Frank And Lola

by Jimmy Buffett and Steve Goodman

from the album Last Mango in Paris


Lyrics

Lola loves Frank, Frankie loves Lola
On their second honeymoon in Pensacola
Tryin’ to find a little privacy, oh me
There’d been too much screamin’ fussin’ and fightin’
The doggies were yellin the children were bitin’
Frank and Lola tryin’ to get together again

So he took her to this movie called “Body Heat”
She said “The Junior Mints were mushy and the sex was neat
Oh my, Frankie weren’t we better than that before our spat”
Frankie told Lola, “Honey, can’t you see that I’ll jump start you if
you’ll kick start me”
Frankie and Lola, tryin’ to get together again

So they strolled along the highway, they walked along the beach
They stopped at several raw bars where they slurped a dozen each
Bought a bunch of popcorn from the fat man on the dock
Baby, turn back the pages, turn round the clock

Lola told Frank, “Time we put it to the test”
After Frankie told Lola she was still the best
They fell asleep in the sand underneath the Florida moon in June
Lola counted rainbows, Frankie counted sheep
Til they almost got run over by the lifeguards’ jeep
Frank and Lola tryin’ to get together again

Go, Frank, go
Lola, Lo
Go Frank, go, wow

So they strolled along the highway, they walked along the beach
They stopped at several raw bars where they slurped a dozen each
Bought a bunch of popcorn from the fat man on the dock
Baby, turn back the pages, turn round the clock

Lola loves Frank, Frankie loves Lola
On their second honeymoon in Pensacola
Trying to find a little priva
Trying to find a little priva
Trying to find a little privacy

Go, Frank, go
Lola, lo
Go, Mango

Jimmy’s Note:

Lola is another tough rhyme. Sometimes when you’re trying to find it, the rhyme is right under your nose. Pensacola was across the state line, and it rhymed. See? There’s nothing to it. Lucy and Ricky, Fred and Ethel, Laurel and Hardy, Spanky and Buckwheat, Rocky and Bullwinkle, and Frank and Lola…they’re all good for a laugh.
