"Frankie and Annette" as written by and Casey Susan Dienel....
Frankie and Annette ran off at sixteen and it all started at a Red Sox ball game.
In a Cracker Jack box, Frankie found a ring and said "How's about making me a man?"
Frankie was just laid off at the store, they said
"Kid, you've got some shit to learn about selling cheese to customers."
If you're not wrapping it in cellophane you're writing it.

It's all about your 15 seconds,
And it's all about walking away from the wreck,
It's all about assembling a life from what's left on the streets,
Hubcap coffee cups and broken love seats.

They took off on the road in fraudulent car,
Held a cashier at gunpoint in a Cumberland Farms,
Got married by a guy who was impersonating a judge
And for twenty five dollars did house-calls.

It's all about your fifteen seconds,
And it's all about walking away from the wreck,
It's all about assembling a life from what's left on the streets,
Hubcap coffee cups and broken love seats.

Maybe I'll buy you a little house down on Grasshopper Street,
9-5 behind a Pavoni machine,
Then I'll know you up with a little baby
And we'll name him Martinez.

They got caught by the cops when they got to Columbus,
"Kids, who is it that put you up to this?"
Frankie said it was fate, Annette said it was love.
"Book 'em Danno, we got our front page.

It's all about your fifteen seconds,
And it's all about walking away from the wreck,
It's all about assembling a life from what's left on the streets,
Hubcap coffee cups and broken love seats,
Hubcap coffee cups and broken love seats.
Oh, hubcap coffee cups and broken love seats.
