Won't you come over to my house

Won't you come over to my house,won't you come over to play,I've got a dolly or two. Slide down my rain barrel, come thru my cellar door,and we'll be friends forevermore.

My grandma used to sing this to us. I miss her so much! I have a new granddaughter to sing this to. Does anyone know if there are more lyrics? Thanks in advance.

Won't You Come Over to My House NEW
by: Anonymous

I'm 71. My mother sang us to sleep night after night with Won't You Come Over..., and After the Ball was over. I know now they were older than she was so chances are her mother sang them to her. Yes the lyrics are sad, but not creepy. I always pictured a little orphan girl being given an invitation to have a home and family. That gave special magic to the words.

Two Songs
by: Jan

My Grandmother (born in 1899) sang these to us too, but they are two separate songs. "Won't you come over to my house" is one and "Playmate" is the other. The first one, she only ever sang us the chorus which didn't seem sad at all until I heard the rest of the lyrics. I found it on You Tube. "Playmate" is a much happier song.

I am 92, and back in the 1930's my Dad sang this to us, and then I sang it to my daughters.

Won't you come over to my house song
by: Anonymous

I am looking for a very old version of Won't you come over to my house, sung by a man. It sounded like something from the twenties or early thirties. Can you help.

Won't you come over to my house
by: Anonymous

My mother and grandmother sang this to me.

Won't you come over to my house, won't you come over and play,
I've got a dolly, a plaything or two, I live in the house cross the way.
I'll give you candy and sweet things, I'll put your hair in a curl,
Won't you come over to my house and play that you're my little girl.

Perhaps you don't know that a long time ago, these toys I am giving to you,
Were my little girls, yes, my own little pearls and her eyes were like yours round and blue.
But one day I found that the angels came down,
and took her way off to the sky,
So don't stay away, come on over each day
or you'll make your new mommy cry.

Say say oh playmate
by: Kim

My great grandmother taught it to us as a hand clapping chant and I learned it a little different.

"Say, say oh 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 forever more!"
