FRANKIE

Unofficial studio version


Caught dead on the run, out on Chelsea Road
Descending the stairs, Frankie my one
Check yourself out in the mirror, baby, come on honey, let's go
We're gonna move 'round this dirty town
'till the night is all gone
Tricks are all over with plenty of time
The dicks are all covered, straight down the line
There goes Frankie, she's not that kind
Da da da da, da da da da
Da da da da, da da da da
Da da da da, da da da da
Da da da da, da da da da
Frankie just said ???
In the darkness they'll be hidden worlds that shine
Da da da da, da da da da
Da da da da, da da da da
Hmmm
Walk with me tonight little angel
??? little girl
Talk to me tonight little angel
You make all my dream worlds come true

Walk with me tonight little angel
To the shadows where the lovers go
Talk to me tonight little angel
Whisper your secrets soft and low
Walk with me tonight little angel
To the shadows where the lovers go
Talk to me tonight little angel
Whisper your secrets
Hmmm
Walk with me tonight little angel
Into the shadows where the lovers go
Talk to me tonight little angel
Whisper your secrets so soft and low
Walk with me tonight little angel
Walk home with me tonight
Nah nah nah nah nah
Nah nah nah nah nah
Nah nah nah nah nah
Nah nah nah nah nah
Nah nah nah nah nah
