listen to my story of how the west was won
It wasn't with a cannon or the barrel of a
It wasn't by those cowboys a herding of their
But by a lawman quite concerned about electric
name was Georgy Simon Ohm, physics was his job
His duty as the marshal was to try and tame
He had to face those outlaws, but luck was
on his side
Cause Coulomb, Watt and Kirchoff were ridin'
by his side.
It's Ohm's Law, electrons
must be tamed
Voltage equals current
times resistance is the game
So follow that conductor
boys or leave your charge at home
Cause if you don't you'll
have to deal with Georgy Simon Ohm.
rode into that town one day but never were surprised
To find the folks that lived there were
all quite polarized
With negative ions on the left, positive
on the right
That marshal knew this town was due for
quick discharge of light.
marshal and his deputies decided on the job
To neutralize the outlaw leader called Electron
They found him in a honky tonk they called
"The Cathode Bar"
The marshal said, "Electron Bob, let's see
how tough you are".
Bob was dangerous but wasn't very large
The marshal had a warrant, Bob then asked
him "What's the charge?"
The marshal said quite clearly "You're surely
bound for hell,
You've pushed your weight around just one
too many outer shells".
marshal calm as anything, continued with his claim
He said "I have a proton here inscribed
with your own name"
That outlaw made his move, but he never
passed the test
Cause Georgy Ohm was faster, laid Electron
Bob at rest.
Georgy and his deputies a strategy did draw
They gathered all electrons and explained
to them the law
They'd have to move in currents and be pushed
along by volts
And through conductors pass as amps and
through the sky as bolts.
all you electricians give thanks in every land
That Georgy and his deputies, courageously
Without those laws no light bulbs would
illuminate the night
And we'd be forced to watch TV by only candle
