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
Every building must be wired to use it,
Power plants most all use fire to make it,
Burnin' fuel and usin' steam,
Turn that generator by any means,
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
Rubbin' a comb with wool or fur will give you a charge of
Strokin' a cat to make it purr, you're buildin' up static
Electricity at rest is called static electricity.
Current flowing to and fro, makes a circuit of
Watts will tell you just how much
Powerful stuff, so watch that plug! It's potent
