Skip A Rope (Dick Nolan)

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,
And last night you should've
heard the fight they had;
Gave little sister another bad dream,
She woke us all up with a terrible scream.

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.

Cheat on your taxes, don't be a fool,
Well what was that they said about a golden rule?
Never mind the rule, just play to win,
And hate your neighbour for the shade of his skin.

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.

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.
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.
Skip a rope. Skip a rope.
Skip a rope. Skip a rope.
