I hope that this is the Name Game song you mean! The Name Game Shirley Ellis The name game! Shirley! Shirley, Shirley bo Birley Bonana fanna fo Firley Fee fy mo Mirley, Shirley! Lincoln! Lincoln, Lincoln bo Bincoln Bonana fanna fo Fincoln Fee fy mo Mincoln, Lincoln! 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 or an F or an M will appear And then I say bo add a B then I say the name and Bonana fanna and a fo And then I say the name again with an F very plain and a fee fy 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 Barnold Bonana fanna fo Farnold Fee fy mo Marnold Arnold! But if the first two letters are ever the same, I drop them both and say the name like Bob, Bob drop the B's Bo ob For Fred, Fred drop the F's Fo red For Mary, Mary drop the M's Mo ary That's the only rule that is contrary. Okay? Now say Bo: Bo Now Tony with a B: Bony Then Bonana fanna fo: bonana fanna fo Then you say the name again with an F very plain: Fony Then a fee fy and a mo: fee fy mo Then you say the name again with an M this time: Mony And there 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! Sheesh! Your grandson must be a wizard to get his tongue round that!

Thank you so very very much you don't know how happy i am All three of my grandchildren know the words and it is the only song i cant sing with them . My youngest grandson is not sure of some of the words and gets upset when the other 2 sing it and he cant sing all of it or gets mixed up so now we can learn it together and surprise my other grandkids .Once again a very big thanks
