ‘Reasons to be Miserable’ with the B-side ‘Marvin I Love You’. The ‘Reasons to be Miserable’/’Marvin I Love You’ single was actually a ‘double B-side’. They were released by Depressive Discs.

    “Reasons to be Miserable” was a parody of “Reasons to be Cheerful” by Ian Dury and the Blockheads.

    Getting a hold of these records is going to be very hard indeed. Even finding them on the Dr. Demento compilation on which they appeared will be difficult.

    Would love to hear a Hotblack Desatio (Disaster Area)/ Marvin Duet — what a delightfully depressing disaster that would be.


    brilliant got the tunes i have been looking for ages this site is fab.


    I hadn’t heard that “Marvin” song in many, many years. In fact, I’d completely forgotten about it, so I really appreciate the reminder. Funny stuff. 🙂


    Yeah! Thanks Logan – I haven’t heard that song in years!
