Not last night but the night before,

24 robbers came knocking at my door

I asked them what they wanted, and this is what they said:

Spanish Dancer do the splits, the twist

the turnaround and touch the ground, and out the back door

Spanish Dancer please come back, back, sit on a tack, read a book and do not look,
(jump with eyes closed, everyone counting out loud: 1, 2, 3,
4, 5... until you miss)

Not last night but the night before
24 robbers came a knocking at my door
I ask them what the want, and this is what they said.
Spanish dancers do the splits, the kicks
they turn around, touch the ground
Spanish dancers please come back, back, back
(doing what the rhyme says)
Then count till you screw up.

Not last night but the night before

24 robbers came knocking at my door,

as I ran out, (run out of rope), they ran in, (jump back in)

[they] knocked me on the head with a rolling pin

I asked them what they wanted

and this is what they said

Chinese dancers do the splits, (jumper doing the commands after each)

Chinese dancers do the kicks,

Chinese dances turn around,

Chinese dancers touch the ground,

Chinese dancers get out of town, (run out of rope, end of turn)

Not last night

Not last night, but the night before

24 Robbers came knocking at my door

As I ran out (Run out of the jump rope)

They ran in (Run back in the jump rope and start jumping again)

I asked them what they wanted and this is what they said:

Spanish dancer turn around (turn turn each time you jump)

Spanish dancer touch the ground (touch ground once when you are jumping)

Spanish dancer give a high kick (kick in the air once)

Spanish dancer get out before you miss (get out of the jump rope)

 

If you stay in, someone yells "Hot Potatoes" and then they (they ones holding the rope)start turning the rope real fast and someone counts to see how many "hot potatoes" you do.

Not last night but the night before 

24 robbers came to my door 

They stole my watch and they stole my ring 

and then they all began to sing 

"Policeman, policeman, do your duty here comes (name) the American beauty!

She can wiggle; She can wobble; 

She can do the split; 

but she can't wear her dresses above her hips!"
