Frankie, didn't I tell you,
Frankie, didn't I tell you,

It wasn't your intention,
To fall in the trap you made.
It's a crying shame.
Heartbreaker, you know now,

"The lion would come in for a kill,"
"It had power over your sweet skill."
So where is the laughter you spat right in their faces?

You could not win the game, heartbreaker.

Frankie's first affair.
Frankie, Frankie's first affair.

You know now,

Frankie's first affair.
Frankie's first affair.
It's your turn,
It's your turn,
It's your turn,
It's your turn,


Now you discover.
And don't you realize,
Yes it is
The party's over,
