HEY GENIUS Scott Seattle Zoo Scott Seattle Zoo
     Hey genius  
     We opened your door 
     There were mountains of laundry 
     All over the floor 
     You're a genius  
     Or so you propose 
     You wear your cap backwards 
     And old funky clothes 

One day they'll know the depths of your crystal mind 
Someday they'll find the steps you leave us behind  
One day they'll see the wisdom in your mad rhyme  
We hereby certify you are a genius  

     Hey genius  
     There's nothing to prove 
     You can read us James Joyce 
     Disapprove of the Louvre 
     You're a genius  
     Or so you confess 
     You say you can beat 
     Your computer at chess        

One day they'll know the depths of your crystal mind  
Someday they'll find the steps you leave us behind 
One day they'll see the wisdom in your mad rhyme 
We hereby certify you are a genius 

     Air is thick with tension 
     Claims they left him high and dry 
     Marshal more attention 
     For a complicated guy 

     Hey genius  
     You've earned your goatee 
     Proclaiming that god's 
     Barking up the wrong tree  
     Big fat apple  
     Fell onto your head 
     If you miss with your arrow  
     Will you go back to bed? 

One day they'll know the depths of your crystal mind          
Someday they'll find the steps you leave us behind  
One day they'll see the wisdom in your mad rhyme 
Must be the reason why you take your sweet time 
Must be the reason why you take your sweet time 
Must be the reason why 
Must be the reason why 
Must be the reason why 
You know the reason
