Consider the following lyric from the song Let’s Do it For Our Country featured in the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man of Slumber Party movies, Grease 2, and written by musical genius and snappy dresser, Rob Hegel (who wants you to know about his “other” credits and see his full length glamour shot where he casually wears a dress shirt ).
Yeah, let’s do it for our country, the red, white, and the blue.
It’s Uncle Sam who’s asking, so your mother will approve.
Tomorrow I’ll be fighting, and I’ll win this war for you.
Let’s do it for our country, our country wants us to.
And now watch this life-changing (Yes! Life-changing! Well…at least for those of us who couldn’t get out to beloved-by-the-masses Broadway shows back in the 80s) performance by Maureen “Doris Finsecker” Teefy and Peter “That Guy From That Thing” Frechette.
Happy Independence Day. I’ll leave you with the following quotes.
“I just did it and I’m ready to do it again!”
–Mel Brooks. History of the World Part 1
“What are you doing Louis? Get off of me!”
–Maureen Teefy. Grease 2.
