C                   G7     
Skip a Rope  Skip a Rope
   C                                 Am     
Oh listen to the children while they play
    C                             Am            
Now ain't it kinda funny what the children say
Skip a Rope
Daddy hates Mommy  Mommy hates Dad
C                                 Am               
Last night you should'a heard the fight they had
C                              Am      
Gave little sister another bad dream
    C                     Am               
She woke us all up with a terrible scream
C                              Am     
Cheat on your taxes don't be a fool
    C                               Am            
Now what was that they said about a Golden Rule
C                                Am    
Never mind the rule just play to win
    C                          Am                 
And hate your neighbor for the shade of his skin
C                                           Am     
Stab 'em in the back that's the name of the game
    C                   Am               
And Mommy and Daddy are who's to blame
       C            G7    
Skip a Rope  Skip a Rope
     C                                  Am     
Just listen to your children while they play
            C                                Am
It's really not very funny what the children say
       C     Am     C     Am     C      
Skip a Rope  Skip a Rope  Skip a Rope 
Am     C    
Skip a Rope
