Goodbye Grease

I solve my problems and I see the light
We got to plug and think, we gotta feed it right
There ain’t no danger we can go to far
We start believing now that we can be who we are

Grease is the word
They think our love is just a growing pain
Why don’t they understand, It’s just a crying shame
Their lips are lying only real is real
We start to find right now we got to be what we feel
We take the pressure and we throw away
Conventionality belongs to yesterday
There is a chance that we can make it so far
We start believing now that we can be who we are

Grease is the word
Is the word that you heard
It’s got groove it’s got meaning
Grease is the time, is the place is the motion
Grease is the way we are feeling

Grease is the word
Is the word that you heard
It’s got groove it’s got meaning
Grease is the time, is the place is the motion
Grease is the way we are feeling

Grease is the word
Is the word
Is the word
Is the word

Heard this on the radio today and went back to the time when guys greased their hair. We use to roll cigarette packages into our short sleeves. We use to wear undershirts as outershirts. We wore tight pants and we were into cars. We would race them. We loved the rev of the engines. The power.

Girls wore big skirts with poodles on them. They were females and we were supposed to treat them nice like statutes, breakable and fragile.

Grease was not a word. It was a gooey mess. We acted irresponsibly and a lot of children were conceived in the back of an auto known as Grease Lightning. Early marriage and pregnant girls.

Reading this one realizes that the only change is that guys sometimes can afford a hotel room.

My hair is gone and so are many who played the parts in Grease. Time marched on and the grease phase is gone.
