Examples of bobby in a Sentence

  1. Kenny Rogers:

    It’s a totally different show than I’ve done before, it’s a linear look at my career. I start in 1954 when I was with a group called the Scholars back when I was in high school. We then go to the Bobby Doyle Trio, the New Christy Minstrels, the First Edition and then my solo career. It’s been really good for me.

I'm a tall drink of water, don't want to wrinkle anything.
