In your question title you said focus and not click.  In that case:

<input type="text" onfocus="javascript:alert('Message');">

However that will be very annoying.

<script type="text/javascript">
var messageShown = false;

function focusMessage() {
    if (!messageShown) {
           alert('Message');
           messageShown = true;
    }
}
</script>

<input type="text" onfocus="focusMessage()">

Would be better as it only will show the message once per page load.

the requirement for the project is that when they focus the text box.. every time they focus it it has to popup a disclaimer...

Build what they want but I wouldn't be surprised if they later changed their mind.
