A look at history reveals
Slowly turning wheels
'til we put some steam
Into our energy

Thomas Edison then
said hallelujia amen
and wired us all for electricity

'long came a moving machine
that fed on gasoline
and our travel plans all turned to fancy free

our cities blazed with light
it was our new birthright
to have more energy consuming gadgetry

but soon those carefree days
took on a troubling haze
'cause of the energy spending habits we embraced

our houses leaked their heat
our light bulbs really eat
that electricity that we so often waste

the way we mobilize
is really quite unwise
it's a costly way to get from A to B

when we're behind the wheel
in our own automobile
we're on an energy spending spree

time to change
time to lower our demand
before those greenhouse gases
get out of hand

efficiency is comin' in style

switching off will save you a pile

choosing the light
with a small appetite
to be energy hip
you've got to weatherstrip

efficiency is doing it smart

double the use when you make that juice

talkin' 'bout cogeneration
talkin' 'bout cogeneration

your savings will jump
when you use a heat pump

the energy key
is efficiency
