    You're right, of course. I think it may have lost the second part of the title on one of the later "remixes", one of which involved a key change in the middle - but both sections of the medley were certainly credited on all of the original 1978 releases.

    I hadn't either - but I'm just listening now to the top forty show of 17th December 1978, on this link, - and, even on its first week in the chart, Radio One were playing a different version with changed and/or censored lyrics, so nothing obscene would have reached young ears not long after 6pm ! It's at about 1:05:50 on that link. So either Radio One noticed the problem at a very early stage, and prepared their own version - or perhaps that toned-down one was on the seven-inch single, and the original version was only on the album ?

    ^ the radio edit still features the line "chicks'll cream for Greased Lightnin'" - changed to "chicks'll scream" on the Grease Live special on TV recently. Maybe nobody spotted it. (though Prince managed to get a song called Cream on radio playlists) They changed "p*ssy wagon" to "paddy wagon", it sounds like! Huh? That's quite different!
