Oh! Where did it all go?

So Why Should I?

In a Quaint Cabaret


In a quaint cabaret on the left bank of the Seine,
 lovers danced and swayed to the music of the day.

As soon as he and she came into that
 smoked filled hall…
their watery eyes met across the dance
 hall floor, and that was the beginning
of their torrid love, which was destined
to explode for sure!

They lived, loved, and fought equally
so, until one day he found another to
dance and sway and make love to
all day.

When she found them together dancing
the day away in that quaint cabaret…
she pulled out a forty-four and shot
 him dead on that dance hall floor.

Until this day in that quaint cabaret
they still sing…

“Frankie and Johnnie were lovers!”
