INTRO

It's systematic, - it's high dramatic, - what's greased lightning!

OPENER    Basic, unknown progression

All four ladies chain across the ring I sing
(Oh, sweet talking),
Four ladies chain back home
Then join hands and circle left around the ring you go awhile
Allemande left and weave the ring
With a four speed on the floor, never waiting on the door,
Swing your lady round and promenade around the square
You hold her hand for a promenade - you don't even shift
Oh, greased lightning!


FIGURE    Basic, no progression

Come on the heads (sides) square thru go four hands around you know
(Oh, sweet talking)
You dosado, then a swing thru two by two
Now the boys run right for me
(I'll get you the money),
Ferris wheel around and the centers pass thru
Touch 1/4 now, scoot back,
Swing your lady round and promenade around the square
You hold her hand for a promenade - you don't even shift
Oh, greased lightning!


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
(32 beats instrumental)
Four ladies promenade inside the ring go, come back home and
Swing your men,
Swing your lady round and promenade her on the ring back home
(Let the music play)


TAG

Swing
Lightning, - Lightning, - Lightning, - Lightning!
Lightning, - Lightning, - Lightning, - Lightning!, - Lightning! - Yeah!

Greased Lightnin' Lyrics ID: 2041

Well this car is automatic, it's systematic, it's hydromatic
Why, it could be Greased Lightnin'!

We'll get some overhead lifters and some four barrel quads, oh yeah
Keep talkin', whoah 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 ain't no shit, we'll be gettin' lots of tit
In Greased Lightnin'
Go, go, go, go, go-go-go-go-go-go-go-go

Go, Greased Lightnin'
You're burnin' up the quarter mile
Greased Lightnin', go Greased Lightnin'
Go Greased Lightnin'
You're coasting through the heat lap trials
Greased Lightnin', go Greased Lightnin'
You are supreme
The chicks'll cream
For Greased Lightnin'
Go, go, go, go, go-go-go-go-go-go-go-go

We'll get some purple pitched tail lights and thirty inch fins, oh yeah
A palomino dashboard and duel-muffler twins, oh yeah
With new boosters, plates and shocks
I can get off my rocks
You know that I ain't braggin', she's a real pussy wagon
Greased Lightnin'
Go, go, go, go, go-go-go-go-go-go-go-go

Go, Greased Lightnin'
You're burnin' up the quarter mile
Greased Lightnin', go Greased Lightnin'
Go Greased Lightnin'
You're coasting through the heat lap trials
Greased Lightnin', go Greased Lightnin'
You are supreme
The chicks'll cream
For Greased Lightnin'
Go, go, go, go, go-go-go-go-go-go-go-go

Go, Greased Lightnin'
You're burnin' up the quarter mile
Greased Lightnin', go Greased Lightnin'
Go Greased Lightnin'
You're coasting through the heat lap trials
Greased Lightnin', go Greased Lightnin'
You are supreme
The chicks'll cream
For Greased Lightnin'
Lightnin', lightnin', lightnin', lightnin'
Lightnin', lightnin', lightnin', lightnin'
Lightnin'!

Lyrics by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey.
Recorded by John Travolta.
