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 'im 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
