Lyrics

[Intro]
(La-la-la-la-la)
(La-la-la-la-la)

[Verse 1]
I just jump rope to forget about you
I just know I shouldn't think about you
Are you jumping for me too?
Are you? Are you? Are you? (La-la-la-la-la)

[Pre-Chorus]
Miss Mary Mack, Mack, waiting for you to come back
I'll keep my mouth shut and do jumping jacks
With silver buttons on my lips so I don't crack
For you, for you, for you (La-la-la-la-la)

[Chorus]
Johnny gave me apples, Johnny gave me gum
Johnny gave me 50 cents to never fall in love
I gave him back his apples, I gave him back his gum
I gave him back his 50 cents and then I fell in love

[Post-Chorus]
Jump rope, I'll jump rope for you
Jump rope, I'll jump rope for you 'til you're home
I'll jump rope for you, I'll jump rope for you
Jump, jump, jump rope for you

[Verse 2]
I just know I shouldn't talk too much
'Cause I'm trying not to scare you off
Can I please just tell the truth
To you? To you? To you? (La-la-la-la-la)

[Pre-Chorus]
Miss Mary Mack, Mack, waiting for you to come back
I'll keep my mouth shut and do jumping jacks
With silver buttons on my lips so I don't crack
For you, for you, for you (La-la-la-la-la)

[Chorus]
Johnny gave me apples, Johnny gave me gum
Johnny gave me 50 cents to never fall in love
I gave him back his apples, I gave him back his gum
I gave him back his 50 cents and then I fell in love

[Post-Chorus]
Jump rope, I'll jump rope for you
Jump rope, I'll jump rope for you 'til you're home
I'll jump rope for you, I'll jump rope for you
Jump, jump, jump rope for you

[Bridge]
Maybe one day you'll show up and we'll double-dutch (La-la-la-la-la)
Maybe one day you'll show up and we'll double-dutch (La-la-la-la-la)

[Chorus]
Johnny gave me apples, Johnny gave me gum
Johnny gave me 50 cents to never fall in love
I gave him back his apples, I gave him back his gum
I gave him back his 50 cents and then I fell in love

[Post-Chorus]
Jump rope, I'll jump rope for you
Jump rope, I'll jump rope for you 'til you're home
I'll jump rope for you, I'll jump rope for you
Jump, jump, jump rope for you
Jump rope, I'll jump rope for you
Jump rope, I'll jump rope for you 'til you're home
I'll jump rope for you, I'll jump rope for you
Jump, jump, jump rope for you
