How could you let your kids watch Grease with its rude lyrics


Next time you sit down with the kids or grand-kids to watch that all time musical classic you may want to avoid singing along to ‘Greased Lightening’

I have to wonder how many times people have sung along without actually knowing the words, I am assuming many people must be mumbling their way through parts of it, otherwise they would have noticed what the actual lyrics are .

Grease Lightnin’ Lyrics

Why this car is automatic
it’s systematic
it’s hydromatic
Why it’s greased lightnin’!
(grease lightnin’!)

We’ll get some overhead lifters, and four-barrel quads, oh yeah
(Keep talkin’, oh keep talkin’)
Fuel injection cut off, and chrome plated rods, oh yeah
(I’ll get the money, I’ll kill to get the money)
With a four-speed on the floor, they’ll be waitin’ at the door
You know that aint no shit
we’ll be gettin’ lots of tit in grease lightnin’

Go, grease lightnin’, you’re burnin’ up the quarter mile
(Grease lightnin’, go grease lightnin’)
Go, grease lightnin’, you’re coastin’ through the heat lap trials
(Grease lightnin’, go grease lightnin’)
You are supreme, the chicks’ll cream for grease lightnin’

We’ll get some purple French tail lights and thirty-inch fins, oh yeah
A palomino dashboard and duel muffler twins, oh yeah
With new pistons, plugs, and shocks, I can get off my rocks
You know that I ain’t braggin’,
she’s a real pussy wagon – grease lightnin’

chorus repeats

(guitar and drums)

chrorus repeats

I am not a prude, it is just funny that most people have not noticed
If you don’t believe me listen for yourself

  1. So funny that you bring up this point. My daughter recently started watching Grease and enjoyed the music. So off I went, proud mother and got her the soundtrack for the next holiday trip. Well….hmmmm….yeah….I guess I don’t need to explain that on first listening I realised what the lyrics were. Oh boy. For some reason I had never picked up on it while watching the movie. We quickly switched to some Disney songs 😄☺️
