Frankie and Johnny was sweethearts At least that's the way the story goes Frankie bought everything for Johnny From his sports car to his Ivy League clothes He was a man alright, oh but he was doing her wrong Just to show you what can happen A friend came running to Frankie She said you know I wouldn't tell you no lie I saw your man riding in his Jaguar With a chick named Nellie Blye He was your man honey, oh and he was doing you wrong Let me tell the story Frankie ran around the corner And peeked in a swinging place There she saw Johnny with the woman He had his arms around her waist Aw, he was a man alright but Frankie could see that he was Doing her wrong. And oh let me tell you Frankie reached down in her pocketbook And up with a long forty-four She shot once, twice, three times and Johnny fell to the hard wood floor Aw, he was a man alright but Frankie 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, yeah Now Frankie, you know darn 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 And I know, I know I was doing You wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong Now Frankie, you know darn well that I love you
