ANDY BELL
"Bingo Hall Baby"
(Ashton / Bayliss / Frost)

[Bingo Caller:]
Eyes down now for your main session bingo

Bingo Hall Baby's life after 10
Sat watching TV's "Late Night Late" again
Never had a boyfriend, never seen the world
While calling out the numbers on the winner takes it all

Oh, don't forget there'll be a perk next week
Tesco store voucher for a tin of corned beef!
Calling numbers makes you feel like Meryl Streep
You call the 'eyes down', stop when 'full house' is shrieked

You're a Bingo Hall Baby
Where 'two fat ladles' make your day
You're a Bingo Hall Baby
Hiding your 'legs eleven' away

Used to be a cinema once don't you know
No furtive encounters now on this back row
No change of programme, it's always the same show
Clean around the toilets dear, then you can go home

[Bingo Caller:]
Interval cash bingo, y'know the ropes ladies, four in a row, vertical, horizontal, diagonal or the four corners. Away we go.

They slobber stories and fake their bonhomie
They've lost ten quid, but won a pound you see
The bingo caller's the Goddess in whom they all believe
And she fell in love with me for a couple of weeks

You're a Bingo Hall Baby
Where 'two fat ladies' make your day
You're a Bingo Hall Baby
Hiding your 'legs eleven' away

Hiding your 'legs eleven' away

[Bingo Caller:]
That's your lot, don't forget tomorrow our early bird special; a cup of tea and a slice of cake, free for all of you joining us 15 minutes before the afternoon session. Get home safely now, goodnight!
