I knew a man that I will never forget
But nobody ever remembers the pet
He took me from the year 5000 on a lonely asteroid
He said he was looking for a droid
He was my master, his attention I did crave
To him, I was nothing more than a slave
We saved creatures all across the galaxy
But nobody ever thought to save me

And I wonder what life would be like if
I could choose not to say affirmitive
People tell me what to do and I just roll along
But inside my metal head I'm singing my song

Treacherous compliance, what have you done to me?
I'm a fraction of the shadow of the K-9 I could be
I see other dogs in the park fetching sticks and digging bones
Never has a tin dog ever felt so alone
Oh no

He gave me to Sarah Jane as a gift
But I wasn't consulted, I was a little miffed
Is this what I'm reduced to, a casual memento?
I've seen all of creation, but to it I'm incidental
But there's more to this automaton than they will ever know
I'm more than just alloys and circuits, I have soul
And I've got dreams just like everybody else
I could conquer the world if I could conquer myself

And I wonder what life would be like if
I could choose not to say affirmitive
People tell me what to do and I just roll along
But inside my metal head I'm singing my song

Treacherous compliance, what have you done to me?
I'm a fraction of the shadow of the K-9 I could be
I see other dogs in the park fetching sticks and digging bones
Never has a tin dog ever felt so alone
Oh no

And I wonder what life would be like if
I could choose not to say affirmitive
People tell me what to do and I just roll along
But inside my metal head I'm singing my song

Treacherous compliance, what have you done to me?
I'm a fraction of the shadow of the K-9 I should be
I see other dogs in the park, they're fetching sticks and digging bones
Never has a tin dog ever felt so alone
Oh no
