i don’t wanna play house lyrics – loretta lynn

“i don’t wanna play house”

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 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…
