Skip a rope, skip a rope

Awwwww Listen to the children
While they play
Now, ain't it kinda' funny
What the children say.

Skip a rope.

Daddy hates momma and momma hates dad
Last night, you should've heard the fight they had
It gave little sister another bad dream
She woke us all up with a terrible scream.

Skip a rope, skip a rope,

Awwwww Listen to the children
While they play
Now, ain't it kinda' funny
What the children say.

Skip a rope.

Cheat on your taxes, don't be a fool
Now, what was that they said about a Golden Rule?
Well, never mind the rules, just play to win
And hate your neighbor for the shade of their skin.

Skip a rope, skip a rope.

Awww Listen to the children
While they play
Now, ain't it kinda' funny
What the children say.

Skip a rope.

Stab 'em in the back,
That's the name of the game
And momma and daddy
Are who's to blame.

Skip a rope, skip a rope.

Awww Listen to the 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...
