JUMP-ROPE RHYME

TEDDY BEAR, TEDDY BEAR, TOUCH THE GROUND.
TEDDY BEAR, TEDDY BEAR, TURN AROUND.
TEDDY BEAR, TEDDY BEAR, COMB YOUR HAIR.
TEDDY BEAR, TEDDY BEAR, SIT ON A CHAIR.
TEDDY BEAR, TEDDY BEAR, TURN OUT THE LIGHT.
TEDDY BEAR, TEDDY BEAR, SAY GOOD NIGHT.
THIS RHYME IS SUNG WHILE JUMPING ROPE. THERE
MUST BE TWO PLAYERS AT EITHER END SWINGING
THE ROPE. ANOTHER PLAYER ENTERS THE ROPE AND
MIMICS THE ACTIONS THAT ARE SUNG IN THE RHYME.
IF THAT PLAYER MISSES SHE MUST TAKE AN END OF
THE ROPE AND BE A SWINGER. IF SHE DOESN'T MISS
SHE EXITS THE ROPE ON THE LAST VERSE AND WAITS
FOR HER TURN IN LINE.
