"Electricity, Electricity" is a song in Schoolhouse Rock!, which can be seen in Science Rock. The song teaches listeners about electricity.

The Schoolhouse Rock! Rocks cover by Goodness has the only music video to have any live-action clips, particularly by the band. Although Pearl Jam's Mike McReady participates, he does not appear in the video.


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


  • The song is sung by Zachary Sanders and shows a superhero; however, it is not Verb. (Verb would be an obvious "callback" choice.)
