All over the world high school girls
Take to the ropes and turn them slow

Starts a beat and a loop
they skip and jump thru the hoop

They might break and they might fall
About the gals from New York City donY

They just start again
start again.
Heh ebo ebonettes
heh
ebo ebonettes

Heh ebo
ebo ebo ebonettes

Heh ebo
ebo ebo ebonettes

Heh ebo
ebo ebo ebonettes.
Hmm
the golden angels - aah
the ford green angels

The five town diamond skippers
the pleasure of rope rippers

Those dark and lovely skippers
those five town diamond skippers.
Skip they do's the double dutch
that's them dancing.
Skip they do's the double dutch. that's them dancing.

Skip they do's the double dutch
that's them dancing.
Skip they do's the double dutch
that's them dancing.
Swing those ropes round and around

All the teams change your partners now

Somersault thru the hoop leap to beat the clicks
that keep on coming.
Heh
watch your feet to win the double dutch - stay jumping.

Heh ebo ebonettes
heh
ebo ebo ebonettes
. . .
The mighty motion skippers
the pleasure of rope rippers

Aah
the dark and lovely skippers
hmm
mighty motion skippers.
The skip they do's the double dutch
that's them dancing.
The skip they do's the double dutch
that's them dancing.
Heh girls
how many skips can you do?
