    Uhm, I don't know if there is a tab for this, because I don't know what it's called. But you know that name thing where you take a persons name you're like uhm, "matt matt bo batt banana fanna fo fat, me my mo matt, MATT" I just thought that would be cool to play on a bass. So if anyone could help, that'd be cool. Thanks!

    The Name Game
    by: Laura Branigan

    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

    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!

    Tony, Tony
    Bo, Bony
    Banana, Fanna, Foe. Fony
    Fee, Fie, Moe, Mony
    Tony

    pretty good, let's do Billy,

    Billy, Billy
    Bo, illy
    Banana, Fanna, Foe. Filly
    Fee, Fie, Moe, Milly
