1, 2, 3 A song about 'lectricity
because it powers our lives
makes it possible for us to thrive

because it powers our lives
makes it possible for us to thrive

Oh, 4, 5, 6, volts of potential difference
makes electrons go round
if the circuit is complete and sound

Circuit's closed
Voltage There
Current Flows
Power Everywhere

We use AC,
in factories
and homes because we can transform it
High voltage
transmits with lower loss
but low voltage is best for safety
I said what is electricity?

Well, so 1,2,3 a song about 'lectricty
because it powers our lives
makes it possible for us to thrive

because it powers our lives

Heat makes steam
turns turbines
and a magnet in
