(Doo dee doo dee doo dee doo)
(Doo dee doo dee doo dee doo)

He don't play football, golf, or guitar
He's never been on Bandstand, Sullivan, or Parr
He's just not important, 'cause he ain't a star

(He's just a scientist)
He just fools around with bottles and tubes
(He's just a scientist)
He's so square, he's a cube
(He's just a scientist)
Big thick glasses
And he's bald
(He's just a scientist)
Ah that's all

All the games are won by big and brawny half-backs
And marshals find out rustlers by their horses' tracks
But who's gonna get us to the moon and back?

(He'll be a scientist)
I think it's inhumane
(Hey, just a scientist)
Sendin' those poor little monkeys up in that thing
(Yeah, just a scientist)
I think there oughta be a law
There oughta be a law
(He's just a scientist)
That's all

Everybody's flippin' over Fabian

Or Frankie Avalon
But nobody ever seems to give a flip
Over Dr. Werner von Braun

('cause he's just a scientist)
He's nobody's fool
(He's just a scientist)
Workin' on that slide rule
(He's just a scientist)
He's big and tall
(He's just a scientist)
Ah that's all

Now all that we remember is a Thunderbird
That knocked us out and made us go
But we done forgot about the polio shot
Invented by Dr. Salk

('cause he's just a scientist)
That's somethin I've got to get
(He's just a scientist)
I ain't got mine yet, either
(He's just a scientist)
But I guess we can wait till fall
(He's just a scientist)
Ah that's all

(Doo dee doo dee doo dee doo)

He's just a scientist

(Doo dee doo dee doo dee doo)

He's just a scientist

(Repeat and fade)
