About Albert Flasher

"Albert Flasher" is a song written by Burton Cummings and performed by The Guess Who. Initially released as a single in 1971 (with Broken on the B-side), it did not appear on any of their studio albums at that time.

It was, however, to appear on many of their later compilation albums including the 1973 release "The Best of the Guess Who, Volume II" and the 1973 compilation EP titled "The Guess Who". It was also part of many live shows such as the performance captured in "Live at the Paramount" (1972).

I was a workshop owner in the gulch for the people
And I offered myself to the world
I was a workshop owner
I was a workshop owner

I was a diesel fixer, fixed a diesel, diesel fixed me
What a weasel
And baby was a workshop owner
Baby was a workshop owner

Baby and me were ripe for the pickin'
That was the day we ran into Albert Flasher

It was a cold, snowy, rainy afternoon
And we were sittin' there in high school, my school
And Michael was a moonbeam maker
And Michael was a moonbeam maker

I was a diesel fixer, fixed a diesel, diesel fixed me
What a weasel, oh no
Baby was a workshop owner
Baby was a workshop owner

Baby and me were ripe for the pickin'
That was the day we ran into Albert Flasher

I was a workshop owner in the gulch for the people
And I offered myself to the world
I was a workshop owner
I was a workshop owner
I was a workshop owner
