Electricity lyrics

[alert_box type=”info”]Originally appeared on Safe As Milk[/alert_box]

Singin through you to me
Thunder-bolts caught easily
Shouts the truth peacefully
E-LEC-TRI-CITY

High-voltage man kisses
night to bring the light
to those who need
t’ hide their shadow deed

Go into bright, find
the light and know
that friends don’t mind
just how you grow

Bearded cowboy stains in black
and reads dark roads
without a map
seeking:
electricity, E-LEC-TRI-CITY

Light-house beacon straight
ahead, straight ahead
across blank seas to free
seeking:
electricity, E-LEC-TRI-CITY

High-voltage man kisses
night to bring the light
to those who need
t’ hide their shadow-deed
hide their shadow-deed (repeat)
Seek electricity………..

(1967)

  1. It is “bearded cowboy,” not “midnight cowboy”

    1. Yes, quite right. It’s been corrected.
