Dumb! Meter Song

When I heard the news, I didn’t listen at all,

Until one day they installed it on my wall,

Well, I was mad, so I called on the phone

I said come on over, take it off of my home

It was a vibratin, pulsatin, radiatin smart meter,

A vibratin, pulsatin, radiatin smart meter

Vibratin, pulsatin, radiatin smart meter

Sure seems dumb to me.

They refused to listen to my pleading voice,

They said I had to have one, that I had no choice.

When my bill arrived it was ten times more!

I yelled and screamed and stomped on the floor!

It was a vibratin, pulsatin, radiatin smart meter,

A vibratin, pulsatin, radiatin smart meter

I don’t want one, radiatin smart meter

Sure seems dumb to me. (dumb meter)

My head was hurting, couldn’t sleep a wink

My ears were ringing, I could barely think,

Then my lights went out, my computer fried

That meter exploded and I almost died!

It was a vibratin, pulsatin, radiatin smart meter,

A vibratin, pulsatin, radiatin smart meter

We don’t want one, radiatin smart meter

Sure seems dumb to me. (stupid meter)

These meters aren’t safe, tell your PUC

Protect your health, money, and your privacy

Protect your family, your cats and dogs

Call the PUC, bring back the analogs!

It was a vibratin, pulsatin, radiatin smart meter,

A vibratin, pulsatin, radiatin smart meter

Bring back the analogs, safer than the dumb meters

Sure seems smarter to me.

  1. The song is to the point and puts a light hearted spin on a very serious issue.

    We need to take every opportunity to bring this invasion into our home and the destruction of our constitution to the publics attention.

    I will try to pass this on.

  2. Just goes to show what some concerned folks can do creatively when trampled. Good job Chris and Sandi. I think this one is gonna go somewhere. I am sending it to my musical friends as they prepare for the Ft Bragg P$GE (Power grubbing and extortion company) demo July 29th.
