"A Little Brains A Little Talent" as written by and Jerry Ross Richard Adler....
I took the zing
out of the king of Siam
I took the starch
out of the sails
of the prince of wales
It's no great art
Getting the heart of a man
On a silver platter
A little brains
A little talent
With an emphasis on the latter
I made mince meat
Out of a sweet young farmer
I knocked the fight
out of a knight
When I pierced his armor
And I'll bet
I could have set every
Male in a Yale Regatta
A little brains
A little talent
With an emphasis on the latter
You've got to know
Just what to say
And how to say it
You've got to know
What game to play
And how to play it
You've got to stack those decks
With a couple of extra aces
and this Queen has her aces
In all the right places
I didn't know much more
Than that old bore
Till I learned
I took the curl
out of the hair
Of a millionaire
There is no trick
Getting some hick
That's cool
Just a little warmer
A little talent
A little brains
With an emphasis on the former
You've got to know
Just what to do
And how to do it
You have to know
Which tea to brew
And how to brew it
