OH PLAYMATE, COME OUT & PLAY WITH ME (Words and music by Saxie Dowell) Copyright 1940 by Santly-Joy-Select Inc. Well, short version - I disliked her boyfriend immediately (and the feeling was mutual). But, sadly, whenever I hear a song from that oh, so lovely movie, even to this day, I'm immediately and rudely bumped right back to sitting in the movie theater next to this guy. And, bless his heart, he may suffer the same feelings now, who knows. Come on now, if I can share this one, surely there's one you can share.
Taking place in New York and San Francisco on February 14, the events have been designed to bring dating hopefuls together under one roof before a couple is selected to jet off on vacation together.
It was a rainy day, She couldn't come out to play, With tearful eyes and tender sighs I could hear her say: I'm sorry Playmate, I cannot play with you My dollies have the flu, Boo-hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo.
Ain't got no rain barrel, Ain't got no cellar door But we'll be jolly friends forever more. Scooting ahead to my sophomore year at Brandywine College in Wilmington, DE (which is now, I'm sad to say, no longer Brandywine College, but part of the law school for Widener University). She wanted me to meet her boyfriend's best friend and I said yes.
(Note: I had intended to insert a You Tube video of the song here, but I was concerned about how many of you might actually threaten my life, so changed my mind.
But - there are, indeed, a few different versions right there on You Tube just waiting for you to click on one for your enjoyment, if you dare).
