The Lyrics

Work, you blasted thing, WORK!
Why is this still not workin'?
This can't be real, nothin's been severed, thrice, I've checked
This might seem mad, but I must ask
This directly to you

At this for days
It's consumed my whole damn work space
Bastard, I thought you would be good, please
Solve problems forever
Ooh-ooh, it has not turned out
To be that way, I've found out
And now my fingers hurt
From turnin' you on and off again
Goin' back to my blueprints, man, this sucks
My best laid plans have, once again, gone wrong
It's bollocks, did I forget to plug
This wi-ire into socket three?

Why won't you make a spark?
Why won't you come to life?
Wish that I could go on without you
That would be wrong of me (would be wrong of me)
This is my whole life (my whole life)
Why won't you make a spark (why won't you make a spark, asshole)?
Why won't you come to life (come on, won't you come to life)?
All that (asshole) I want (no, no) is to astound dudes (to astound dudes)
Can't do that properly if you don't work right

As time goes by
My frustration's growin'
But I'm not some quitter
Jerk, I'll get you to go, trust me, trust me (ooh-ooh)
Cause I (ooh, I) cannot delay (can't delay)
My plans for you, I won't (I just won't)
Put those in the can
You jerk, why won't your lights glow (all those lights need to glow, because)?
Where did I put my (my) screwdriver, bud (bud)?
Screws tight as crap (crap), they need to be undone (cause I've got)
I've got this inklin' that if I scrub (if I scrub)
Each component so thoroughly then you will work for me

Why won't you make a spark?
Why won't you come to life (come to life)?
Bags 'neath my eyes (right 'neath my eyes), can't work around you (I can't work around you, jerk)
Not doin' much for me (won't do much for me, asshole)
So I'll work all night
Why won't you make a spark?
Why won't you come to life (why won't you come to life)?
Spent my whole life (life) talkin' about you (talkin' about you)
Folks expect much of me, I can't fail, that's right (why won't you make a spark?)

Won't you make a spark (I hate, I hate)
Jerk, why won't you come to life? (you now, that's no lie)
I swear (oh, I, oh, I, geez, I swear, lots of damn swears)
Won't you make a spark (I hate you that's right)
Jerk, why won't you come to life? (you now, you won't come round)

Why won't you make a spark (oh, what the hell'd I do to you)?
Why won't you come to life (asides from all the zaps, I've always been so nice to you)?
Cause how will I (cause I need you, right)
Base my plans round you (to control the world, need you (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh))?
I've got a globe to seize (want to rule the whole word)
Hard when you won't rise (rise up, you jerk)
Why won't you make a spark (start livin', start livin', start livin', start livin', start livin')?
Why won't you come (fight my wars) to life (be so strong)?
"A god am I" what I would shout, dude (I would start laughin' (crazy), evilly laughin')
If you would start for me (oh, I'll hit you)
But right there, you lie (I need you to just move just slightly)
Why won't you make a spark (nothin's been severed, dude, I've checked it)?
Why won't you come to life (I wish that you'd respond, it's true, I don't seem clever when I'm thinkin' of that)?
Some ask how I (a lot) made plans around you (doesn't seem clever, oh-oh-oh)
You're a toaster, but see (just a damn toaster)
They don't know my mind (morons, ah-ah-ah-ah-ah)
Why won't you make a spark?
Why won't you come to life?
Question that I always must ask you

God, I hate ballads. So much singing over the top of lines that are already over the top of other lines, such a pain in the ass. Thank God that Monday's shuffle-selected song will be a hell of a lot easier (even if I'll have a bit of trouble coming up with something unique, but that's what the weekend's for)...
