Only the Frensky

Only the Frensky is track 12 from the album Arthur's Really Rockin' Music Mix. It is an entirely original song, not based on any story from the Arthur TV show. The song is in the style of jazz and is about Francine Frensky singing about her greatness, backed with instrumentals by her friends, until they get upset with her putdowns and she comes to realize that she needs their help as much as she needs herself.

Lyrics

Francine

Your team is losing a hundred to six
You couldn't score if you called in the Knicks
That crazy clock is tickin'
You think? You really stink!

You hear a whisper as something shoots by
A blur, a swish and boom, it's a tie!
The buzzer buzzes, oh wow, you've won, but how?

Only the Frensky can save the day
Don't take offense-ky, just do it my way
Oh, my Frensky, you have, have, have to agree
Who needs you, when you've got me?


You make a record that's totally drab
About as pleasant as picking a scab
The music floats out above you
Like flocks of iron rocks
The strings all sing like a mean alley cat
The brass all flash but eugh, are they flat!
But who's that drummer?
Guess what, she saved your neck!

Only the Frensky can save the day
Don't take offense-ky, just do it my way
Oh, my Frensky, you have, have, have to agree
Who needs you, when you've got me?

Hey, where are you guys going?

Arthur

We're sick of you singing about how great you are.

Francine

Well, what's wrong with that?

Binky

Nothing. If you want the song to be a drum solo.

Muffy

Forget it, Arthur. You're wasting your time. Francine has no what it's like to be a person and have feelings.

Francine

Hey, hey, hey. That's not nice. I do too. How do you think I felt when you guys just abandoned me?

Muffy

Probably not happy, but, see, that's how we feel when you tell us we sound bad.

Francine

I guess it wasn't that out of tune.

Binky

I was playing jazz notes.

Francine

Oh, really? I guess I wasn't paying attention. I'm sorry. Can you guys come back? We'll do it one more time. I won't be bossy. I promise.

Muffy

I don't know.

Francine

I'll be good.

Binky

Oh well. I guess, we could.

Francine

Come on, everybody. Let's show 'em what we got.
Only the Frensky

Muffy

Oh no!

Binky

Here we go!

Francine

Isn't much of a band!

Binky

Whoa!

Buster

Whaddya know?

Francine

A group of just me is kind of bland
And all my friends
I have, have, have to agree
I need you as much as you... need... me!
Oh yeah!
