JUMP ROPE RHYME

IN WENT THE DOCTOR
IN WENT THE NURSE
IN WENT THE LADY
WITH THE ALLIGATOR PURSE.

I HAD A LITTLE BROTHER
HIS NAME WAS TINY TIM
I PUT HIM IN THE BATHTUB
TO TEACH HIM HOW TO SWIM.

HE DRANK UP ALL THE WATER
AND ATE UP ALL THE SOAP
AND DIE (SIC) LAST NIGHT
WITH A BUBBLE IN HIS THROAT.

OUT WENT THE DOCTOR
OUT WENT THE NURSE
OUT WENT THE LADY
WITH THE ALLIGATOR PURSE.
