My young nieces have discovered the joys of jumping rope. I really want to start teaching them the sing song jump rope ditties. You know, like "Cinderella, dressed in yellow, something something something and kissed a fella..." Clearly I need help remembering all the words.

Do y'all remember any of these from your youth?

Well, your version makes a lot more sense than the things I was making up!


You don't remember Miss Mary Mack do you? There were others but I can't remember them any more...

Miss Mary Mack Mack Mack
All dressed in black, black, black
With silver buttons, buttons, buttons
All down her back, back, back.

She asked her mother, mother, mother
For 50 cents, cents, cents
To see the elephants, elephants, elephants
Jump over the fence, fence, fence.

They jumped so high, high, high
They reached the sky, sky, sky
And they didn't come back, back, back
'Til the 4th of July, ly, ly!

As I went down to my grandfather's farm.
A Billy goat chased me around the barn.
It chased me up a sycamore tree,
And this is what it said to me:
ÒI like coffee, I like tea,
I like *insert child's name here* to jump with me.

Bluebells, cockle shells,
Eevie, ivy, over;
I like coffee, I like tea;
I like the boys, and the boys like me.
Tell your mother to hold her tongue;
She had a fellow when she was young.
Tell your father to do the same;
He had a girl and he changed her name.

Chocolate bears and gingerbread cats,
All dressed up in whipped-cream hats.
Danced in the garden under the moon,
Beat sweet rhythms with a wooden spoon,
Whirling, turning, jumping to the beat,
Melting down to their ice cream feet.

When the baker ran to see,
They ran beneath the gum-gum tree,
Running in between the rows,
Tripping over ice cream toes.
There were 1, 2, 3 . . .

I went downtown
To see Ms. Brown,
She gave me a nickel
To buy a pickle,
The pickle was sour,
So I bought a flower.
The flower was dead, she gave me a tack.
The tack was sharp, she gave me a harp.
The harp was broke, she gave me a cloak.
The cloak was tight, she gave me a kite.
The kite away flew, and I did too.​

A, B, C and vegetable goop.
What will I find in my alphabet soup?
A, B, C. . . . . . . .
(When you miss, make up something that starts with the letter you missed on.)

Anthy Maria jumped in the fire.
The fire too hot, she jumped in the pot.
The pot was too black, she jumped in a crack.
The pot was soon over, she jumped in some clover.
Clover's too sweet; she kicked up her feet.
Feet was soon over, she cried 1, 2, 3,
Jumped in a tree.
The tree was so high she couldn't go higher.
'Long came a breeze, blew her away.

Benjamin Franklin went to France
To teach the ladies how to dance.
First the heel, and then the toe,
Spin around and out you go.

Bubble gum, bubble gum
Penny a packet,
First you chew it,
Then you crack it,
Then you stick it
In your jacket,
Then your parents
Kick up a racket.
Bubble gum, bubble gum, Penny a packet.

Police man Police man do your duty,
Here comes miss America beauty,
Salute to the Captain,
Curtsy to the Queen,
Touch the bottom of the submarine.

Child then tries to bend down and touch the ground while jumping without missing.
