The Outsiders the Musical - Grease Got a Hold Lyrics


The song is written by Jonathan Clay, Zach Chance and Justin Levine.

Ponyboy, I think it's time to learn
That grease isn't given,
It's something that you earn
Some of us are smooth like James Dean
Some of us are cold
And a little more mean
Time to be tough and quick on your feet
There ain't no way a boy can
Make it out on the street

Unless you're mean as a fighter
And you're sharp as a blade
Play it cool, little brother
And you'll have it made

No, we ain't got money,
But we got something to prove
You're a greaser now
And you ain't going back
You're an eastbound train on a greaser track
Let it be known
That the grease got a hold of you

G is for getting the lick
And not giving the bit
'Cause they're tough on your chin
R is for your reputation
Because if you lose
It then you'll never win
E is to even the score
When the socs come at you
With all that they've got
A you're an animal
S you've got stamina,
E is embracing your life

It's not about getting your licks
It's about licking your gets

G is getting the girls every time
'Cause you got irresistible charm
R is for reeling them in
And then keeping the prettiest one on your arm
E is for effortless swagger,
The kind that the ladies can never deny
A for affected but not too selective, and
E is for catching their eye

It ain't just about busting heads
And chasing tail (Nope)
Sometimes you gotta stop
And ... (Show us how it's done!)

I may not be the sharpest tack in the box
I think it changes a lot
I ain't no sweetheart Romeo but I do fine
You better bet your life

Being a greaser is playing your hand even
When there's no way you can win
Proving them wrong even
When they decide the winner before you begin
It's about overcoming and beating the odds,
It's fighting for all that you've got
There'll always be haves,
You better be sure that the haves
Will make sure you have not

Ponyboy,
I think it's time you learn (What?)
You wanna be James Dean?
You gonna crash and burn
You gotta set your sights on something more
You wanna be a fighter?
Then know just what you're fighting for

You wanna be tough,
You'd better listen to me
Ive seen it all
I ... the lights on the street
I'll teach you everything
You need to know ...
Oh, you're a grease for life

So play it mean as a fighter
And be sharp as a blade
Play it cool little brother
And you'll have it made
No we ain't got money
But we got something to prove
You're a greaser now
And you ain't going back
You're an eastbound train
On a greaser track
Let it be known
That the grease got a hold on you

Little brother now you're on your way
Let it be known
That the grease got a hold on you
Little brother now ready to stay
Let it be known
That the grease got a hold on you
