    Red Prysock told us the word was "Thunderbird" back in 1957

    The Rivingtons changed the word to "Bird" in 1963

    The Trashman confirmed that "Bird" is the word later in in 1963

    Frankie Vallie changed the word to "Grease" in 1978

    .....where will this lead us. Where will we go next. What will happen to the word? Will it again change, will it forevermore be "Grease" Will it revert back to "Thunderbird" or perhaps only go back a short way in reference to that great surfer know as "Bird?"

    Where, oh where shall we turn to learn what the word will be?!?

    Its obviously a complex poem about how life can somtimes decieve us, but when times are not right, we must press on, because in the end, our effort and commitment to our dreams makes us who we are, and if times are not right, it is not the end, because in the end, everything will be right.

    I feel as though surfing bird signifies the eternal relation betweren man and his love for the avian variety. For this reason, the trashmen speaks truly in a way that no other can hope to emulate. In my opinion, today's society idolizes rap and similar obnoxious noises. If every person were to hear this song, just once, the world would be a better place. We all shall fall, hail satan.
