VERSE 01: When I was a tiny pick, say just bout so years old,/The folks nick named me “Buddy” that is so I have been told,/I spent most of my younger days with Gran’mom and Gran’pop,/And Gran’ma used to always call me, “Granny’s choc’late drop,”/Now “Choc’late drop,” and “Buddy” seemed to stick to me somehow,/Then someone added “Bon Bon,”/So here’s what they call me now.
CHORUS: Bon Bon Buddy the chocolate drop,/Dat’s me,/Bon Bon Buddy is all that I want to be/I’ve gained no fame but I ain’t ‘shame/I’m satisfied with my nick name,/Bon Bon Buddy the chocolate drop,/Dat’s me./me.
VERSE 02: I think sometimes to myself, you was a lucky boy,/To get a nice nick name and then be Gran’ma’s pride and joy,/There was one boy in our town, they called him ugly Will,/There was another one I know they called him, stubborn Phil,”/Then there was one called “Dummy Smith” and one called Baby Blue,”/And they all used to tell me, “Bud it’s pretty soft for you.”
