Girls and Boys Come Out To Play Printable Lyrics – PDF

“Girls and Boys Come Out To Play” is a singing game and a very old English song for children, as it appears in Tommy Thumb’s Pretty Song Book (London, 1744), the earliest collection of English-language nursery rhymes. refers to the time when most children had to work and there was little time for play.

In fact, it wasn’t until the Industrial Revolution that education started being considered as absolutely necessary for all children (not only for kids of well-off families). It was when the custom for children to help their parents on the land during the day and play only in the afternoon started to disappear.

Lyrics

1. Girls and boys, come out to play,
The moon doth shine as bright as day;
Leave your supper, and leave your sleep,
And come with your playfellows into the street.

2. Come with a whoop, come with a call,
Come with a good will or not at all.
Up the ladder and down the wall,
A halfpenny roll will serve us all.

3. You find milk, and I’ll find flour,
And we’ll have a pudding in half an hour
You find milk, and I’ll find flour,
And we’ll have a pudding in half an hour

4. Girls and boys, come out to play,
The moon doth shine as bright as day;
Leave your supper, and leave your sleep,
And come with your playfellows into the street.
