'Bingo'
Nursery rhyme
Songwriter(s)Unknown

'Bingo', also known as 'Bingo Was His Name-O', 'There Was a Farmer Who Had a Dog', or informally 'B-I-N-G-O', is an English language children's song of obscure origin. Additional verses are sung by omitting the first letter sung in the previous verse and clapping instead of actually saying the word. It has a Roud Folk Song Index number of 589.

Lyrics[edit]

The contemporary version generally goes as follows:[1]

There was a farmer who had a dog,
and Bingo was his name-o.

Earlier forms[edit]

The earliest reference to any form of the song is from the title of a piece of sheet music published in 1780, which attributed the song to William Swords, an actor at the Haymarket Theatre of London.[2][3] Early versions of the song were variously titled 'The Farmer's Dog Leapt o'er the Stile', 'A Franklyn's Dogge', or 'Little Bingo'.

An early transcription of the song (without a title) dates from the 1785 songbook 'The Humming Bird',[4] and reads: This is how most people know the traditional children's song:

The farmer's dog leapt over the stile,
his name was little Bingo,
the farmer's dog leapt over the stile,
his name was little Bingo.
B with an I — I with an N,
N with a G — G with an O;
his name was little Bingo:
B—I—N—G—O!
His name was little Bingo.
The farmer loved a cup of good ale,
he called it rare good stingo,
the farmer loved a cup of good ale,
he called it rare good stingo.
S—T with an I — I with an N,
N with a G — G with an O;
He called it rare good stingo:
S—T—I—N—G—O!
He called it rare good stingo
And is this not a sweet little song?
I think it is —— by jingo.
And is this not a sweet little song?
I think it is —— by jingo.
J with an I — I with an N,
N with a G — G with an O;
I think it is —— by jingo:
J—I—N—G—O!
I think it is —— by jingo.

A similar transcription exists from 1840, as part of The Ingoldsby Legends, the transcribing of which is credited in part to a 'Mr. Simpkinson from Bath'. This version drops several of the repeated lines found in the 1785 version and the transcription uses more archaic spelling and the first lines read 'A franklyn's dogge' rather than 'The farmer's dog'.[5] A version similar to the Ingoldsby one (with some spelling variations) was also noted from 1888.[6]

The presence of the song in the United States was noted by Robert M. Charlton in 1842.[7] English folklorist Alice Bertha Gomme recorded eight forms in 1894. Highly-differing versions were recorded in Monton, Shropshire, Liphook and Wakefield, Staffordshire, Nottinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Derbyshire and Enborne. All of these versions were associated with children's games, the rules differing by locality.[8] Early versions of 'Bingo' were also noted as adult drinking songs.[9]

Variations on the lyrics refer to the dog variously as belonging to a miller or a shepherd, and/or named 'Bango' or 'Pinto'. In some variants, variations on the following third stanza are added:

Bingo

The farmer loved a pretty young lass,
and gave her a wedding-ring-o.
R with an I — I with an N,
N with a G — G with an O;
(etc.)

This stanza is placed before or substituted for the stanza starting with 'And is this not a sweet little song?'

Versions that are variations on the early version of 'Bingo' have been recorded in classical arrangements by Frederick Ranalow (1925), John Langstaff (1952), and Richard Lewis (1960). Under the title 'Little Bingo', a variation on the early version was recorded twice by folk singer Alan Mills, on Animals, Vol. 1 (1956) and on 14 Numbers, Letters, and Animal Songs (1972).

The song should not be confused with the 1961 UK hit pop song 'Bingo, Bingo (I'm In Love)' by Dave Carey, which originated as a jingle for radio station Radio Luxembourg.

Timing Tips:

How long a bingo game lasts depends on what pace you read the clues at and how many players you have. If you read faster, such as for older or more experienced students, or if you have more players, the game tends to end more quickly. In general, I suggest allocating between twenty and thirty minutes to a bingo game. Since they can potentially end as early as the fourth word called, though that is quite rare, I encourage you to keep playing in the event of the game being over earlier than you expected it to be. Almost 90% of bingo games with a 25 word list and 25 players will see their first bingo within 7 to 11 words being called.
