Quark, Strangeness and Charm

Einstein was not a handsome fellow

Nobody ever called him Al

He had a long moustache to pull on
It was yellow

I don't believe he ever had a girl

One thing he missed out in his theory
Of time`n space and relativity

Is something that makes it very clear

He was never gonna score like you'n'me

He didn't know about
Quark, Strangeness
& Charm

I had a dangerous liaison
To have been found out
would've been a disgrace

We had to rendezvous somedays on

the corner of an undiscovered place

We got sick of the chat chat chatter

and the look upon everybody's face

But all that does not anti-matter

Now we've found ourselves
a black hole in space

And we're talking about

Quark, Strangeness
& Charm

Quark, Strangeness and Charm


had those Renaissance ladies

Crazy about his telescope
And Galileo
had a name that made his

Reputation higher than his hopes
Did none of those astronomers discover

While they were staring out into the dark

That what a lady looks for in her lover
Is Charm, Strangeness and Quark
