Frankie, didn't I tell you,
"You got the world in the palm of your hand."
Frankie, didn't I tell you,
"They're running at your command."

You know the chains as if they're your invention.
It wasn't your intention,
To fall in the trap you made.

It's a crying shame.
You left a trail of destruction.
Heartbreaker, you know now,
They really did care cause it's your first affair.
