Turn Off The Lights

Lyrics

Mom was angry when she got home from work today

To a four billion kilowatt lighting display

Every bulb in the house was burning bright

And I was playing outside, nowhere in sight. She said:

 

Turn off the lights when you go outside

Turn off the light when you go for a bike ride

Turn off the lights, just do what’s right

Save electricity and turn off the lights

 

When Dad got home he heard the news and he said to me:

Electricity costs money son, can’t you see

If the lights are on when you’re in the room

When you leave just flip the switch, it’s easy to do

 

My science teacher said that we burn coal to make power

Black smoke pollutes the air and acid rain makes rivers sour

If we use less power then we’ll burn less coal

Global warming will slow down and cleaner water will flow

 

So turn off the lights when you go outside

Turn off the lights when you go for a bike ride

Turn off the lights when you go to school

Turn off the lights when you go to the swimming pool

 

Turn off the lights when you leave the room

Turn off the lights, it’s never too soon

To turn off the lights, to turn off the lights

Just save electricity and turn off the lights
