    Lyrics

    The first time I saw her
    I couldn't be sure
    But the sin of impatience
    Said "She's just what you're looking for"
    So I walked right up to her
    And with the part of me that talks
    I introduced myself as Frank
    From New York
    New York

    She's so hot
    She's so cool
    I'm not
    I'm just a fool in love with Darling Lorraine

    All my life I've been a wanderer
    Not really, I mostly lived near my parents home
    Anyway Lorraine and I got married
    Ant the usual marriage stuff
    Then one day she says to me
    From out of the blue
    Frank, I've had enough
    Romance is a heartbreaker
    I'm not meant to be a homemaker
    And I'm tired of being Darling Loraine

    What – you don't love me anymore?
    What – you're walking out the door?
    What – you don't like the way I chew?
    Hey let me tell you
    You're not the woman that I wed
    You say you're depressed but you're not
    You just like to stay in bed
    I don't need you darling Lorraine
    Darling Lorraine
    Lorraine
    I long for your love

    Financially Speaking
    I guess I'm a washout
    Everybody's buy and sell
    And sell and buy and
    And that's what the whole thing's all about
    If it had not been Lorraine
    I'd have left her long ago
    I should have been a musician
    I love the piano

    She's so light
    She's so free
    I'm tight, well, that's me
    But I feel so good
    With Darling Lorraine

    On Christmas morning Frank awakes
    To find Loraine has made a stack of pancakes
    They watch the television, husband and wife
    All afternoon "It's a wonderful life"

    What – you don't love me anymore?
    What – you're walking out the door?
    What – you don't like the way I chew?
    Hey let me tell you
    You're not the woman that I wed
    Gimme my robe I'm going back to bed
    I'm sick to death of you Lorraine

    Darling Lorraine
    Lorraine
    Her hands like wood
    The doctor was smiling
    But the news wasn't good

    Darling Lorraine
    Please don't leave me yet
    I know you're in pain
    Pain you can't forget
    Your breathing is like an echo of our love
    Maybe I'll go down to the corner store
    And buy us something sweet
    Here's an extra blanket honey
    To wrap around your feet
    All the trees were washed with april rain
    And the moon in the meadow
    Took Darling Lorraine
