Spanish Lady (Not Last Night But The Night Before)

Thanks to Emmeline Kirton for e-mailing me this skipping rhyme!

Not last night but the night before
24 robbers came knocking at my door
As I went out they came in
This is what they said to me:

Spanish lady turn around
Spanish lady touch the ground
Spanish lady do high kicks
Spanish lady show your nicks! (ie knickers)

The first four lines are spoken and then the last four have a funny tune to them.

Thanks very much to Lorraine Bier, who sent this version of the game to me:

Not last night but the night before,
24 robbers came knocking at my door,
As I went out (run out of rope)
to let them in (come back into rope)
They knocked me on the head with a bottle of gin!

Spanish dancer turn around, (face the other rope turner)
Spanish dancer touch the ground, (touch fingers on ground)
Spanish dancer get out of town (leave rope)
Spanish dancer please come back (come back into rope)
Sit on a tack (squat briefly)
Read a book but don't you look! (jump with eyes closed)
