He don't play football golf or guitar he's never been on Sullivan Clark or Paar
He's just not important cause he ain't a star he's just a scientist
Oh oh just a scientist yeah yeah just a scientist uhhuh just a scientist that's all
Now all the games are won by big and brawny halfbacks
And marshals find the rustlers by their horse's tracks
But who is gonna get us to the moon and back
He'll be a scientist hey hey just a scientist oh yeah just a scientist
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 yeah yes a scientist
Just a scientist just a scientist that's all
Now all that we remember is that Cadillac that knocked us out and made us gawk
We done forgot about the polio shot invented by Dr Salk
Cause he's just a scientist oh yeah he's just a scientist
Yeah yeah just a scientist just a scientist that's all
