Songs for Benny and Mo

 

Composed by Sam Gadd in 1951, when his sons Ben and Morgan were five and two.

 

Hear Ben sing both songs

 

 

Song for Benny

 

 

         C

Oh, my name is Benny

 

        F                     G7

And Benny is my name

 

     Stay with G7

When I am naughty

 

                                          C

They flush me down the drain

 

                     C7           F

When I am good, we play a little game

 

   G

They say to me

 

                                        C

Now what can be your name

 

 

Repeat ad infinitum


 

Song for Mo

 

Composed by Sam Gadd in 1951, when Ben’s brother Morgan was two. Like most toddlers of that age, Mo would  respond to nearly any request with “no.”

 

                     C

My name is Mo

 

                    G

Wherever I go

 

Stay with G

All I can say is

 

 C

No
