Franky And The Twisters (A Frank Willis)

Back in time when Coke was a dime,
And Maverick was on TV;
Franky and the boys gathered up their toys,
To make music history.
With a new PA and Chevrolet,
They went from town to town;
There was always romance at a high school dance,
Whenever they came around.
In sleazy bars with old guitars,
They played till the break of dawn;
They played Elvis, and the peppermint twist,
The band rocked all night long.

Franky And The Twisters are playing tonight,
They're playing hot music and doing it right;
Pretty girls are coming from miles around,
To dance the night away and hear their sound.

Franky And The Twisters know how to swing,
They send you to the moon and bring you back again;
Just when you think they're about to stop,
They kick it in high gear and really bop.

Franky went far in that beat up car,
They bought a brand new plane;
Pretty little girls all over the world,
Were driving them all insane.
Now the years have past and Franky pumps gas,
The drummer got a PHD;
The piano man owns a hot dog stand,
And he raised a family.
Another one died of suicide,
No one really knows for sure;
The man on the bass got a woman's face,
And he ain't a man no more.
