C
Come on everybody! I say now let's play a game.
         F                          C
I betcha I can make a rhyme, out of anybody's name.
          F                              C
The first letter of the name, I treat it like it wasn't there.
      F               C
But a B or an F or an M will appear.
C
And then I say Bo add a B then I say the name and 

Bonana fanna and a Fo.
    F
And then I say the name again with an F, very plain,
      C
and a Fee Fy and a Mo.
    F
And then I say the name again with an M this time,
          C
and there isn't any name that I can't rhyme.

CHORUS:
C
Arnold!
C
Arnold, Arnold bo Barnold Bonana fanna fo Farnold,
F            C
Fee fy mo Marnold..Arnold!

#2.
C
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.
    F
For Mary, Mary drop the M's Mo Ary.
C
That's the only rule that is contrary.

#3.
C
Okay? Now say Bo: Bo!

Now Tony with a B: Bony!

Then Bonana Fanna Fo: Bonana Fanna Fo.
                                    F
Then you say the name again with an F very plain: Fony..
       C
Then a Fee Fy and a Mo: Fee Fy Mo.
         F                                       C
Then you say the name again with an M this time: Mony!
C
And there isn't any name that you can't rhyme.

OUTRO:
C
Every body do Tony! (Rhyme.)Pretty good, let's do Billy!(Rhyme.)

Very good, let's do Marsha! (Ryhme.)A little trick with Nick!(Rhyme.)

The name game...(Fade.)


A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
