COME, PLAY WITH ME.
Copyright, 1896, by Francis. Day & Hunter.

I have not been here very long, as yet I'm quite a stranger.
And so to try an English song may seem, perhaps, a danger.
One thing I ask, a favor slight, I hope you'll not refuse me.
That if I don't pronounce it right, you Kindly will excuse me. [me.
I'm fond of games and romps, you see, I wish you'd come and play with

Chorus
For I have such a way with me.
A way with me, a way with me;
I have such a nice little way with me.
Do not think It wrong.
I should like you to play with me.
To play with me, to play with me;
I wish you'd come and play with me.
Play with me all the day long.

I have a friend, a nice young man, who likes to linger near me.
And when I told him of my plan, he said he'd come and hear me.
He told me I need fear no fright, that there would be no danger.
He said the song would be all right, although I was a stranger;
But now my friend I cannot see, he won't come out and play with me.

Chorus.
Tho' I have such a way with me.
A way with me. a way with me;
I have such a nice little way with me.
Do not think It wrong.
He won't come out and play with me.
And play with me, and play with me;
He won't come out and play with me.
Flay with me all the day long.

He promised he'd be in his place, he promised, too, to cheer me;
He said that I should see his face, and know that he was near me;
But courage! though he Is not here, there Is not any danger,
You are my friends, I need not fear, although I am a stranger.
Ah: there he is, my friend, I see-will you come out and play with me.

Chorus.
For I have such a way with me,
A way with me, a way with me;
I have such a nice little way with me,
Do not think It wrong.
Will you come out and play with me.
And play with me, and play with me;
Will you come out and play with me,
And play with me all the day long.
