1ST VERSE
[F]Frankly, Mr. Shankly, this po[Am]sition I've[G] held
It [Am]pays my [G]way, and it corr[C]odes my soul
I want to [F]leave, you will not [Am]miss me [G]
I want to [Am]go down in [G]musical his[F]tory [C]
VERSE 2
[F]Frankly, Mr. Shankly, I'm a [Am]sickening[G] wreck
I've got the [Am]21st c[G]entury b[C]reathing down my neck
I must move f[F]ast, you under[Am]stand me [G]
I want to go [Am]down in [G]celluloid [F]history, Mr. Shankly [C]
MIDDLE
VERSE 3
[F]Fame, Fame, fatal [Am]Fame [G]
It can play [Am]hideous [G]tricks on the [C]brain
But still I'd r[F]ather be famous
Than [Am]righteous or [G]holy
[Am]Any day, any [G]day, any [F]day [C]
VERSE 4
But [F]sometimes I'd feel more ful[Am]filled [G]
Making [Am]Christmas card[G]s with the mentally[C] ill
I want to [F]live and I want to [Am]Love [G]
I want to [Am]catch something that [G]I might be a[F]shamed of [C]
VERSE 5
[F]Frankly, Mr. Shankly, this po[Am]sition I've [G]held
It [Am]pays my [G]way and it cor[C]rodes my soul

I didn't [Am]realise you wrote [G]such bloody awful [F]poetry, Mr. Shankly [C]
VERSE 6
[F]Frankly, Mr. Shankly, since y[Am]ou aske[G]d
You are a [Am]flatulent [G]pain in the [C]arse
I didn't [F]mean to be so [Am]rude [G]
Still, I [Am]must speak [G]frankly, Mr. [F]Shankly
Oh, give us your [C]money !
