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.

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