1. The rolling boulder crashing down the mountain That’s Kinetic Energy
The boulder sitting high up on the mountain —
That’s Potential Energy

Chorus. Energy in motion is Kinetic
Energy that’s waiting is Potential
But whether it’s Kinetic or Potential
Both of them are energy! (Ole!)

2. You stretch a rubber band and then release it —
That’s Kinetic Energy
You stretch a rubber band and then you hold it —
That’s Potential Energy

3. The heat that comes when gasoline is burning —
That’s Kinetic Energy
The energy that gasoline has stored up —
That’s Potential Energy
