    Cinderella, dressed in yella, went upstairs to kiss her fella... made a mistake and kissed a snake. How many doctors did it take? and then start counting.
    That's one I still hear in the playground.

    Had a Little Sportscar

    Had a little sportscar 248 Took it round the coooooooooooorrr (jumper hops out of the turning rope, runs around the corner & jumps back in)
    Ner & slammed it on the brakes (jump rope turners stop turning)
    Bumped into a lady, bumped into a man
    Bumped into a policeman, man oh man
    Policeman caught me
    Put me in jail
    All I had was ginger ale
    Red, hot, chili pepper (rope turners turn faster & faster until jumper misses a jump)

    Fudge! Fudge! Call the judge! Happymomma's havin' a baby, her boyfriend's goin' crazy,
    What will she have? (repeat Boy, girl, monkey, elephant until jumper steps on rope, selecting what they'll have)

    I remember the sports car one, too.

    There's one about down in the meadow where the green grass grows where NAME sits, sweet as a rose...?

    I remember this one (from a site I googled) only you didn't fully turn the rope for all of it. Like eevie, ivey etc it goes back and forth in an arc, and over it goes all the way over. Bluebells, Cockle Shells
    Bluebells, cockle shells,
    Eevie, ivy, over;
    I like coffee, I like tea;
    I like the boys, and the boys like me.
    Tell your mother to hold her tongue;
    She had a fellow when she was young.
    Tell your father to do the same;
    He had a girl and he changed her name.
    Bluebells, cockle shells,
    Eevie, ivy, over;
    Mother went to market
    To buy some meat;
    Baby's in the cradle
    Fast asleep.

    One o'clock, two o'clock..

    Down in the valley where the green grass grows,
    There sat __________ as pretty as a rose.
    She sang so high, she sang so sweet,
    Along came ________ and kissed her on the cheek.
    How many kisses did she get?
    1, 2, 3 . . . . .

    Variations of this depending on the year and you do the obvious actions as you jump:
    Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear
    Teddy bear, teddy bear,
    Turn around.
    Teddy bear, teddy bear,
    Touch the ground.
    Teddy bear, teddy bear,
    Show your shoe.
    Teddy bear, teddy bear,
    That will do.
    Teddy bear, teddy bear,
    Go upstairs.
    Teddy bear, teddy bear,
    Say your prayers.
    Teddy bear, teddy bear,
    Turn out the light.
    Teddy bear, teddy bear,
    Say good night.
