Submitter comment:

While two peopleare turning the rope, one person is jumping and chanting this rhyme in a sing-song style.  When he misses, he must jump again doing the action of the word he missed on. EX: If he missed on
"High" he as to jump while the rope is turning high- rope not touching the ground.  "Low" he jumps crouched over.  "Jolly"- he turns around while jumping.  "Peppers"- the rope is turned very fast while he is jumping.
