You gotta move right - all of the positive
And move left - all of the negative
To split charge - is an imperative
When you are in electric fields

You gotta give in - and quickly polarize
No choice - you can't do otherwise
No need - to overdramatize
In field, you simply gotta yield

Electric fields - produce a force
Charges can't resist - no need for remorse
What can you do - but just polarize quick of course

Yes, I said you better move right - all of the positive
And move left - all of the negative
To split charge - is an imperative
When you are in electric fields
(In field, you simply gotta yield)
