Bingo and 'Another World', that's all I ever hear,
It's gettin' so I can't sit home, and enjoy a bottle of beer;
'Tween Rachael and the jackpot, I'm slowly going mad,
I've seen some people before possessed, but girl, you got it bad.

It all got started Saturday nights, and things got out of hand,
You couldn't watch the Maple Leafs, you weren't a hockey fan;
Now I'm not saying that you're wrong, or all together right,
But when you put your makeup on, there's a bingo game tonight.

I didn't mind one night a week, or sometimes even two,
But now it's every chance you get, and your mother goes with you;
Next you'll have your sisters, or anyone else who'll go,
It must be awful thrilling to hear someone say, "Bingo!"

I'd like to see the jackpot you're always going to win,
I guess it didn't go tonight, you donated once again;
Just think what money we'd have in the bank, and the interest it would grow,
If you'd only stay home a couple of nights, and forget that damn bingo.

You sit and watch 'Another World' while supper's in the pan,
You can bet your bottom dollar that it's something from a can;
Dessert's the same again tonight: custard and runny Jello,
You have to hurry supper so you won't miss your Bingo.

You say it's just part of your day to sit and watch TV,
I'll bet that Rachael don't starve Mack, the way that you starve me;
You're always down on Iris, you say she's cruel and mean,
I wish that I could be like her, and I'd break that TV screen.

Bingo and 'Another World', that's all I ever hear,
It's gettin' so I can't sit home, and enjoy a bottle of beer;
'Tween Rachael and the jackpot, I'm slowly going mad,
I've seen some people before possessed, but girl, you got it bad.
