Frankie

Johnny Ronald’s brother was a baseball star
They called him Frankie the Machine for his golden arm
But Johnny, all he really wanted was to play guitar
Thinking why does everybody always work so hard
(I’ll give ‘em)

WHOOP DIDDY
WHOOP DIDDY
WHOOP DIDDY
WHOOP DIDDY

I’m feeling sentimental and I’m caught up in a loop
Did he set up scented candles and talk about how it used to be
You made it easy like a base on balls
Gave me a reason to play at all
Keep your eye on that ball

Aint nobody every gone change
Aint no money every gone come my way
Champagne in the middle of the day
Tryna stay awake for the Anaheim game
Damn look at that play
Caught ‘em off base
Pop fly tagged out caught too late
It’s time I traded this old bat for a new bass
Call it safe but it’s all a game

There I said it
It’ll break your heart
Like your name’s Tom Petty  
And you better not let it down
When it all goes wrong take no blame, take no credit
When it all goes wrong,
Johnny, Johnny tell ‘em

You can tell, you can tell, you can absolutely tell
I’m pushin everything about me up one hell of a hill
You can tell, you can tell, you can absolutely tell
I’m pushin everything about me up one hell of a hill

You can tell, you can tell, you can absolutely tell
I’m pushin everything about me up one hell of a hill
You can tell, you can tell, you can absolutely tell
I’m pushin everything about me up one hell of a hill

I don’t wanna care about it anyway
You can make it heavy I know I can handle any weight
I’m used to booze
Minute Maid lemonade celebrate anything anytime anyway
Leviosah, feels like I’m levitating
Not much goin on but I never stayed in
If I look excited, I’m just that kind of guy

Did you get used to me baby?
Do you still even give the truth to me baby?
Or did we choose to lose?
I wanna choose to move with you baby
Get long in the tooth with you baby
I wanna hangout in the dugout with you baby
And we can choose to lose

You can tell, you can tell, you can absolutely tell
I’m pushin everything about me up one hell of a hill
You can tell, you can tell, you can absolutely tell
I’m pushin everything about me up one hell of a hill

You can tell, you can tell, you can absolutely tell
I’m pushin everything about me up one hell of a hill
You can tell, you can tell, you can absolutely tell
I’m pushin everything about me up one hell of a hill
