Playmate, come out and play with me
Come bring your dollies three
Climb up my apple tree
Climb up my rain barrel
Slide down my cellar door
And we'll be happy friends
For ever more

Playmate, I cannot play with you
My dollie has the flu
Boo hoo hoo hoo
Can't climb your rain barrel
Can't slide your cellar door
But we'll be happy friends
Forever more

note: a 40s rewrite of I Don't Want To Play in Your Yard
