getting started with WolframAlpha? - [SOLVED]

I was wondering how to get the WolframAlpha service started because I was interested in somehow incorporating it into the InMoov robot I am making. I can manually query a result in the gui but I cannot get the text that shows up to store as a string or appear in the python environment.

answer = wolfram.wolframAlpha("Who wrote Stairway to Heaven?")
