The Lyrics

I woke up in the evenin,
the power's off, oh man no way
I guess I'll wait till the morning,
and see on the news, what George Bush will say
The power grid is too tired,
the coal fired plants are on the shelf
conserve your power, utilities need just a little help
you must cook with fire,
go give the barbeque a spark
situation is dire,
I even heard Lansing's in the dark

I am such a high user,
a.c.'s on every day and every night
I pay, it makes me a chooser
wanna cool my room, my hall, my place
man, I wanna get somewhere
I'm living in a dump like this
somebody has a.c. somewhere
and I want to feel all friz
you must cook with fire,
go give the barbeque a spark
situation is dire,
I even heard Lansing's in the dark

I even heard down in Motown,
there's a joke somewhere, it's on G.M.
I guess now they can call it "blown-town"
with no power, the laugh's on them

out on the streets of this town,
as the traffic lights are out
I'm just watchin some drivers,
without a clue, smashing about
I seen a bad collision,
I'm sick of seein these folks cook
I'm on a voltage mission
what I know about power came from a book
you must cook with fire,
go give the barbeque a spark
situation is dire,
I even heard Lansing's in the dark
