The red car song is - I'm a little bumper car number 48, I went round the cooooooooorner (jump out of the rope, go around the person holding the rope and jump back in)and jammed on the brakes. At the end you are supposed to end up with the rope between your feet. - Thu Apr 20 2006
Danielle - The one about the roller coaster goes like this: Incy bitsy crumbaleeny oohlaa gumbaleenee, inspiration education, I like you. Down, Down baby, down by the roller coaster sweet sweet baby, no place to go. caught you with your boyfriend, naughty, naughty didn't do the dishes, lazy, lazy stole a piece of candy, greedy, greedy jumped out the window...must be crazy and then it goes into the intro again. There are hand clapping games to match it but that is way too complicated and weird for me to go on with - Thu Apr 20 2006
I rememeber a ditty we sang when skipping rope and it goes like this. Grace , Grace, went upstairs to powder her face....how many boxes did she use? Then we would start counting and skipping really fast. We would also do a salt and pepper which was when 3 people skipped together with 2 people holding the ends of the rope with the third person skipping and asking for salt or pepper. - Tue Mar 21 2006
