"Talent is an Asset;" Sparks

Albert is smart, he's a genius
Watch Albert putter, an obvious
Genius

Someday he will reasess the world
And he'll still have time for lots of girls

When he grows up, he'll remember us
When he grows up, we are sure that he'll
Remember us

We made sure that Albert wore his mac
We kept all the strangers off his back

(Go 'way)
Talent is relative
(Go 'way)
We are his relatives
(Albert's mother say to me)
And he don't need any non-relatives

Talent is an asset, you've got to understand it
Talent is an asset, and little Albert has it
Talent is an asset, and Albert surely has it

One day, he'll sever his apron strings
All of the while he'll be scribbling things
Genius things

Look at Albert, isn't he a sight
Growing, growing at the speed of light

(Go 'way)
Talent is relative
(Go 'way)
We are his relatives
(Albert's mother say to me)
And he don't need any non-relatives

Talent is an asset, and Albert surely has it

Talent is relative
That's hypothetical
We are his relatives
That's parenthetical
Spare the superlatives
There's the receptacle
There's the receptacle

Leave Albert's study room
Leave Albert's happy home
Leave Albert's neighborhood
Leave Albert's city, too
Leave Albert's county seat
Leave Albert's coun-ter-y
Leave Albert's continent
Leave Albert's hemisphere
Leave Albert's planet, too
Leave Albert's universe
No one must see him now
Only the medical
No one must downgrade him
Don't be too cynical
Don't be too critical
Cancel the magazines
They're much too political
Don't buy him any jeans
They're much too fashionable
Talent is relative
That's hypothetical
We are his relatives
That's parenthetical


Interpret this however you want.
