Name Game - Laura Branigan



Come on everybody

I say now let's play a game

I bet you I can make a rhyme

out of anybody's name


The first letter of the name

I treat you 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 a 'Fo'

And then 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



OK Let's do Tony!

Tony, Tony

Bo-Bony, Bonana

Fanna Fo-Fony

Fee Fi

Mo-Mony


Tony!



Now was good, Let's try Katie!

Katie Katie

Bo-Batie, Bonana

Fanna Fo-Fatie

Fee Fi

Mo-Matie


Katie!



But if the first two letters are ever the same
You drop them both then say the name


Like Bob, Bob, drop the 'B's go Bo-bo
Or Hugh, Hugh, drop the 'H' go "ugh"


Mary, Mary, drop the 'M' Mo-Mary
That's the only rule that is contrary



OK 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 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
