D7                                     C7
A generator is a machine that contains a powerful
magnet
that creates a magnetic field. When wires are
rotated rapidly
                          D7
through this field then a current of electricity is
 produced.
     C7               G7 
Now, if we only had a superhero who could stand
 here and turn
 the generator real fast, then we wouldn't need to
                               C7 
burn so much fuel to make ... electricity.

Electricity at rest is called static electricity.
                   C7

You get a shock off the doorknob.

And zap 'im on the ear with a shock of-
