DON'T PLAY BINGO TONIGHT, MOTHER (Al Harvey / Bert Pearl) The Happy Gang - 1946 A little girl sat on her daddy's knee Holding her broken doll Her mother was fixing herself for a spree Down at the community hall And as that old wood fire died She looked at her mother and cried Don't play bingo tonight, mother Stay home with daddy and me Don't play bingo tonight, mother We need your company Poor daddy sits nightly with tears in his eyes Just wond'ring if you will come home with first prize Don't play bingo tonight, mother Stay home with daddy and me The poor father sat in his khaki suit A corporal he was, no less (No more!) He looked at his missus and loudly he cried "Now, listen to reason, dear Bess This is my last leave, you know And tomorrow to battle I go" So don't play bingo tonight, mother Stay home with daughter and me Don't play bingo tonight, mother We need your company My schoolgirl complexion I never will keep 'Cause you holler "Bingo!" all night in your sleep Don't play bingo tonight, mother Stay home with daughter and me Then mother said, "Maybe I should stay home" Knowing full well she should. Then she looked at her husband and her little daughter and she cried "I wouldn't go now if I could At last I have heard duty's call To heck with the game at the hall!" I won't play bingo tonight, daughter I'll stay with daddy and you I won't play bingo tonight, daughter I've something much better to do I'll turn on the radio and stay in this room Because it's now time for Sinatra to croon She won't play bingo tonight, no! She's going to stay home and swoon (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - December 2012)
