BENYOMIN'S ENDEARING NAME 

Bennie, bennie, play me a little song,
what the girl wants.
The girl wants to have a little dress,
one must go tell the tailor.
- No, Mommy, no,
you can't understand me.
You don't know what I mean.
I have a bad Mom
and she can't understand me.

Bennie, bennie, play me a little song,
what the girl wants.
The girl wants to have a pair of shoes,
one must go tell the shoemaker.
- No, Mommy, no,
you can't understand me.
You don't know what I mean.
I have a bad Mom
and she can't understand me.

Bennie, bennie, play me a little song,
what the girl wants.
The girl wants to have a little(endearing) groom,
one must go tell the matchmaker.
- Yes, Mommy, yes,

I have a good Mom
and now she can understand me.
