Playmate, Come Out and Play With Me is a traditional children’s song. This version is an easy piano piece for beginners. The student does not have to change hand positions at all; the hand position is what I commonly hear referred to as “Middle C position”. However, to make this a little more difficult are the facts that this is in G major rather than C major, there is a first/second ending, and they are notes that must be played at the same time on both hands. To help with learning those, there are courtesy accidentals to remind the student of what the G major key signature is telling them.
This traditional children’s song was suggested to me by a friend when I was looking for more children’s songs to write out. I am fond of traditional children’s songs and nursery rhymes.
Say, say, say, playmate,
Come out and play with me,
And bring your dollies three,
Climb up my apple tree.
Look down my rain barrel,
Slide down my cellar door,
And we’ll be jolly friends
Forever more, more, more, more more!
