Grease Megamix - Song Lyrics

Why this car is automatic
It's systematic

Why it's greased lightning

(You're The One That I Want)
(Him) I got chills, they're multiplyin',
And I'm losin' control
Cause the power, you're supplyin', 
It's electrifyin'

(Her) You better shape up, (ooh ooh ooooh)
Cause I need a man, (ooh ooh ooooh)
And my heart is set on you, 
(And my heart is set on you)
You better shape up, (ooh ooh ooooh)
You better understand, (ooh ooh ooooh)
To my heart I must be true

(Him) Nothing left, nothing left for me to do

You're the one that I want 
(You are the one I want)
Ooh ooh ooh, honey
The one that I want 
(You are the one I want)
Ooh ooh ooh, honey
The one that I want 
(You are the one I want)
Ooh ooh ooh
The one I need 
(One I need)
Oh yes indeed

It's greased lightning

(Greased Lightning)
We'll get some overhead lifters 
And some four barrel quads oh yeah
(Keep talking whoa keep talking)

A fuel injection cutoff 
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 waiting at the door
You know that ain't no shit 
We'll be getting lots of tit
Greased Lightning

Go greased lightning 
You're burning up the quarter mile
(Greased lightning go greased lightning)

Go greased lightning 
You're coasting through the heat lap trial
(Greased lightning go greased lightning)

You are supreme (Uh huh)
The chicks'll cream (Uh huh)
For greased lightning

Go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go

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 bragging 
She's a real pussy wagon
Greased lightning


(Summer Nights)
Him - Summer loving had me a blast,
Her - summer loving happened so fast
Him - I met a girl crazy for me,
Her - Met a boy cute as can be

Summer days drifting away 
To ah oh the summer nights
Well oh well oh well

Tell me more, tell me more, 
Did you get very far?

Tell me more, tell me more, 
Like does he have a car?

Uh huh, uh huh, uh huh, uh huh

Him - She swam by me she got a cramp

Her - He swam by me got my suit damp
Him - I saved her life she nearly drowned
Her - He showed off splashing around

Summer sun 
Something's begun 
But ah oh the summer nights
Well of well of well

Tell me more, tell me more, 
Was it love at first sight?

Tell me more, tell me more, 
Did she put up a fight?

Her - It turned colder that's where it ends
Him - So I told her we'd still be friends
Her - Then we made our true love vow
Him - Wonder what she's doing now

Summer dreams ripped at the seams but...

Those summer...nights

Tell me more, tell me more
