I Don't Want to Play House
by Lynn Anderson



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 something didn't seem quite right today

So I went outside to see what they were doing
And then the teardrops made my eyes go dim,
Cause I heard him name a game, and I hung my head in shame
When I heard our little girl say to him:

[Chorus]
I don't want to play house
I know it can't be fun
I've 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"

[Chorus]
