Automatic, Hydromatic, Systematic

Automatic, Hydromatic, Systematic

For some reason, I found the theme for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday very difficult. I have opted for a song that has a few famous opening lines, which convey the pride Danny has in a set of wheels. I think you will know it well, one of the most memorable tracks from the musical “Grease”.

“Greased Lightning” is one of those songs that everyone knows, everyone has danced to, and everyone assumes is full of innuendo. Well, as I failed in my search for other songs containing the specific words Jim mentioned, I chose this song as it contains similar words. I hope you enjoy and can forgive me for not finding a song that fit the theme more closely.

Why this car is automatic
It's systematic
It's hydromatic
Why it's grease lightning (Grease 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 crap we'll be getting lots of that
In Grease Lightning

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

Go grease lightning you're burning up the quarter mile

Grease lightning go grease lightning

Go grease lightning you're coasting through the heat lap trial

Grease lightning go grease lightning

You are supreme (Oh oh!) the chicks'll scream (Oh oh!) for grease 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 honey wagon
Grease lightning

Go grease lightning you're burning up the quarter mile

Grease lightning go grease lightning

Go grease lighting you're coasting through the heat lap trial

Grease lightning go grease lightning

You are supreme (Oh oh!) the chicks'll scream (Oh oh!) for grease lightning

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

Go grease lightning you're burning up the quarter mile

Grease lightning go grease lightning

Go grease lighting you're coasting through the hit lap trial

Grease lightning go grease lightning

You are supreme (Oh oh!) the chicks'll scream (Oh oh!) for grease lightning

Lightning, lightning, lightning
Lightning, lightning, lightning
Lightning

Yeah!

One thought on “Automatic, Hydromatic, Systematic

  1. Nice find Lady A. I searched for a long time before I was able to find something I liked. Any song from Grease works for me. I never noticed how great the guitars and the drums were in this song before and I guess that was because I concentrated on the dancing.
