The Lyrics

Welcome to Peter Andersson's "One Week Notice" (Week 47): Here's a little tribute to the man, the myth, the legend... Benjamin Franklin!!
[History Teacher (spoken)]: "Okay class, Turn to page 35"

'Lectric kite, Soaked and his shoes squished
Lightning strike made currents flow
Let out a scream his britches were crisp
Shocking? His ears released smoke

'Lectric kite, 'Lectric kite
You think he flipped his lid with toys in flight
'Lectric kite, 'Lectric kite
He saw his name Ben Franklin flash in bright lights

George thought that he's slightly batty
Getting drenched out in the rain
Whores called this Founding Father their "Daddy"
Dig his bifocals and weight

Outta sight! Dynamite!
That lightning rod was his design
Whatta mind! Well-defined!
U.S. Constitution they saw him sign

Highest heights! ’Lectric kite!
Flocked to that wall plug when your phone died
Let‘s spotlight: ‘Lectric kite!
Filled up history books, Take a look inside!

. . .is this like the high intellect version of "'Murica"? Very interesting way to make it fit. . .Benjamin Franklin would be intrigued.

From what I've heard about Benny F you could probably have filled up another two loops of this song with more original material.

Peter - Yeah... I wish I knew more about this man but I didn't have much time to research him before I wrote the parody.

I listened to a lot of podcasts in my car during my recent trip to the family. In one of them (the latest episode of the Tim Ferriss Show) a book about Ben Franklin was mentioned as being a great biography. And there was a short talk about him and why. For anyone interrested there's a link in the shownotes:
