"SKIP A ROPE"
by: bobby bare
written by Jack Moran & Glenn Tubb

Skip a Rope Skip a Rope
Oh listen to the children while they play
Now ain't it kinda funny what the children say
Skip a Rope

Daddy hates Mommy Mommy hates Dad
Last night you should'a heard the fight they had
Gave little sister another bad dream
She woke us all up with a terrible scream

Cheat on your taxes don't be a fool
Now what was that they said about a Golden Rule
Never mind the rule just play to win
And hate your neighbor for the shade of his skin

Stab 'em in the back that's the name of the game
And Mommy and Daddy are who's to blame
Skip a Rope Skip a Rope
Just listen to your children while they play

It's really not very funny what the children say
Skip a Rope Skip a Rope Skip a Rope
Skip a Rope
