"Playmate, Come Out & Play with Me" Song Lyrics

You'll be jolly friends forevermore (1, 2, 3, 4) after singing this joyous tune with your grandchildren.

By Author Unknown

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.

Second Verse Courtesy of Vicki Leigh:

So sorry, playmate
I cannot play with you.
My dolly's got the flu.
Can't cry down your rain barrel,
Or slide down your cellar door.
But we'll be jolly friends
Forever more.

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.
Can't climb your rain barrel, (or, Ain't got no rain barrel)
Can't slide your cellar door [or, Ain't got no cellar door)
But we'll be jolly friends forever more.
