He came from nothing, they tried them all
You gotta live low before you see them fall
Always a loser, he lost his shine
They had no idea what kept the beast alive

Cause Frankie's gonna be alright
Yeah Frankie's gonna be alright
They said he was broke and never coming back
But Frankie's gonna be alright

He swore to show them, outlast them all
And someday they would see him standing tall
He'd never give in, no not back down
I hope they never give up on his sound

Cause Frankie's gonna be alright
Yeah Frankie's gonna be alright
They said he was old and couldn't hold a tune
But Frankie's gonna be alright

Cause Frankie's gonna be alright
Yeah Frankie's gonna be alright
They said they'd be placing roses on his grave
But Frankie's gonna be alright

Frankie don't give up on yourself
You heard the voice inside
Frankie don't give up on yourself
Only you can save your life
(x2)

He came from nothing, he tried them all
You gotta live low before you see them fall
Always a loser, he lost his shine
They had no idea what kept the beast alive

Cause Frankie's gonna be alright
Yeah Frankie's gonna be alright

They said they'd be placing roses on his grave
But Frankie's gonna be alright
(x2)

Yeah Frankie's gonna be alright
