Frankie: Well hey sunshine!
Mary: Sunshine? Looks like rain to me
Frankie: Not in here it don't.
Mary: Why Frankie Epps, quit that, you hear?
Frankie: What? I ain't doin' anything!

I'm gonna go to the picture show
There's a movie I've got to see
You know the one, called "The Silver Gun"
Well, I been watchin' since Chapter Three
I can't wait, it's at eight
But I was wonderin' if you're free

Go on, go on, go on, go on
You know my mama'd never let me till I turn sixteen
Go on, go on, go on, go on
Besides I only go to pictures that I haven't seen

Frankie: Well when do you turn sixteen?
Mary: Two years from next June.
Frankie: Too bad about your mama...
Mary: Too bad for you!

I know a spot near Mcconnach's lot
Where you can see the parade real clear
I got a book, you wanna take a look?
It's called "The Theif and the Brigadier"
I got gum, you want some?

I haven't chewed gum fer a year!

Go on, go on, go on, go on
I bet your mama'd let me take you to the picture show

Go on, go on, go on, go on
I guess you weren't really listening when I said "No!"

Why not ask Iola Stover
Her mama lets her do whatever she wants

I was hopin' I could go with you

Go on ask Iola Stover
Her mama lets her see whoever she wants

Well, maybe I will

I hope you do

Frankie: Hey, Where you goin'?
Mary: To the factory, I didn't get my pay this week
Frankie: Okay. I'll see you around.
Mary: At the picture show
Frankie: What? I thought your mama wouldn't let you.
Mary: She will with Essie and Betty-Jean. Just not with you.
Frankie: Bye sunshine!
De de de de de de de de de de
Go on, go on, go on, go on...

Well, Iola! You goin' to the pictures tonight?
