Pod Racing (To: “Grease Lightning” from the GREASE soundtrack)

Episode: I

Why this racing's regulated.
It's orchestrated.
Computer generated.
Why it's Pod Racing!

I got some custom-built engines to leave the other guys for dead
(Keep talking whoa keep talking)
Some energy binders to zap that stupid gungan's head
(I love to see it, I really love to see it)
No I haven't won it yet, but I will this time, I bet
I navigate the course, 'cause I've learned to use the Force
with Pod Racing!
(Go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go)

Go Pod Racing, the fastest game you've ever seen
(Pod Racing, go Pod Racing)
Go Pod Racing, the hottest thing on Tattooine
(Pod Racing, go Pod Racing)
I love the speed, I feel the need, for Pod Racing!
(Go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go)

I've built-in more gadgets than any racer ever did
Sitting in the cockpit, I feel more machine than kid
If I kick Sebulba's butt, Watto's running from the Hutt
And I'm allowed to leave, if I win the Boonta Eve
Pod Racing!

Go pod racing, I'm gaining on that evil Dug
(Pod Racing, go Pod Racing)
Go pod racing, I almost caught a Tusken slug
(Pod Racing, go Pod Racing)
Someone has been, at my machine, before racing!
Go Pod Racing, I'll give the engine one more start
(Pod Racing, go Pod Racing)
Go Pod Racing, I gotta get to Coruscant
And now it seems, that I'm supreme at Pod Racing
Racing, Racing, Racing
Racing, Racing, Racing
