George Jones — Skip A Rope lyrics

Skip as rope, skip a rope
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 should of heard the fight they had
Gave little sister another bad dream
She woke us all up with a terrible scream.

Skip as rope, skip a rope
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 neighbour for the shade of his skin.

Skip as rope, skip a rope
Oh, listen to the children while they play
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
Just listen to the children while they play
It's really not 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.
