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, hey hey,
Just a scientist, mmm mmm, just a scientist, that's all.
Now, all the games are won by big and brawny half-backs
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 Doctor Werner von Braun
Cause he's just a scientist, yeah, just 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 that polio shot
Invented by Dr. Salk,
Cause he's just a scientist, oh yeah, he's just a scientist
Just a scientist, just a scientist, just a scientist, that's all.
