The Name Game  Misc. Unsigned Bands

[C]The name game
Shirley, Shirley bo Birley Bonana fanna fo Firley
[F]Fee fie mo Mirley, [C]Shirley
Lincoln, Lincoln bo Bincoln Bonana fanna fo Fincoln
[F]Fee fie mo Mincoln, [C]Lincoln
[C]Come on everybody
I say now let's play a game
I betcha [F]I can make a rhyme out of [C]anybody's name
[C]The first letter of the name, I treat it like it wasn't there
But a [F]B or an F or an M will [C]appear
[C]And then I say bo add a B then I say the name and Bonana fanna and a fo
And then I [F]say the name again with an F very plain
and a [C]fee fie and a mo
And then I [F]say the name again with an M this time
and there [C]isn't any name that I can't rhyme
Arnold, Arnold bo Barnold Bonana fanna fo Farnold
[F]Fee fie mo Marnold [C]Arnold
[C]But if the first two letters are ever the same,
I drop them both and say the name like
[F]Bob, Bob drop the B's Bo ob
For [C]Fred, Fred drop the F's Fo red
For [F]Mary, Mary drop the M's Mo ary
[C]That's the only rule that is contrary.
[C]Okay? Now say Bo: Bo
Now Tony with a B: Bony
Then Bonana fanna fo: bonana fanna fo
Then you [F]say the name again with an F very plain: Fony
[C]Then a fee fie and a mo: fee fie mo
Then you [F]say the name again with an M this time: Mony
And there [C]isn't any name that you can't rhyme

Every body do Tony
Pretty good, let's do Billy
Very good, let's do Marsha
A little trick with Nick
The name game
