Special Note to Vocalists: This is Frank’s honest attempt to transcribe the lyric in the original recording as accurately as possible, recognizing that the words are bit unclear in a few spots and that you will find several other interpretations on the internet. Please don’t fuss over the differences. Simply make the song your own!
