OH PLAYMATE, COME OUT & PLAY WITH ME (Words and music by Saxie Dowell) The Playmates There's a catchy little tune a floatin' through the air, You hear it here and there, They sing it ev'ry where How it started, where it started seems nobody knows. But what's the diff'rence where it came from, here's the way it goes Oh PLAYMATE, come out and play with me And bring your dollies three. Climb up my apple tree, Look down my rain barrel Slide down my cellar door And we'll be jolly friends forever more. It was a rainy day, She couldn't come out to play, With tearful eyes and tender sighs I could hear her say: I'm sorry Playmate, I cannot play with you My dollies have the flu, Boo-hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo. Ain't got no rain barrel, Ain't got no cellar door But we'll be jolly friends forever more.
