"Grease" as written by and Barry Alan Gibb....
I saw my problems and I'll see the light
We got a lovin' thing, we gotta 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 lyin', only real is real
We stop the fight right now, we got to be what we feel, grease is the word

(Grease is the word, is the word that you heard)
It's got a groove, it's got a meaning
Grease is the time, is the place, is the motion
Grease is the way we are feeling

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

This is a life of illusion, a life of control
Mixed with confusion - what're we doin' 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

(Grease is the word, is the word, is the word)

    General CommentFrankie Valli sang the song, but it was written by the great Brothers Gibb, as were most, I believe, of the songs on the soundtrack.

    I'm surprised that most of the comments on the song point toward not knowing what the lyrics meant or that the song had almost nothing to do with the movie. The song says what most of the movie does--that two teens from vastly different backgrounds are in love despite(or perhaps because of)those differences. And those around them can't understand the attraction. Good girls should only date good guys, and only bad girls should attract the bad guys. Today that can be used to describe any "alternative" relationship: status, race, age, whatever. The song is saying that we're in love no matter what our peers or society have to say about the matter, and we should be free to be who we are, not what they say we should be. A very powerful message, powerful lyrics, all set to one hell of a dance-worthy beat. Simply amazing.

    General CommentAlso 'We start believin' now that we can be who we are ' means to me that we should all be able to feel like we can be ourselves and not worry about what other people think. Again great song.

    General CommentIt means to me about forgetting lifes pressures, solving your problems and being who you want to be.

    Grease is the word!
    It's 'I solve my problems and I see the light'.
