Separate names with a comma.

This was a a tear jerker when I was young!
This is the version I remember:
Now here is one that I was happy to forget!
I think we need lyrics for that one!
"The Name Game"
The name game!
Shirley, Shirley bo Birley Bonana fanna fo Firley
Fee fy mo Mirley, Shirley!
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
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 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!
The name game
I can sure live without the Name song, too, Richard ! I remember it; and didn't miss that one a bit when it faded away.
Frankie Laine, on the other hand; I always liked. When i was little, my most favorite song was "Mule Train" , sang by Frankie Laine.
Walter Brennan had a big hit with Dutchman's Gold, and maybe a couple more that he sang; but they are not played much anymore either.
Nice reminder of some great songs
My Mother's favorite Frankie Laine song was "I'll take care of your cares, for you-oo"!
Many have mimicked Slim with those memorable words "when I'm calling you"
Here's a beautiful Ray Steven's version! ...No...really!
This has always been one of my favorites and featured in a few movies as well. It is difficult not to like it no matter who sings it! Makes me feel alive!
Val, what a sad tune . I want to say more, but it really knocked me out. If I were a druggie, I'd make a dash for some uppers!
That's London for you Richard but it's not all misery. Some escape
Ralph McTell featured on a BBC4 programme about 'one-hit wonders' recently. Streets of London must have been about the biggest one-hit wonder ever. The strange thing is that it's actually about Paris rather than London, but he changed the title!
...not the same song, but here are the streets of Paris.
Keeping in tune (PUN) with the recent sad songs on this post, here is one that I love singing at karaoke clubs! And it is always well received because most of my audience do not speak English! No rocks come flying but an occasional drink!
How anyone could forget this is beyond me
My dear friend Joe. And I thought we were getting along so well. I even thought we might be great friends, but now I find that you know all of the words to that dreaded song. The next, I am sure, will be the Gilligan's Island song. Instead of avoiding your onslaught of obvious mental debauchery and brutality, I shall pray for you. Dear God in Heaven, Joe needs a lot of help.....Amen.
My post was meant to serve as a guide...a sort of LPS (Lyrical Positional System) to help us wade through the flood of high-speed words. I am grateful for your prayer, Skipper!
Although I only change the flowers and light incense on certain days, I did my ritual a few minutes to add to your prayer!
shades of the sixties creeping in here
LOL, That's funny, Val, actually I was referring to my Buddhist Altar! Now back in the 60's I probably spent more money on incense and related "stuff" then food!
And here is one more song that made it somewhere, but not in my life!
...ain't nothing like a song!
