See, See My Playmate

See, see my playmate.
Come out and play with me, and bring your dollies, three.
Climb up my apple tree. Slide down my rain barrel.
Into my cellar door. And we'll be jolly friends,
Forevermore.
So sorry playmate.
Can't come out and play with you.
My dollies got the flu. Oh boo hoo hoo hoo hoo.
Ain't got no rain barrel. Don't got no cellar door.
We can't be jolly friends, forevermore.

Submitter comment: This songs were sung, usually by two girls, who would
at the same time clap their hands together once and
then hit right hands, clap, then left hands, then clap again
continuing that pattern throughout the entire song.
