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 and space and relativity
Is something that makes it very clear he
Was never gonna score like you and me

He didn't know about
Quark, strangeness and charm
Quark, strangeness and charm
Quark, strangeness and charm
Quark, strangeness and charm

II had a dangerous liaison
To be found out would've been a disgrace
We had to rendezvous some days on
The corner of an undiscovered place
We got sick of chat chat chatter
And the look upon everybody's face
But all that does not not anti-matter now
We've found ourselves a black hole in space

And we're talking about
Quark, strangeness and charm
Quark, strangeness and charm
Quark, strangeness and charm
Quark, strangeness and charm

Copernicus 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

Quark, strangeness and charm
Quark, strangeness and charm
Quark, strangeness and charm
Quark, strangeness and charm


Live version (1986 release)

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 and space and relativity
Is something that makes it very clear he
Was never gonna score like you and me

Didn't know about
Quark, strangeness and charm
Quark, strangeness and charm
Quark, strangeness and charm
Quark, strangeness and charm

I had a dangerous liaison
To be found out would've been a disgrace
We had to rendezvous some days on
The corner of an undiscovered place
We got sick of chat chat chatter
And the look upon everybody's face
All that doesn't anti-matter now
We've found ourselves a black hole out in space

And talk about
Quark, strangeness and charm
Quark, strangeness and charm
Quark, strangeness and charm
Quark, strangeness and charm

Here it comes it goes quark quark
Quark now
It goes quark-quark-quark-quark
