CHILDREN'S CLAPPING SONG

SEE, SEE PLAYMATE, COME OUT AND PLAY WITH ME
AND BRING YOUR DOLLIES THREE,
CLIMB UP MY APPLE TREE,
SLIDE DOWN MY RAIN BARREL,
OPEN UP MY CELLAR DOOR
AND WE'LL BE MERRY FRIENDS FOREVER MORE.
SEE, SEE PLAYMATE, I CANNOT PLAY WITH YOU,
MY DOLLIES HAVE THE FLU,
BOO HOO HOO HOO,
CAN'T SLIDE DOWN MY RAIN BARREL
OR OPEN UP MY CELLAR DOOR,
BUT WE'LL BE JOLLY FRIENDS FOREVER MORE.
AS THIS IS SUNG, CHILDREN CLAP THEIR HANDS TO THE RHYTHM OF IT.
