lyrics

A bummed out Frank the Frog, yeah,
he says, “Life’s a big joke.”
He mumbles to the smog, “Yeah,
it might as well be smoke.”
He kicks a plastic bag, yeah,
it wraps around his foot.
He’s deep in the drag, yeah,
thoughts covered in soot.

Benny turns the corner;
Frank is in sight.
He says, “What’s the matter Franky boy?
Are you alright?”

He says, “I’m all fucked up now.
I know life’s just a joke
and there is no punchline to be found.
I might as well just croak.”
He fumbles with his zipper
and Benny steals a glance
at Frank’s hollow eyes now
and Frank adjusts his pants.
“Now Frank let me tell you,
if life is a joke
then shouldn’t you be laughing?
Don’t be a mope.”
