Cellar Door slide

Thanks to reader Conuly for the tip on a linguistic analysis of the ‘cellar door’ slide reference…fascinating reading.  An 1894 song went “Say, say, oh playmate, Come out and play with me And bring your dollies three, Climb up my apple tree. Shout down my rain barrel, Slide down my cellar door, And we’ll be jolly friends forevermore.”
