I Don't Wanna Play House Lyrics

by Sara Evans

Today I sat alone at the window
And I watched our little girl outside at play
With the little boy next door like so many times before
But something didn't seem quite right today

So I went outside to see what they were doing
And then the teardrops made my eyes grow dim
'Cause I heard him name a game and I hung my head in shame
When I heard our little girl say to him

I don't want to play house, I know it can't be fun
I've watched mommy and daddy
And if that's the way it's done

I don't want to play house, it makes my mommy cry
'Cause when she played house
My daddy said goodbye

I don't want to play house, I know it can't be fun
I've watched mommy and daddy
And if that's the way it's done

I don't want to play house, it makes my mommy cry
'Cause when she played house
My daddy said goodbye
