Song Video



We're gonna turn it on.
We're gonna bring you the power
We're gonna light up the dark of night like the brightest day in a whole new way
We're gonna turn it on we're gonna bring you the power
It's coming down the lines, strong as they can be
Through the courtesy of The Electric Company
The Electric Company.

The Electric Company!

Starting with the chorus, this version is a more complete version of the theme song

Moving on in a new way
Moving on in a new way.

We're going to turn it on,
Turn it on We going to bring you the power, in a new way.
We going to light up the dark with light like the brightest day in a whole new way.
We going to turn it on. do do doooo We going to bring you the power.
Doo doo doo doo
We going to tell you the truth with words that you ever heard anybody said.

Moving on in a new way.
Moving on in a new way.

We going to turn it on
We going to bring you the power.
We going to cut down the lines as thick as be to the courtesy,
Of the electric company.

If your a fan, you can add these extra lines in between the first verse and the bridge

We're gonna turn it on, we're gonna bring you the power.
We're gonna tell you the truest word that you ever heard anybody say.

The Electric Company was my favorite television show as a kid. Easy Reader was a big inspiration in me wanting to learn to be a good reader. I liked the Adventures of Letterman & Spiderman. Every day at 4pm my cousin, my sister, and I would be playing outside & we would run into the house saying Its time for The Electric Company, its time for The Electric Company & turn the tv on channel 8 PBS. Thanks also goes out to the rest of the cast. The skits that they did were also a big help when I was learning to read. The cast of The Electric Company were a very talented group. Many of them went on to play parts on other television shows. Of course, Easy Reader Morgan Freeman went on to become a big time movie star. I enjoy watching his movies. But I will always remember Easy Reader & how Kool he was. Butterfly collar, bell bottom pants, sunglasses, afro as Mel Mound the DJ. Even though the show is outdated for today's generation. I think the show would still go over well with a lot of today's kids if they brought it back. As a kid I also watched tv shows that were outdated for my generation, but I still thought a lot of them were good shows. The Andy Griffith show is outdated & its rerun everyday. My niece likes watching some of the shows that I watched when I was a kid, even though she's a 21st century kid with leapfrog games, tablets, etc. Technology galore. The Electric Company. One of the greatest tv shows of all time for teaching kids how to read.

I so totally remember this show, but I don't think kids today would remember this. Still, though, thanks for posting the lyrics. However, you skipped the lyrics for season 3 & 4. You got lyrics for the first season and season 5 & 6. Thanks for the memories!
