Frankie reached down In her pocketbook And up with a long .44 She shot once, twice, three times And Johnny fell on The hardwood floor Oh, he was a man, all right But she shot him because He was doing her wrong But the last thing he told her was Frankie, you know I love you Why, honey, why did you do that Frankie, I was telling her about you Frankie, you know I love you Frankie, you know that I love you Yeah, yeah, yeah Now, Frankie, you know Good and well that I love you Frankie, I'll always love you, baby Frankie, you know I can't do without you Frankie, you know I love you I'm your man and although I was Doing you wrong, wrong, wrong Let me tell you Frankie, baby You know that I love you
