SHE'S MY EVER LOVIN' MACHINE (Shel Silverstein) Shel Silverstein - 1965 Bobby Bare - 1973 Well friends you know once I was took in By a girl with a twinkly eye But the first time that I wasn't lookin' She run off with a handsomer guy, oh my But I'm an inventin' type feller So as soon as my brain got uncurled I tiptoed right down to my cellar And built a mechanical girl Oh, her arms are iron, her legs are steel Her hips are on wires attached to a wheel And her spine is a coil that I now and then oil She's my ever lovin' machine She's always right there when I need her And she's very easy to please And hardly cost nothin' to feed her Just some water and oil and grease She never complains when I stay out all night She never complains that I ain't rich And each time I want her just to cuddle me up tight I just reach out and turn on her switch Oh, her arms are iron, her legs are steel Her hips are on wires attached to a wheel And her spine is a coil that I now and then oil She's my ever lovin' machine She has no trouble making her mind up 'Cause friends I did not give her a mind And her heart is a clock that I wind up So I know that she'll love me in time She always did what she was s'posed to Right up to this evening, but then She had an affair with the toaster And they run off and left me again Oh, her arms was iron her legs was steel Her hips were on wires attached to a wheel And her spine was a coil that I used to oil She was my ever lovin' machine **Shel Silverstein's recording contains this extra verse: My love is completely electric And she gives me a shock with each hug And when the romance gets too hectic I simply pull out the plug (Transcribed from the Bobby Bare recording by Mel Priddle - Jan 2011)
