Somebody Come and Play is a Sesame Street song that has many different versions. While I think of it as a happy song, some of the versions are a bit sadder.

Lyrics Edit

Somebody come and play.

Somebody come and play today.

Somebody come and smile the smiles.

And sing the songs. It won't take long.

Somebody come and play today.

Somebody come and play.

Somebody come and play my way.

Somebody come and rhyme the rhymes.

And laugh the laughs, it won't take time.

Somebody come and play today.

Somebody come with me and see the pleasure in the wind.

Somebody come before it gets too late to begin.

Somebody come and play.

Somebody come and play today.

Somebody come and be my friend.

And watch the sun 'til it rains again.

Somebody come and play today.

(break)

Da da da da da da somebody come with me and see the pleasure in the wind.

Somebody come before it gets too late to begin.

Somebody come and play.

Somebody come and play today.

Somebody come and be my friend.

Somebody come and play today.

Trivia Edit

  • In some versions, the line "come before it gets too late to begin" is replaced with "see the time is getting late to begin".
  • The reason why I classify this as a happy song is because of the optimistic line "somebody come with me and see the pleasure in the wind", which, for a joke, "blows me away". In fact, even in the sadder renditions, that line is usually sung in a happier tone.
  • I once had a dream where I sang this song with my older friends Lynne and Danny, plus two children that my mind made up for the dream: a jolly first-grade boy named Mike and a forlorn ten-year-old girl named Peggy.
