Dottie West — I Don't Wanna Play House lyrics

Today I sat alone at my window and I watched our little boy outside at play
With the little girl 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 came my eyes would lame
Cause I heard him name the game and I hung my head in shame
When I heard our little boy say to her
(I don't wanna 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 wanna play house it makes my mommy cry
Cause when she played house my daddy said goodbye)
(I don't wanna play house...
