Eventually father riley b. jones gets around to joe with his little case of pre-blessed unguents...

Central scrutinizer:
This is the central scrutinizer... poor joe. he's getting tired from bending over...but we tried to warn him...didn't we? okay, joe...you asked for it...here comes the big one...

Joe: (anointing himself as he sings)
Keep it greasey
So it'll go down easy
Keep it greasey
So it'll go down easy
Keep it greasey
So it'll go down easy

Manx:
Roll it over 'n
Grease it down
I'll drive you through
The heart of town

Joe:
Keep it greasey
So it'll go down easy
Keep it greasey
So it'll go down easy
Keep it greasey
So it'll go down easy

Manx:
Roll it over 'n
Grease it down
I'll drive you through
The heart of town

Joe (who is still wearing his housewife costume from when he first picked up sy borg in the closet) adjusts his little apron to a more advantageous position and sings...

Joe:
Hey, the good women,
They sure has it tough
The good men, well
There ain't enough
All the good girls are
Lookin' all the time
Good men is
Something that
They can't find
'cause if they
Find one miraculously
They try to be lovin'
As they can be
If they find
One and let him go
Chances are they
Might not never find
One no mo'

Keep it greasey
So it'll go down easy
Keep it greasey
So it'll go down easy
Keep it greasey
So it'll go down easy

Manx:
Roll it over 'n
Grease it down
I'll drive you through
The heart of town

Joe:
A good lovin' man
Is hardest to find
A good woman needs
To ease her mind
And I know a few that
Need to ease it behind
All y'gotta do is
Grease it down
'n everything is fine

Keep it greasey
So it'll go down easy
Keep it greasey
So it'll go down easy
Keep it greasey
So it'll go down easy

Manx:
Roll it over 'n grease
It down
I'll drive you through
The heart of town

Joe:
A girl don't need
No fancy grease
To get herself
Some rump release
Any kind
Of lube'll do
Maybe from another
Part of you
Lube from the north
Lube from the south
Take a little slobber
From the side of
Your mouth
From your mouth
From your mouth
From your mouth
From your mouth
Roll it over
Grease it down
Here come that crazy
Screamin' sound...

Keep it greasey
So it'll go down easy
Keep it greasey
So it'll go down easy
Keep it greasey
So it'll go down easy
Roll it over 'n grease it
Down, down, down
Grease it down...
Oh no! here comes
That screamin' sound
Again...

And sure enough the walls of the prison did rever- berate with all sorts of screamin' sounds as lawyers and execs and promo per- sonages all decide to jump on joe for a spectacular high speed ga
Ng leading to...
