Lyrics

There was a farmer had a dog
And Bingo was his name-o
B-I-N-G-O, B-I-N-G-O, B-I-N-G-O
And Bingo was his name-o


Circle game

Formation: Students standing in a circle around one student (“It”). For the first 4 measures, students hold hands and circle to the right around “It.” On measure 5, they stop moving. “It” sings “B” and points to a student to sing the next letter. The student standing to the right of that student sings the next letter until the last “O” is sung (at the end of the song). That student becomes the next “It.” (source: Kerr’s Guild of Play, 1912)
