The Lyrics

As featured on the hit TV series "A Very Crass Horror Story: Asinine".
The lame game!

Shirley!
Shirley, Curly bo Burly Banana fanna fo Whirly
Fee fy mo Mirley, Shirley!

Flash!
Flash, Flash bo Bash Bonana fanna fo Lash
Fee fy mo Mash, Flash!

Come on everybody!
I say now let's play a game
It's ridiculously pointless and utterly inane
The first letter of the name, I simply throw it away
And put any letter I think of, it's all the same
And then I say a bunch of letters, repeat the name, don't care if it makes any sense
And then I say the name again with an F very plain
It's so damn dense
And then I say the name again with an M this time
It's a very cheap way to make a rhyme

Chuck!
Chuck, Chuck bo Buck Bonana fanna fo Fu*k
Fee fy mo Muck Chuck!

But if I come across a confusing name
Then things get even more lame, 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
Let's rhyme it with Barry, Harry and Larry

Okay? Now say Bo: Bo
Now Tony with a B: Bony
Then Bonana fanna fo: bonana fanna fo
Then put an F just to keep things interesting: Fony
Then a fee fy and a mo: fee fy mo
Then you say the name again with an M this time: Mony
And like I said, it's a very cheap way to make things rhyme

Everybody do Ke$ha!
Ke$ha, Ke$ha bo Be$ha Bonana fanna fo Fe$ha
Fee fy mo Me$ha, Ke$ha!

Pretty good, let's do Bruno!
Bruno, Bruno bo Runo Bonana fanna fo Fruno
Fee fy mo Mruno, Bruno!

Very good, let's do Robin!
Robin, Robin bo Bobin Bonana fanna fo Fobin
Fee fy mo Mobin, Robin!

Okay, now do Alexander!
Alexander, Alexander bo Balexander Bonana fanna fo Falexander
Fee fy mo Malexander, Alexander!

(gasp!)

Okay, that's enough

The lame game

You beat me to it. The recording I used to hear on the radio sounded like a live performance. I figured it came to an end when someone hollered "Chuck".
