I Don't Wanna Play House
by Loretta Lynn



Today I sat alone at the window and I watched our little girl outside at play
With the little boy next door like so many times before
But somethin' didn't seem quite right today
So I went outside to see what they were doing

And then the teardrops made my eyes grow dim
'Cause I heard him name a game and I hung my head in shame
When I heard our little girl say to him
I don't want to play house I know it can't be fun
I watched mommy and daddy and if that's the way it's done
I don't want to play house it makes my mommy cry
'Cause when she played house, my daddy said goodbye
I don't want to play house...
