"On with the Show" as written by and Vince Neil Nikki Sixx....
Frankie died just the other night
Some say it was suicide
But we know
How the story goes

With his six string knife
And his street-wise pride
The boy was a man before his time
And she knew
All their dreams would come true

But ya see Frankie was fast
He was too fast to know
He wouldn't go slow
Until his lethal dose
And she knows
He'll finally come too close

Well on with the show
Going on with the show
Come on baby
No, no, no
Oh my, my, my, my, my, my

He was bad
He was never good
But one thing that he understood
And she knew
All these lies would come true

The time has come
And he's paid his dues
And Suzy finally got the news
She always knew
This day would come soon

He was stopped on a dime
With a switchblade knife
Some damn punk went and
Took Frankie's life
And she knew
She'd have to pull through

Broken down
With his broken dreams
With a wink of an eye
Said Suzy, listen to me
You must go
On with the show

Oh baby

    General CommentThis song seems to be about someones love that was killed and the other who should be the most broken is the strongest. This is a song about moving on and being strong.

    General CommentI personally like this version better then The Ataris..the Ataris are great, but not at this song. They don't seem to have the right beat to it. The Get Up Kids do it so much better with vocals and beat.

    General CommentThis is definitely from The Motley Crue, but I do believe its about life on the streets and what its like to live on the streets.
