lyrics

So your power bill's in and there's a frown on your face
But don't worry about it, coz I'm on the case
I'll track down all your vile energy thieves
Insulate your ceiling, and fix all your leaks
I'm hot on the trail of rogue heat escapees
Check your thermostat, watch me save your degrees
Change your showerhead, turn down your hot water
Then I'll save it by jumping in with your teenage daughter
Triple glaze your windows, turn off your lights
Don't leave your television on overnight
Out with your beer fridge, put it in the main fridge
If you got no room then put ice in your beverage
Ban the fan heater and get a heat pump
Don't degrade electricity to heat, you chump

I'm the energy detective
I'm the energy detective, yeah
I'm the energy detective, bitches and hoes
I'm the energy detective, yo

I don't just save your energy but money, too
Who's your retailer, how big is your fuse?
What plan are you on? Is it alright?
Would you use cheaper energy in the night?
If you wanna risk it and live on the edge
You can pay spot prices or maybe a hedge
I'll analyse your tariffs right down to the hour
Tell you the best time of day to take a shower
Don't turn everything on at one time
Your demand charge is an economic energy crime

I'm the energy detective
I'm the energy detective, yeah
I'm the energy detective, bitches and hoes
I'm the energy detective, yo

I like saving money but i love saving the earth
Without it we'd be dead so it's got maximum worth
So many motherfuckers just don't even care
That we're pumping out carbon into the air
They keep making coal plants and mining the ground
Driving V8s in circles round and round
I'll catch them and send them to energy jail
The things they have done are beyond the pale
So don't burn coal, it's real bad, not good
If you gotta burn something then i guess burn wood
But before you combust stop and think for a sec
Do you need this now or can you take a rain check
Make sure you're not doing anything shocking
When the energy police come a-knock-knock-knockin'

I'm the energy detective
I'm the energy detective, yeah
I'm the energy detective, bitches and hoes
I'm the energy detective, yo
