Difference b/w getText() and getAttribute() in Selenium WebDriver?

Both are used to get the WebElement value in between tags?
Kindly update whether my assumption is right. If wrong please elaborate it.

Answer Source
<input attr1='a' attr2='b' attr3='c'>foo</input>

getAttribute(attr1) you get 'a'

getAttribute(attr2) you get 'b'

getAttribute(attr3) you get 'c'

getText() with no parameter you can only get 'foo'
