"My school yard version of the 'Bluebells, Cockleshells' skipping song..." -Gillian
Jump Rope Song
Eevy, ivy, over.
My mother sent me to the store
And this is what she sent me for:
Salt, vinegar, pepper.
(1) Long rope swinging from side to side.
(2) On "over" the rope turns up and over, and continues this way.
(3) On "pepper" the rope turns faster.
Here's another version that's sung in Canada:
Blue bells, cockle shells,
Evy ivy overhead,
My mother said that I was born in...
May, June, July, August,
