A Song to Share

Usually when the Party travels together, in order to keep some peace between the cubs, we listen to Kids Place Live.  Most of the songs on Kids Place Live are pretty silly like “Did You See Where the Cat Threw Up?” or “Macaroni and Cheese” or “Butterfly Driving a Truck.”  Every once in a while some of the songs have great meaning if you really listen.  One of my favorites is called “Jump Rope” by a group named Blue October.  Listen HERE (or just read the lyrics below)!  Enjoy and have a great day!!

Remember how you used to say

You couldn’t wait till tomorrow for a  brand new day

no fuss when ya had to ride the bus

You just add a little blush

To paralyze your school crush

Now you’re older and the weight is on your shoulder

Make the world a little colder

No more hidin in the old day

Be strong

Don’t  you give up hope

It will get hard

Life’s like a jump rope

Up down, Up down, Up down, Up down yeah

Cause it will get hard

Remember  life’s like a jump rope

Up down, Up down, Up down, Up down yeah

It will get hard

Cause it will get hard

There’ll be a bump and there will be a bruise

There’ll be alarms and there will be a  snooze

There’ll be a path that you will have to choose

There’ll be a win and there will be a lose and

You  gotta hold your head up high and

Watch all the negative go by

Don’t ever be ashamed to cry

You go ahead

Cause life’s like a jump rope

Up down, Up down, Up  down, Up down yeah

It will get hard

Remember life’s like a jump rope

Up down, Up down, Up down, Up down yeah

It will get hard

Come on

I want to tell you that  everything will be okay

That  everything will eventually turn itself to gold

So keep pushing through it all

Don’t  follow, lead the way

Don’t lose  yourself or your hope

Cause life’s  like a jump rope

Up down, Up down, Up down, Up down  yeah

You stomp your feet so  hard you make it pound

Raise the  bottom to the top

And now we’re  never coming down

Up down, stomp  your feet, spin around

Clap hands to  the rhythm

Then you slip down

You stomp your feet so hard  you make it pound

Raise the bottom  to the top

And now we’re never  coming down

Up down, Up down, Up  down, Up down yeah

It will get hard

Remember  life’s like a jump rope
