    Question Won't you come over to my house// I think?

    I'm looking for an old song my grandmother sang to me......
    Won't you come over to my house, Won't you come over and play??
    I'll give you candy, a dolly or 2

    That's all I remember, I sure would appreciate the help..

    The time was in June,
    The bees humm'd a tune
    The perfume of rose fill'd the air,
    When just o'er the way,
    Sat a baby one day,
    All alone and so one one seem'd to care,
    But one passer by,
    Turn'd and look'd with a sigh,
    At the tears and the eyes swollen red,
    Then close to her breast,
    The young darling she press'd,
    And tenderly to her she said,

    [CHORUS]
    Won't you come over to my house,
    Won't you come over and play,
    I've lots of playthings, a dolly or two
    We live in the house 'cross the way,
    I'll give you candy and sweet things,
    I'll put your hair in a curl,
    Won't you come over to my house,
    And play that you're my little girl.

    Perhaps you don't know,
    That not long ago,
    These toys I am giving to you,
    Were my little girls,
    Yes, my one little Pearl's,
    And her eyes were like yours, large and blue,
    But one night I found,
    That the angels came 'round,
    And they took her way up to the sky,
    So don't stay away,
    But come over each day,
    Or you'll make your new Mama cry,

    Smile Won't you come over to my house

    I too knew this song from over 70 years ago, a wonderful song among many! I can only recall part of the tune, do you have the music?? I think this WEB is wonderful! I am preparing to leave & as matriarch of a huge family, I want to leave these memories for them. I hope I have the time to get them all on paper & my little recorder!
