The first time I saw her I couldn't be sure But the sin of impatience Said â??She's just what you're looking forâ?? So I walked right up to her And with the part of me that talks I introduced myself as Frank From New York New York She's so hot She's so cool I'm not I'm just a fool in love with darling Lorraine
All my life I've been a wanderer Not really, I mostly lived near my parents' home Anyway Lorraine and I got married And the usual marriage stuff Then one day she says to me From out of the blue Frank, I've had enough Romance is a heart breaker I'm not meant to be a homemaker And I'm tired of being darling Lorraine
What, you don't love me anymore? What, you're walking out the door? What, you don't like the way I chew? Hey let me tell you You're not the woman that I wed You say you're depressed but you're not You just like to stay in bed I don't need you darling Lorraine Darling Lorraine Lorraine I long for your love
Financially speaking I guess I'm a washout Everybody's buy and sell And sell and buy and And that's what the whole thing's all about If it had not been for Lorraine I'd have left here long ago I should have been a musician I love the piano She's so light She's so free I'm tight, well, that's me But I feel so good With darling Lorraine
On Christmas morning Frank awakes To find Lorraine has made a stack of pancakes They watch the television, husband and wife All afternoon â??It's A Wonderful Lifeâ??
What, you don't love me anymore? What, you're walking out the door? What, you don't like the way I chew? Hey let me tell you You're not the woman that I wed Gimme my robe I'm going back to bed I'm sick to death of you Lorraine
Darling Lorraine Lorraine Her hands like wood The doctor was smiling But the news wasn't good
Darling Lorraine Please don't leave me yet I know you're in pain Pain you can't forget Your breathing is like an echo of our love Maybe I'll go down to the corner store And buy us something sweet Here's an extra blanket honey To wrap around your feet All the trees were washed with April rain And the moon in the meadow Took darling Lorraine
