(CHORUS)
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 shoulda heard
The fight they had

Gave little sister
Another bad dream
She woke us all up
With a terrible scream

(CHORUS)

Cheat on your taxes
Don't be a fool
Now what was that they said
About a golden rule

Never mind the rules
Just play to win
And hate your neighbor
For the shade of his skin

(CHORUS)

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

    Parents dont realize that their children understand what the children hear and see and are able to deduce in their own minds what is right and what is wrong.. And realize hypocracy.. Choices... How can children grow up to make the right choices if it isnt modeled for them?

    Kids pay closer attention to the way adults display immaturity than realized. Adults are supposed to set an example, and they do exactly what they tell kids not to do: never make excuses for negative behavior.
