Song title: Frankie fell in love


Frankie fell in love

Good mornin’, good mornin’, the church mouse is snorin’
News is out all over town, Frankie fell in love

Wake up boys, wake up, you drunken choir boys shake it up
Our Juliet says her Romeo’s been found, Frankie fell in love

World peace is gonna break out, from here on in we’re eatin’ take out
She ain’t gonna be cookin’ for the likes of us
Somebody call mama and just tell her, Frankie fell in love

Einstein and Shakespeare, sittin’ havin’ a beer
Einstein tryin’ to figure out the number that adds up to bliss
Shakespeare says, “Man, it all starts with a kiss”

Einstein is scratchin', numbers on his napkin
Shakespeare says, "Man, it’s just one and one makes three,
That’s why it’s poetry"

World peace is gonna break out, from here on in we’re eatin’ take out
She ain’t gonna be cookin’ for the likes of us
Somebody call mama and just tell her, Frankie fell in love

Glory, glory, it’s the same old story,
Kid there ain’t nothin’ anybody can do
Yea it’s gonna happen to you, just like, Frankie fell in love

Good evening, good evening, the church mouse is sleepin’
News is out all over town, Frankie fell in love
