When you're in the dark and you want to see
You need, uh . . . electricity, electricity
Flip that switch and what do you get?
You get, uh . . . electricity, electricity
Every room can now be lit
With just, uh . . . electricity, electricity

Where do you think it all comes from
This powerful . . . electricity, electricity
Through high wires to here it comes
They're bringing, uh . . . electricity, electricity

Every building must be wired to use it
Uh . . . electricity, electricity
Power plants most all use fire to make it
Uh . . . electricity, electricity

Burning fuel and using steam,
They generate . . . electricity, electricity
Turn that generator by any means
You're making, uh . . . electricity, electricity!

A generator is a machine that contains a powerful magnet that creates a magnetic field. When wires are rotated rapidly through this field, then a current of electricity is produced.

Now, if we only had a superhero who could stand here and turn the generator real fast, then we wouldn't need to burn so much fuel to make . . . electricity

Benjamin Franklin flying his kite
Was searching for . . . electricity, electricity
He knew that it had something to do with lightning
It's all, uh . . . electricity, electricity

Rubbing a comb with wool or fur will give you a charge of electricity, (static) electricity
Stroking a cat to make it purr, you're building up static electricity, electricity

Electricity at rest is called static electricity
Like in the winter, wearing a heavy coat
You get a shock off the doorknob
Or you scrape across a carpet
And sneak up on your very best friend
And zap him on the ear with a shock of -
Electricity, electricity

Current flowing to and fro, makes a circuit of
Electricity, electricity
Voltage is the pressure that makes it go.
It's pushing, uh . . . electricity, electricity

Watts will tell you just how much
You'll be using
Uh . . . electricity, electricity

Powerful stuff, so watch that plug!
It's potent
Electricity, electricity
Electricity, electricity
