Remember how you used to say
You couldn't wait till tomorrow for a brand new day, and
No fuss when ya had to ride the bus.
You could add a little blush
To paralyze your school crush.

Now your older and the weight is on your shoulder
Make the world a little colder,
No more hidin' in the old day.
Be strong
Don't give up hope.
It will get hard
Life's like a jump rope.

Up down,
Up down,
Up down,
Up down, yeah.
'Cause it will get hard, remember life's like a jump rope.

Up down,
Up down,
Up down,
Up down, yeah.
It will get hard. 'Cause it will get hard.

There'll be a bump there will be a bruise.
There'll be alarms and there will be a snooze.
There'll be a path that you will get to choose.
There'll be a win and there will be a lose.

And you gotta hold your head up high,
And watch all the negative go by.
Don't ever be ashamed to cry.
You go ahead, 'cause life's like a jump rope.

Up down,
Up down,
Up down,
Up down, yeah.
It will get hard, remember life's like a jump rope.

Up down,
Up down,
Up down,
Up down, yeah.
It will get hard.

Come on, whoo!

I want to tell you that everything will be okay.
That everything will eventually turn itself to gold.
So keep pushing through it all.
Don't follow, lead the way.
Don't lose yourself or your hope,
'Cause life's like a jump rope.

Up down,
Up down,
Up down,
Up down, yeah.

You stomp your feet so hard you make them pound,
Raise the back until the top and now we're never coming down.
Uptown, stomp your feet, spin around,
Clap your hands to the rhythm, then you slip down.
Stomp your feet so hard you make them pound,
Raise the back until the top and now we're never coming down.

Up down,
Up down,
Up down,
Up down, yeah.
It will get hard, remember life's like a jump rope.

Up down,
Up down,
Up down,
Up down, yeah.
It will get hard. 'Cause it will get hard.

Up down,
Up down,
Up down,
Up down, yeah.
Life's like a jump rope.

Up down,
Up down,
Up down,
Up down, yeah.
Whoa, 'cause life's like a jump rope.
