Sparks

Sparks is an American rock and pop band formed in Los Angeles in 1971 by brothers Ron (keyboards) and Russell Mael (vocals), renamed from Halfnelson. Best known for their quirky approach to songwriting, Sparks' music is often accompanied by intelligent, sophisticated, and acerbic lyrics, and an idiosyncratic, theatrical stage presence, typified in the contrast between Russell's wide-eyed hyperactive frontman antics and Ron's sedentary scowling. They are also noted for Russell Mael's falsetto voice and Ron Mael's keyboard style. more »

Albert is smart, he's a genius
Watch Albert putter, an obvious genius
Someday he will reassess 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 away)
Everythings relative
(Go away Albert mother said to me)
We're Albert's relatives, and he don't need any non-relatives

Talent is an asset, you've got to understand that
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 his genius things
Look at Albert isn't he a sight
Growing, growing at the speed of light. 

(Go away)
Everythings relative
(Go away Albert mother said to me)
We're Albert's relatives, and he don't need any non-relatives

Talent is an asset and little albert has it

(go away)
Talent is relative (go away)
That's hypothetical (go away)
We are his relatives (go away)
That's parenthetical (go away)
Spare your superlatives (go away)
There's the receptacle (go away)
There's the receptacle (go away)

leave Alberts study room (go away)
Leave alberts happy home (go away)
Leave alberts neighrbourhood (go away)
Leave alberts city too (go away)
Leave alberts comfy seat (go away)
Leave alberts country (go away)
Leave alberts continent (go away)
Leave alberts hemisphere (go away)
Leave alberts planet too (go away)
Leave alberts universe (go away)

No one must see him now (go away)
Only the medical (go away)
No one must come near him (go away)
Don't be too cynical (go away)
Don't be too critical (go away)
Cancel the magazines (go away)
They're much too political (go away)
Don't buy him any jeans (go away)
They're much too casual (go away)
Talent is relative (go away)
That's hypothetical...
