Miss Mary Mack, Mack, Mack
All dressed in black, black, black
With silver buttons, buttons, buttons
All down her back, back, back
She asked her mother, mother, mother
For fifty cents, cents, cents
To see the elephants, elephants, elephants
Jump over the fence, fence fence
They jumped so high, high, high
They touched the sky, sky, sky
And didn't come back, back, back
Till the fourth of July, July, July!

J is for jump rope! And, that was my favorite jump rope song when I was little!
After the jumper finished the song's last line, she would say "How many elephants came back back,back" and she would then count as she jump rope as fast as she could jump until she missed! Whoever counted the highest number of 'elephants' won that round.
