Don't call me red, don't turn me down, I've got a plan.
Richard Neutra is my friend, and he's the man.
He's been to school and he can see what's best for all of you.
Please trust me, my name is Frank, don't turn me down.
Don't call me red.

Every church has its prophets and its elders.
God will love you if you just play ball, that's right.
Fritz Burns, Chief Parker, and J Edgar.
I outlived those bastards after all.

We survived those dark days full of danger.
In the end fate has been good to me.
If you're in the neighbourhood, stranger,
You're welcome to drop in and see.
My name is Frank, don't turn me down.

Don't call me red.
