Play With Me Today

Play With Me Today

Liner Notes: 

The theme for the two yoga classes I thought this morning was "play," and I thought that would be a good skirmish prompt, too.
From the point of view of a kid.


Sun comes up on my quiet street
Another day for me to greet
Step outside, hope I see
You in the garden waving at me

Oh won’t you play with me today
Let’s run around what do you say?
Oh won’t you play with me today
Only I can see you
And that’s OK

In the woods, down by the creek
we’ll take turns at hide and seek
Folks will pass by and smile at me
think I’m alone up in a tree

Oh won’t you play with me today
pick some flowers for a boquet
Oh won’t you play with me today
don’t let the world get in our way

Oh won’t you play with me today
Some might call this child’s play
for as long as you can stay
oh won’t you play with me today

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

A wonderful playful song. You captured that childhood imaginary playmate perfectly. Great job.

This is delightfully nostalgic with the innocence of childhood play times where neighborhood children would play for endless hours outside. Nice harmonica and guitar body slaps to complement the strum. As always wonderful vocals.

Beautiful song Chip. Very nice lyrics and delivery, dedication, singing and instrumentation. Your song is wonderful to listen to and it leaves a gorgeous sweet feel of the magic of childhood.
