Jack be Nimble
Share on Facebook


This is a double-dutch jump rope song. One jumper at a time. And depending on how well the jumper is, will normally be followed by another song until the jumper misses. 

JACK BE NIMBLE JACK BE QUICK JACK JUMPED OVER THE CANDLE STICK.
MUMBLE, KICK, SIZZLER, SPLIT, POP-UPS 10 TO 1 - HIT IT. 10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1. 

When you sing the words "Jack Jumped Over" the jumper pops-up very high with both feet leaving the ground at the same time. When the singers call out Mumble, Kick, Sizzler, Split, Pop-ups these are actual tricks done while jumping. 

Mumble-by putting both feet together making very small hops; Kick-by repeatedly kicking one foot outward and back again; Sizzler-by crossing and uncrossing feet and legs; Split-by opening and closing legs about 5feet apart; and Pop-ups-by jumping high in the rope with both feet coming off the ground together.
