  • Song Lyrics:
    Well, I'm not the brightest crayon in the box
    Everyone says I'm dumber than a bag of rocks
    I barely even know how to put on my own pants
    But I'm a genius in France (yeah), genius in France, genius in France

    Hoom chaka laka
    Hoom chaka laka
    Hoom chaka

    I may not be the sharpest hunk of cheese
    I got a negative number on my SATs
    I'm not good looking and I don't know how to dance
    But nevertheless and in spite of the evidence I am still widely considered to be
    A genius in France, a genius in France, a genius in France

    People say I'm a geek, a moronic little freak
    An annoying pipsqueak with an unfortunate physique
    If I was any dumber, they'd have to water me twice a week

    But when the Mademoiselles see me, they all swoon and shriek
    They dig my mystique, they say I'm c'est magnifique
    When I'm in Par-ee, I'm the chic-est of the chic

    They love my body odor and my bad toupee
    They love my stripey shirt and my stupid beret
    And when I'm sipping on a Perrier
    In some cafe town in St. Tropez

    It's hard to keep the fans at bay
    They say, "Sign my poodle, s'il vous plait"
    "Sign my poodle, s'il vous plait"

    Hemenene humenene
    himenene homenene
    Poodle... poodle...

    Folks in my hometown think I'm a fool
    Got too much chlorine in my gene pool

    A few peas short of a casserole
    A few buttons missing on my remote control
    A few fries short of a happy meal
    I couldn't pour water out of a boot with instructions on the heel

    Instructions on the heel
    Instructions on the heel

    But when I'm in Provence, I get free croissants
    Yeah, I'm the guy every French lady wants
    And if you ask 'em why, you're bound to get this response
    (He's a genius in France! Genius in France!)

    That's right
    (He's a genius in France, genius in France)
    You know it
    (He's a genius in France, genius in France, genius in France)

    I'm not the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree
    But the folks in France, they don't seem to agree
    They say, "Bonjour, Monsieur would you take ze picture with me?"

    I say, "Oui, oui"
    That's right, I say, "Oui, oui"
    "Oui, oui"
    He says, "Oui, oui"

    I'm dumber than a box of hair
    But those Frenchies don't seem to care
    Don't know why, mon frere
    But they love me there

    I'm a genius in France
    Yeah, I'm a genius in France

    Gonna make a big splash when I show up in Cannes
    Gonna make those Frenchies scream
    "You ze man! You ze man! You ze man!"

    Like a fine Renoir (waa), I've got that je ne c'est quoi (quoi!)
    Like a fine Renoir (ooh la la), I've got that je ne c'est ...
    Quoi quoi quoi quoi quoi, oo-we-oo
    Quoi quoi quoi quoi quoi, oo-we-oo

    Bow diddy bow di bow di bow bow diddy
    Bow diddy bow di bow di bow bow diddy


    I'm a taco short of a combo plate
    But by some twist of fate, all the Frogs think I'm great
    Oh, the men all faint and the women scream
    They like me more than heavy cream

    When I'm in Versailles, I'm a popular guy
    My oh my, I'm as French as apple pie (apple pie)
    They think I'm awfully witty, a riot and a half
    When I tell a stupid joke, they laugh (haw haw haw haw haw)
    And laugh (haw haw haw haw haw haw)

    People in France have lots of attitude
    They're snotty and rude, they like disgusting food
    But when they see me, they just come unglued
    They think that I am one happening dude

    Bowm ba ba bowm ba bowm ba bowm
    I'm about as sharp as a bowling ball
    But they like me better than Charles de Gaulle

    Entre nous, it's very true
    The room temperature's higher than my IQ
    But they love me more than Gerard Depardieu
    How did this happen; I don't have a clue

    Well, I'm not the quickest tractor on the farm
    I don't have any skills or grace or charm
    And most people look at me like I'm all covered with ants
    But I'm a genius in France (yeah), genius in France, genius in France

    And I'm never goin' back, I'm never goin' back
    I'm never never never never goin' back home again
    I'm tearin' up my return flight ticket
    Gonna tell the folks back here where they can stick it

    'Cause I'm never goin' back
    I'm never goin' back
    I'm never goin' back

    The girls back home never gave me a chance
    But I sho' 'nuff got them Frogs in some kinda trance
    And I'm aware that it's a most improbable circumstance
    But "Great Googily Moogily!", I'm a genius in France

    Every Frenchie that I meet
    Just can't wait to kiss my feet
    Get in line, pucker up! Tout Suite!

    Bowm diddy bowm diddy bowm diddy

    I'm gettin' even more famous by the hour
    I'm stuffed with pastries and drunk with power
    Now they're puttin' up my statue by the Eiffel Tower

    A little more to the left, boys, a little more to the left
    A little more to the left, boys, a little more to the left

    I'm the biggest dork there is alive
    My mom picked out my clothes for me 'till I was 35
    And I forgot to mention
    I'm not even welcome at the Star Trek convention

    But the Frenchies think
    That my poop don't stink
    I'm a genius in France

    Say, would you pass the Grey Poupon?
    Merci beaucoup
    (Sonic SBL)
