ROPE JUMPING RIME

MARGIE HAD A BABY, NAMED HIM TINY TIM
PUT HIM IN THE BATHTUB TO TEACH HIM HOW TO SWIM.
HE DRANK UP ALL THE WATER, HE ATE UP ALL THE SOAP.
MARGIE CALLED THE DOCTOR, MARGIE CALLED THE NURSE, MARGIE CALLED
THE LADY WITH THE ALLIGATOR PURSE.
IN CAME THE DOCTOR, IN CAME THE NURSE, IN CAME THE LADY WITH THE
ALLIGATOR PURSE.
DEAD SAID THE DOCTOR, DEAD SAID THE NURSE, DEAD SAID THE LADY WITH
THE ALLIGATOR PURSE.
OUT WENT THE DOCTOR, OUT WENT THE NURSE, OUT WENT THE LADY WITH THE
ALLIGATOR PURSE.
