Frankie teardrop/Twenty year old Frankie/He’s married he’s got a kid/And he’s working in a factory
He’s working from seven to five/He’s just trying to survive/Well lets hear it for Frankie
Well Frankie can’t make it/’Cause things are just too hard/Frankie can’t make enough money/Frankie can’t buy enough food
And Frankie’s getting evicted/Oh let’s hear it for Frankie
Frankie is so desperate/He’s gonna kill his wife and kids/Frankie’s gonna kill his kid/Frankie picked up a gun
Pointed at the six month old in the crib/Oh Frankie/Frankie looked at his wife
Shot her/”Oh what have I done?”/Let’s hear it for Frankie
Frankie teardrop/Frankie put the gun to his head/Frankie’s dead
Frankie’s lying in hell
We’re all Frankies
We’re all lying in hell
