I spent endless hours jumping double dutch in the 60’s outside of Phila. Germantown area. I recently went back there , found my old girlfriends and pulled them into Daniel St. We coughed and laughed alot and we could remember how to turn and jump but only half remembered the rhymes. I have begun to form a group here in Charlottesville Va. so that my daughter will hopefully have this memory too!It’s ashame that kids just don’t do this anymore. I aim to change that. Remember Lover boy love him so can’t let him go no,no,no! Or Winston tastes good like an eeny meany disalleeny oo aah aah malleeny, hotchy cotchy liberace i love you, take a peach take a plum take a stick of chewing gum don’t like it don’t take it do the Alabama shake it, hotdog baby chicken in the gravy here comes mama with the balled headed baby. wrap it up in tissue paper throw it down the elevator first floor stop chicken baby, second floor stop chicken baby etc..
