Playmate (Come Out and Play With Me)

Hey, hey, oh playmate,
Come out and play with me.
You’ll bring your dollies three,
Climb up my apple tree.
Cry down my rain barrel,
Slide down my cellar door.
And we’ll be jolly friends
Forever more.

So sorry, playmate
I cannot play with you.
My dolly’s go the flu.
Boo-hoo-oo-oo-oo.
Can’t cry down your rain barrel,
Or slide down your cellar door.
But we’ll be jolly friends
For ever more.
