The Get Up Kids' cover on the compilation I Love Metal
Josh plays keyboards

Frankie died just the other night
Some say it was suicide
But we know how the story goes

With his 6-string knife
And his street-wise pride
The boy was a man before his time
And she knew all their dreams would come true

Ya see Frankie was fast
He was too fast ya know
He wouldn't go slow until his lethal dose
And she knows he'd finally come too close

On with the show
Goin on with the show
Come on baby no no no
On with the show
Goin on with the show
Come on baby no no no

He was bad - he was never good
But one thing that he understand
And she knew all these lies would come true

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

On with the show
Goin on with the show
Come on baby no no no
On with the show
Goin on with the show
Come on baby no no no

Stuck on a dime with a switch-blade 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

On with the show
Goin on with the show
Come on baby no no no
On with the show
Goin on with the show
Come on baby no no no
