SEE SEE MY PLAYMATE

THIS SONG WAS SUNG WHILE PLAYING A GAME:
SEE SEE MY PLAYMATE
COME OUT AND PLAY WITH ME
AND BRING YOUR DOLLY SWEET
CLIMB UP MY APPLE TREE
SLIDE DOWN MY RAINBOW
INTO MY CELLAR DOOR
AND WE'LL BE JOLLY FRIENDS
FOR EVER MORE, MORE, MORE.

"Say Say O' Playmate

Say say o' playmate come out and play with me. / You and your
dolly three, climb up my apple tree. / Slide down my rainbow, into
my cellar door, / and we'll be jolly friends for ever more, more,
more, more, more.
So sorry playmate, I cannot play with you. / My dolly has
the flu, she spit up on her toe. / Ain't got no rainbow, ain't
got no cellar door. / But we'll be jolly friends for ever more,
more, more, more, more.

Submitter comment: The first paragraph is the part the first child would sing
to the other child. Then the second child would reply to the
first paragraph with the answer. This was a hand clapping game
for children to play and also was used sometimes as a jump rope
chant.
