Rope Skipping Rhyme
I had a little teddy bear, his name was Tiny Tim
I put him the the bathtub to teach him how to swim
He drank up all the water, he ate up the soap
Hed died last night with a bubble in his throat
I called the doctor, I called the nurse,
I called the up the laday with the alligator purse.
Pencillin called the doctor, penicillin said the nurse,
Pencillin said the lady with the alligator purse.
Out went the doctor, out went the nurse,
Out went the lady with the alligator purse.
Where learned: From the children of her neighborhood.
