​Electricity, Electricity

This song is by Zachary Sanders and appears on the compilation Schoolhouse Rock: Science Rock (1997).

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

Burnin' fuel and usin' 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 searchin' for... Electricity, Electricity
He knew that it had somethin' to do with lightnin'
It's all uh... Electricity, Electricity

Rubbin' a comb with wool or fur will give you a charge of
Electricity (static) Electricity

Strokin' a cat to make it purr, you're buildin' 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 'I'm 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 pushin' uh... Electricity, Electricity...

Watts will tell you just how much
You'll be usin'
Uh... Electricity, Electricity

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