Branigan, Laura - Name Game Lyrics

Come on everybody I say now lets play a game
I betcha I can make a rhyme, out of anybody's name
The first letter of the name I treat it like it wasn't there
But a 'B' or an 'F' or an 'M' will appear
And then I say "Bo" add a 'B' then I say the name
Then "Bonana Fanna" and "Foe"
And then I say the name again with an 'F' very plain
then a "Fee Fi" and "Mo"
And then I say the name again with an 'M' this time
And there isn't any name that I can't rhyme

O.K. Let's do Tony!
Tony, Tony Bo-Bony Bonana Fanna Fo-Fony Fee-Fi-Mo Mony
Now was good Let's try Katie!
Katie Katie Bo-Batie Bonana Fanna Fo-Fatie Fee-Fi- Mo Matie
But if the first two letters are ever the same
You drop them both then say the name
Like Bob, Bob drop the 'B' Bo-Ob
Or Hugh Hugh drop the 'H' go "Oooo"
Mary, Mary, drop the 'M's Mo-Ary
That's the only rule that is contrary

O.K. everybody
Now say Bo, Bo!
Now Tony with a B, Bony!
Now Bonana Fanna Fo, Bonana Fanna Fo!
Then you say the name again with an 'F' very plain, Fony!
Then a Fee Fi and a Mo Fee-Fi and Mo!
Then you say the name with an 'M' this time, Mony!
There isn't any name that I can't rhyme

Let's do Doug!
Doug, Doug Bo-Boug Bonana Fanna Fo-Foug Fee-Fi-Mo Moug
Now you got it, Joanie!
Joanie, Joanie Bo-Bonie Bonana Fanna Fo-Fonie Fee-Fi-Mo Monie
A little trick with Rick!
Rick, Rick Bo-Bick Bonana Fanna Fo-Fick Fee-Fi-Mo Mick

But if the first two letters are ever the same
You drop them both then say the name
Like Bob, Bob drop the 'B' Bo-Ob
Or Hugh Hugh drop the 'H' go "Oooo"
Mary, Mary, drop the 'M's Mo-Ary
That's the only rule that is contrary

O.K. everybody
Let's try David!
David, David Bo-Bavid Bonana Fanna Fo-Favid Fee-Fi-Mo Mavid
That was great, try Larry!
Larry, Larry Bo-Barry Bonana Fanna Fo-Farry Fee-Fi-Mo Marry
Ok, now try Linda!
Linda, Linda Bo-Binda Bonana Fanna Fo-Finda Fee-Fi-Mo Minda
A little trick with Nick
Nick, Nick Bo-Bick Bonana Fanna Fo-Fick Fee-Fi-Mo Mick
