Shirley Shirley bo burley
Banana fana fo firley

SHIRLEY!

Lincoln Lincoln bo bincoln
Banana fana fo fincoln

LINCOLN!

C'mon everybody, YEAH!
I said let's play a game
I betcha I can make a rhyme
Out of anybody's name.

The first letter of the name
I'll treat it like it wasn't there
But if a "B" or an "F" ever will appear
Then I say a fo and a fi and I say the name
Banana fano and fo
And then i say the name again

And I say the name again
With an "M" this time
There isn't a name
That I can't rhyme.

Arnold Arnold bo barnold
Banana fano fo farnold
Fe fi mo marnold
ARNOLD!

But if the first two letters
Are ever the same
Drop them both
And say the name

Like Bob, Bob drop the "B" spells ob
or Fran, Fran drop the "f" spells ran
or Mary, Mary drop the "M" spells ary
That's the only rule that is contrary.

Now let's say Divi, Divi!
Now Divi with a "B", Bivi!
Then banana fana fo, banana fana fo!
Then you say the name again with an "F", very plain, Fivi!
Fe fi then mo, and fe fi then mo
Then you say the name again with an "M" this time, Mivi!

And there isn't any name that I can't rhyme
Now do Divi!

Divi Divi bo bivi
Banana fana fo fivi
Fe fi mo mivi
DIVI!

Let's do Marsha
Marsha Marsha bo barsha
Banana fana fo farsha
Fe fi mo marsha
MARSHA!

A little trick with Dick
Dick Dick bo bick
Banana fana fo fick
Fe fi mo mick
DICK!
