Common everybody
I say now lets now play a game
I bet you 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
Then I say
Bo - add a 'b' and then I say the name
Banana fanna and foe
And then I say the name again with an 'f' very plain
Then a fee fie and moe
And then I say the name again with an 'm' this time
And there isn't any name that I can't rhyme

Anl
Anl, Anl
Bo, Banl
Banna, Fanna, Foe, Fanl
Fee, Fie, Moe, Manl
Anl

But if the first two letters are ever the same
I drop them both then say the name
Like bob
Bob drop the 'b' bo ob
Or fred
Fred drop the 'f' Foe red
Or Mary
Mary, drop the 'm's Moe Ary
That's the only rule that is contrary

O.K
Now say Bo
Bo
Now tony with a B
Bony
Then Banna Fanna and Foe
Banna Fanna and Foe
Then you say the name again
With an f very plain
Fony
Then a fee fie and a mo
Fee, Fie, Moe
Then you same the name again
With an m this time
Mony
And there isn't any name you can't rhyme

Everybody do Tony
