lyrics

From the heart of New York City
There rose a great hurrah
When Governor Cuomo
Signed the new bill into law

Cheers of great elation
The pop of champagne corks
The sounds of celebration
Filled the sidwalks of New York

When he heard this, Frankie
Got down on bended knee
And asked his partner Johnny
Darling, will you marry me?

We will be so happy
It would be sublime
To celebrate our nuptials
In the good old summertime

From the East Side to the West Side
Finally now you're free
To wed your tootsie wootsie
Whatever sex they be

And down in Greenwich Village
Wedding bells will chime
When Frankie and Johnny get married
We'll have a gay old time

(Musical interlude)

When they rose next morning
They set the wedding date
And then they bohth went marching
In this year's gay pride parade

Later on that evening
They changed their Facebook page
And updated their status
From "partners" to "engaged"

From the East Side to the West Side
Finally now you're free
To wed your tootsie wootsie
Whatever sex they be

And down in Greenwich Village
Wedding bells will chime
When Frankie and Johnny get married
We'll have a gay old time
A gay old time
