lyrics

Frankie dear
it’s almost here
It won’t be long
til prom
Frankie baby
the stars all light
the car’s already been and gone
to prom
And all along the long lawn
the stars are falling
the stars are down
it’s all wrong
it’s all wrong
but come on down
& lie to your poor mom
it’s prom
Frankie darling
the band’s gone quiet
Strange how the light
is bent and drawn
into prom
All along the long lawn
the stars are falling
the stars are down
it’s all wrong
it’s all wrong
but come on down
& lie to your poor mom
it’s prom
it’s prom
it’s prom
