Sources of Energy
Science Song Lyrics and Sound Clip
J.P. Taylor

    
This song is available on J.P. Taylor's Singin' Songs of Science 3.

From human energy and fire through water and wind power, coal and petroleum, solar and nuclear, this song presents not just the sources, but the history and evolution of energy sources.

Potential energy is energy that’s ready to use
And kinetic energy is energy that’s being used
All kinds of energy, from the past on to the future
Here’s a history of energy, for me and you

In the beginning man used human energy to get things done
And energy from a fire to cook his food and keep him warm
All kinds of energy, from the past on to the future
It’s a history of energy, for me and you

(Chorus)
Sources of energy - it comes from the sun
Sources of energy - wind and water are some
Sources of energy - electricity, too
Sources of energy - there’s a lot it can do
Whoa, energy, Energy

Then people found they could use the energy in moving water and wind
They’d take corn to the mill, and then the grinding would begin
And they’d pump their water up whenever that ol’ wind blew
It’s a history of energy, for me and you

When the supply of wood got low they started burning coal
And pollution got its start, as factories began to grow
Then came the steam engine, The Industrial Revolution
It’s a history of energy, for me and you

(Chorus)

Then Thomas Edison and other guys made electric lights
Making the generators spin around lighting up the night
Then came the oil rush, that magical fossil fuel
It’s a history of energy, for me and you

And now we’re up to today where we have nuclear power, too
But even with all of these, we’ve got to be careful it’s true
Got to save our energy so there’s enough for the future
It’s a history of energy, for me and you

(Chorus)
