“If you want to make me flip, hit me with a microchip”


“If you want to make me flip, hit me with a microchip” – The Polecats – Make a circuit with me

A sweet romance is not for me
I need electricity
If you wanna make me flip
Hit me with a micro chip

I’ll be a diode, cathode, electrode
Overload, generator, oscillator
Make a circuit with me

Just plug in and go-go-go
I’ll be your human dynamo
Signals in my power cord
Impulse on my circuit board

I’m an AC/DC man
You can read my circuit diagram
I feed on electric jolts
I need fifty-thousand volts

A sweet romance is not for me
I really need electricity
If you wanna make me flip
Come on and hit me with a micro chip

I’m an AC/DC man
You can read my circuit diagram
I feed on electric jolts
I need fifty-thousand volts

I’ll be your human dynamo.

  1. Thank you for such a wonderful blast from the past :)
    I went through the 80s and managed to miss this gem.
    Whilst I’m at it, thanks for all that you do!
