"Girls and Boys Come Out to Play" lyrics:
Girls and boys come out to play,
The moon does shine as bright as day;
Leave your supper and leave your sleep,
And join your playfellows in the street.

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

Additional versions:
Version 1

Girls and boys come out to play,
The moon does shine as bright as day;
Leave your supper and leave your sleep,
And join your playfellows in the street.

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

Version 2

Girls and boys come out to play,
The moon doth shine as bright as day:
Come with a hoop, come with a call,
Come with a good will, or not at all:
Leave your supper and leave your sleep,
Come to your playfellows in the street:
Up the ladder and down the wall,
A penny loaf will serve us all.

(Traditional)

Version 3

Boys and girls come out to play,
The moon doth shine as bright as day.
Leave your supper and leave your sleep,
And join your playfellows in the street.

Come with a whoop and come with a call,
Come with a good will or not at all.
Up the ladder and down the wall,
A half-penny loaf will serve us all;

You find milk, and I'll find flour,
And we'll have a pudding in half an hour.
But when the
Loaf is gone, what will you do?
Those who would eat must work 'tis true'

Historical Background:
Though written for and about children, the earliest references to "Girls and Boys Come Out to Play" are found in adult literature—in dance books of 1708, 1719, 1728, in satires of 1709 and 1725, and in a political broadside of 1711. "Girls and Boys Come Out to Play" was collected as a nursery rhyme in "Tommy Thumb's Pretty Song Book," published around 1744, which only included the first six lines.ançó 兒童歌曲 djeca pjesma dětské písně børn sang kinderen lied mga bata awit lasten laulu chanson enfant kinder παιδιά το τραγούδι બાળકો ગીત timoun chante שיר ילדים बच्चों के गीत gyermekek dal Börn lag lagu anak bambini canzone 子どもたちは、歌 ಮಕ್ಕಳ ಹಾಡು 아이들은 노래 bērnu dziesma vaikų dainų barn آهنگ کودکان dzieci piosenki crianças canção copii детской песни деца песма detské piesne otroci pesem watoto wimbo குழந்தைகள் பாடல் పిల్లలు పాట เด็กเพลง çocuklar şarkı дитячої пісні بچوں کے گیت trẻ m hát phonics 123 i'm a little teapot playground exercise fitnessc
