HE'S JUST A SCIENTIST
(That's All)

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
He's just a scientist
He's just a scientist
He's 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, just a scientist
Yeah, just a scientist
He's just a scientist
That's all

Ev'rybody'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
He's just a scientist ...

Now, twenty thousand
Million, billion years from now
Probably your bony fossil will be found
And who will be a-diggin' you out of the ground
He's just a scientist ...

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...
