The Lyrics

Power to the People!
Workin' the job there on construction sites
The dumbest fool that ever wired lights
Couldn't tell his colors or blacks from whites
When near the power he gave folks the frights
‘Lectric, 'lectric socket
Something you ought to fear

No one knew where our idiot was found
No electrician that has been around
E'er looks up when he should look down
Or stands in a puddle (One real good ground)
‘Lectric, 'lectric socket
Gettin' a charge in here

Somone should have told him what current does
Stick your finger in there, you'll get a buzz
Now there will be skin where once grew some fuzz
Now he's referred to as “somone who was”
‘Lectric, 'lectric socket
Smoke comin' out his ear

Here is the moral for all of you concerned
Your place in heaven should be smartly earned
Now he is gone and a good lesson learned
Watch where you pee and you might not get burned
‘Lectric, 'lectric socket
Don't mix your work with beer
