Monáe, Janelle - Dirty Computer Lyrics




Dirty computer, walk in line
If you look closer you'll recognize
I'm not that special
I'm broke inside
Crashing slowly, the bugs are in me

Dirty computer, breaking down
Picking my face up off the ground
I'll love you in this space and time
'Cause baby all I'll ever be is

Your dirty computer
Dirty computer

Searching for someone to fix my life
Text message, god up in the sky
Oh, if you love me, won't you please reply?
Oh, can't you see that it's only me, your dirty computer?

Dirty computer
Your dirty computer
Dirty computer

I'll love you in this space and time
I'll love you in this space and time

  1. Colorado Claye

    This deserves an AWARD , still relevant twentyTwenty

  2. Madison D

    this album holds a special place in my heart ❤️❤️

  3. ALuraShaneé

    This!!!! I REALLY PRAY(to the God that I believe in) that the WORLD IS STIRRED(TABLES SHAKING) by what this Woman has produced. This is EXACTLY what she intended(at least for me), an EMOTION Picture... Damn.. I hope that Jane and Cindi Mayweather meet paths in an alternate World, and KILL Patriarchy, Misogyny, Bigotry, and Hate.. just n interaction with her.. I Love her ALMOST as much as I’ve Loved my ,”
    mom. LoL Janelle Monae is a female “Prince,”
    So, that makes her talent UNATTAINABLE. AMAZING.

  4. Theresa Rose

    So sad, Blessings to you ✝️🌹

  5. Katarina Giselle

    Omg...how did I not know she turned her album into a movie?! I’m in love even more now..she is a queen! So talented in even more ways than I previously new! She is so amazing live, and now that I am seeing all the music videos connected together and out together into a movie with scenes..I am amazed. She needs her own Netflix show for real..something futuristic!

  75. Vickie Pollard

    I like that

  76. Abi

    Bad. Ass. There was so much work put into this masterpiece.

  77. Cameron

    I wish Prince had of seen this. I wish Prince was alive to experience Janelle Monae. I think he would have collaborated with her .

    ScabbedWings

    Just in case you haven't researched her by now, he was her mentor. He was the first person that she had listen to her completed "The Archandroid" album. Listen to "Givin' Em What They Love" on her "The Electric Lady" album for a collaboration.

  78. unlawfulkumquat

    Holy fucking shit.
    Wow.

  79. Christian M. Franklin

    This was fascinating... I’m in love with this project. Wow...just wow...

  82. salsa

    We love both dirty computer and K-12 and done bring down other females

  83. Collin H

    Dirty Computer > K-12

  84. Lipstick Chateau Wine Color

    How does she not have more fans? More acknowledgment? She is legit better than 99% of the current pop artists. Fuck I really hate the music industry.

  85. Lipstick Chateau Wine Color

    Literally one of the best albums I have listened to.

  86. TYHJK〈L〉

    I haven't been sleeping much. Maybe 1 - 2 hours a day. 22 hours ago I found this video. It's been helping me find my center. But because I haven't slept much, this feels like an echo from my past. Like it was from so long ago. Even sometimes feels like this was found a week ago. But it's not been long at all. I couldn't have realized how much I needed this.

  87. Aero J

    I wanna get used to this

  88. TYHJK〈L〉

    I was going through Youtube videos recommended to me. I found v=CekbqdmY1dM which ended up bringing me to Screwed, then here.
    I can definitely say that this night has been the most uplifting in a long time. I think I'm not sure who I am anymore, but there have been some things that have been opening my eyes. This has been an experience that I hope sticks with me.

  89. Isaac Garrett

    "may be inappropriate" seriously??? youtube stop censoring gay content I swear to god

  90. Shanita Hollins

    This is what they killed prince and Michael Jackson for...any rebellion free spirit must go...including her..or doesn't get recognized for her greatness

  91. Kayla Wright

    My favorite part 39:10

  92. K Smith

    She is so fuckin Badd!!!🔥🔥🔥

  93. سايوري رايت

    بصراحة أزبل منك ياجانيل والأفكار القذرة اللي ترويجي لها والمثلية الإزدواجية والماسونية اللي أنتي فيها غير معقولة 😑باالرغم من أنك فنانة بديعة إلا أنه يبالك باالشبشب الشرقي لأنك جرارة كبيرة بجدارة😤

  94. Nickoy Park

    Such a masterpiece!

  95. THE WAR WORLD

    There's a Computer Cybernetic Era coming and the Agenda is moving Fast Janelle Monáe is Warning us of what's to come.

  96. Max Sarkodie

    I think Janelle isn't as famous as she should be because she is way ahead of our time

  97. Rosgirl 57

    This is honestly incredible, i’ve never been so blown away by something.

  98. Sterling Jafar

    Good entertainment!

  99. Kimberly J
