Automatic Lyrics

Artist: Pointer Sisters
Album: Automatic

Look what you're doing to me
I'm utterly at your whim
All of my defenses down
Your camera looks through me
With its X-ray vision
And all systems run aground
All I can manage to push from my lips
Is a stream of absurdities
Every word I intended to speak
Wind up locked in the circuitry

No way to control it
It's totally automatic
Whenever you're around
I'm walking blindfolded
Completely automatic
All of my systems are down
Down down down

What is this madness
That makes my motor run
And my legs too weak to stand
I go from sadness
To exhilaration
Like a robot at your command
My hands perspire and shake like a leaf
Up and down goes my temperature
I summon doctors to get some relief
But they tell me there is no cure
They tell me

This song was used extensively throughout the 80's cartoon "Kidd Video"! Great song!

I stumped my friend who though these were guys. We back and forth with name that artist and I compleatly stumped him. I can't think of a better song. Ihis is the best song ever and its a shame when vh1 or mtv sellout type record producers say lets make a greatest hit record that this song is not on it. Alot of people try to cover songs and do a great job but this is a challenge!!!
by Roro22 on 10/25/2008 1:35pm
Dude this brings back memories of growing up Latino in Northside Corpus Christ and listening to great music from my friends parents, WORD this song is the lick!

How can you say thar cover is better? You should be ashamed. I turned it off after 10 seconds. It was nothing but raver club trash. Were you high when you wrote this? You suck on passifiers and fart rainbows dont you? That was horrible!!! Lay off the extacy...
by on 10/28/2008 3:41pm
I stand correcting myself. It is on a hits record but still has never done better by anyone. Remakes are rarely better and that rave cover sucked!!!

Whenever I heard this song I always imagined how I'd be living in some kind of cool Star Wars type futuristic world someday-but you it ain't a whole lot different now than in '83 (and this song is still coool)
by monreve on 10/16/2009 5:45pm

by gta on 10/27/2009 3:07pm

This makes me so hard.
by Markie Raye on 8/23/2010 3:27am
Hi Juanita. You are the first artiste I've seen say thanks to fans on a site like this. I just heard the song on a radio guess show where listeners are asked to call or text in the year they think it came out. I was all over this one but unlike the norm I had to cheat for the first time to look at the net to get the year. I know it was in the early 80's. It was '83. I loved it. Take care darling.
by Nene on 12/20/2010 11:53am
This one of the best 80's songs ever and still such a good dance song.
by omriK on 2/6/2011 9:59am
so its 3 girls....i could swere it was a dude singing this...wel must b that ultra nate cover..wich is not so bad but yes the words are gr8 even awsome and the song is short ..
by Esmonet Germanie Middles on 6/14/2011 10:54am
Remember these songs used to be love songs not just for a dance party. I think the women were just convincing as the men. Great Big Baddie song! It was so lovable!
by GBJ on 8/12/2011 2:53am
This song just always makes me think about sticking my uzi out my driver side window, and just drive by shooting tens of pedestrians. As soon as the chorus kicks in, just unloading bullets into people and swinging my corvette in wild circles!

In GrandTheftAuto Vice City I mean!
by Conrad Herring on 11/11/2011 10:59pm
Juanita, I absolutely love u for responding. I remember crushing on this girl named Misty who was over my cousins house one cold night in 1983 and Automatic had been on the radio in the car on the way over...(I was 13). The song was playing loud in my head as tried to get the nerve to talk to her. Whenever i hear this song I think of her. I also think of your performance of the song on American Bandstand when you assured Dick Clark that the song was all woman. I'm listening to the song right now!! Love it.
by C.H. on 11/11/2011 11:06pm
GBJ, I got to tell u man, I was like was the hell is wrong with sick $%@#, until i read the last line...then I was on the floor LMFAO. Thanks for the laugh, that was hilarious.
by D.D on 12/7/2011 1:13pm

by B.W.M on 12/19/2011 11:40am

by Kel on 2/14/2012 4:25pm
Loved it in the 80's. Love it still in 2012

by Brian Neuburg on 2/13/2013 4:42pm
If you it belongs 100,then it is only right
by Genell on 4/25/2013 2:00pm
Here it is 4-25-2013 and this song is still the jam!

Miss you babygirl June!

by Amy on 5/30/2013 4:50pm
This is one of the best songs of the 80's. thought about this song. Like this guy and feel just like this when I'm around him.
by S'Chalana on 7/14/2013 6:42pm
This song gets played at my work... one of the best 80's songs ever... besides Neutron Dance :)

GTA Vice City
by Gary T on 9/18/2013 2:19pm
You know when I was young I always imagined the cast of Star Wars singing this song for some reason. Then I do remember the Kid Video carton on NBC that played it. I know this was a Pointer Sister's song, but was the vocalist on this track male, or just a woman with a great bass voice?
by Musiclover on 10/14/2013 10:27pm
Hottest song ever.
