Albert the Architect
A man was born in switzerland
And decided to study architectect
He moved to the western
Where he wanted to start some fixtures
Albert Frey was his name
He settled in the cali area
Palm springs was a very dry area
He still set up his own frame
He even gave it a name
The Frey house two
It made the hall of fame
And changed the world's view
Years later he ended up passing away
He was known for his desert modernism
And his expansionism
Rest in peace albert freyre...
