The Lyrics

I freakin' hate power outages... If they ever happen to me I just hop in my Delorean and go back to a time when I had power.
A power outage makes me furious man
You can't watch TV, You can't even cook flan
Room is dark and you'll crash into stuff
Sure ain't appealing when the power is snuffed

Pull out the candles make them gleam
Blackouts and darkness makes it so hard to see
Grab a torch of wood, Need to get some light
Power outage you really freakin' bite!

It's caused by lightning, Lots of rain
When the wind's blowing hard, It's a hurricane
It's gone without warning and it screws your night
Time to try the Amish life
Cause the power is lost... Cause the power is lost

Hate when it happens I get pretty bored
Power is absent those are useless cords
While I adore music, There's no sound
Cause my speakers need power to pound

Cause poles are breaking when cars crashed
That stinkin' circuit board's tossed in the trash
If streets there are flooded you can kiss lights goodbye
This is everybody's strife

You might be falling down the stairs
Or bump into chairs
Because your fuses blew (Your fuses blew)
Your A/C's flown the coop (flown the coop)
It's making you feel so hot and cross
Because the power is lost
Because the power is lost
No Internet!

When things aren't running, It's such a pain
Cell phone cannot be charged, Power is drained
Whip out your flashlight or some flint and steel
You'll spill into somethin' then you'll squeal

We lost the power, Yes the power is lost
Cut the power, Yes the power is cut
Hate when the power is gone
Hate when the power's shut off
Damn the power is lost!

(Artistry) Another creative and refreshing topic choice! There's something about Huey Lewis that bring about a lot of creativity. Many funny lines and great rhymes to utterly entertain.

(Artistry) It's hilarious when the power cuts out when there's multiple people in the house. It's half a second of silence then everyone starts complaining or yelling. Fantastic parody, 555 candles!
