The Name Game

The name game
Seanie!
Seanie, Seanie, bo-ba-nee
Bo-na-na fan-na, fo-fa-nee
Fee fi mo-ma-nee
Seanie!

Katie!
Katie, Katie, bo-ba-tee
Bo-na-na fan-na, fo-fa-nee
Fee fi mo-may-tee
Katie!

Now, come on everybody
I say now let's 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" of an "F,"
Or an "M" will appear
And then say "bo"
Add a "B" then I say the name
Then "bo- na- na, fana" and "fo"
And they I say the name again
With an "F" very plain,
Then a "fee fi" and a "mo."
And then I say the name again
With an "M" this time
And there isn't any name
That I can't rhyme

Arnold!
Arnold, Arnold, bo-bar-nold
Bo-na-na, fan-na fo-far-nold,
Fee fi mo-mar-nold
Arnold!

But if the first two letter
Are ever the same
Drop the both,
Then say the name
Like Bob, Bob
Drop the "B's," bo-ob
Or Fred, Fred
Drop the "F's," fo- red
Mary, Mary
Drop the "M's," mo- rar- y
That's the only rule
That is contrary

Say "Bo"
(Bo)
Now Tony with a "B"
(Bony)
Now bo-na-na, fan-na and fo
(Bo-na-na, fan-na fo)
Now you say the name again
With an "F," very plain
Then a fee, fi and a mo
And then you say the name again
With an "M" this time
And there isn't any name
That you can't rhyme

Tony!
Tony, Tony, bo-bon-ey
Bo-na-na fan-na fo-fo-ney
Fee fi mo money
Tony!

Marsha!
Marsha, Marsha, bo-bar-sha
Bo-na-na fan-na fo-far-sha
Fee fi mo-ar-sha
Marsha!
