Not Last Night But the Night Before
Jump Rope Song

Not last night but the night before
Twenty four robbers came knocking at my door
As I run out, they ran in
Hit me on the head with a rolling pin
Asked them what they wanted
And this is what they said:

Chinese dancers turn around
Chinese dancers touch the ground
Chinese dancers do the splits
Chinese dancers - Kabitz!

Game Instructions

During the Chinese dancers part, the person jumping rope had to do the actions. On "Kabitz", you had to run out.

Thanks and Acknowledgements

Many thanks to Elizabeth Brillhart Belcher for contributing this jump rope song and the jump rope game instructions.
