# Love

# Is a many splendoured thing

I'm going back to Australia,

I won't see you again.

Don't talk that way, Sandy.

But it's true.

I've had the best summer of my life.

Now I have to go away. It isn't fair.

- Danny, don't spoil it.

- Sandy, it's only making it better.

Danny, is this the end?

Of course not.

It's only the beginning.

This is the main brain,

Vince Fontaine,

beginning your day the only way.

Music, music.

Get out of bed, first day of school.

Don't be a slob, don't get a job,

go back to class, you can pass.

To start the day off nice and fine,

here's a new old favourite of mine.

# I solve my problems

and I see the light

# We got a lovin' thing

# We got to feed it right

# There ain't no danger

we can go too far

# We start believin' now

# That we can be who we are

# Grease is the word

# They think our love

is just a growin' pain

# Why don't they understand?

# It's just a cryin' shame

# Their lips are lying,

only real is real

# We stop the fight right now

# We got to be what we feel

# Grease is the word

# Is the word,

is the word that you've 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 feelin'

# 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 believin' now

# That we can be who we are

# Grease is the word

# Is the word,

is the word that you've heard

# It's got groove, it's got meaning

# Grease is the time,

is the place, is the motion

# Now grease is the way

we are feelin'

# This is a life of illusion

# Wrapped up in troubles

# Laced in confusion

# What are we doing here?

# 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 believin' now

# That we can be who we are

# Grease is the word

# Is the word,

is the word that you've 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 feelin'

# Grease is the word,

is the word that you've 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 feelin'

# Grease is the word,

is the word, is the word

- You don't eat this, you bury it.

- That's a home-made lunch.

Your old lady drag her carcass

out of bed for you?

- She does it first day of school.

- Big deal.

- Kenickie. Over here.

- Where you at?

We're right here.

- Where were you all summer?

- Are you my mother?

- Just askin'.

- Working. More than you can say.

- Working?

- Yes, lugging boxes at Bargain City.

- Nice job.

- Eat me.

I'm saving up to get me some wheels.

- Wanna hear what I did?

- No.

Hey, there's Danny.

Danny! Danny!

You seen any new broads there?

Nah, same old chicks,

everybody's made them.

So what'd you do all summer?

I was hanging around at the beach.

You know.

It's tough with all those chicks

hanging around you.

The only thing

that hangs around you are the flies.

How was the action

at the beach, man?

Whew. It was flipping.

Yeah? Crazy?

I did meet this one chick.

She was sorta cool.

You mean she puts out?

Come on, Sonny,

is that all you think about?

- Freakin' A.

- (bell)

Hey, guys, wait up.

- Do I look OK, Frenchy?

- Sure, you look good.

- I'm really nervous.

- You look terrific.

- So, this is Rydell?

- Yep. You'll love it.

I loved the last school I was at.

I wish I was there right now.

Still, I'm no stranger to heartbreak.
