Nursery Rhyme Monday – Miss Mary Mack

Here’s our last jump rope rhyme! I hope you’ve been practicing. However, if you ask nicely, maybe I could find some more. 🙂

Miss Mary Mack

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 fifteen cents, cents, cents,
To see the elephant, elephant, elephant,
Jump the fence, fence, fence.
He jumped so high, high, high.
He reached the sky, sky, sky,
And he never came back, back, back
Till the Fourth of July, lie, lie.

  1. so I was singing Miss Marry Mack with my little cousin and I realized that what you have writen is not all of the song I know a few more lines but I was wondering if you could find out what the rest are? then next lines are- “July cant talk talk talk, July cant walk walk walk, July cant eat eat eat, with a fork and knife knife knife”

    thank you.
    Sincerely,

  2. Good old Wikipedia always coming to my aid when I need it. There are quite a few different variations, but that looked like the one you were thinking of.

    Miss Mary Mack, Mack, Mack
    All dressed in black, black, black
    With silver buttons, buttons, buttons
    All down her back, back, back.

    She cannot read, read, read
    She cannot write, write, write
    But she can smoke, smoke, smoke
    Her father’s pipe, pipe, pipe

    She asked her mother, mother, mother
    For 50 cents, cents, cents
    To see the elephants, elephants, elephants
    Jump over the fence, fence, fence.

    They jumped so high, high, high
    They reached the sky, sky, sky
    And they didn’t come back, back, back
    ‘Til the 4th of July, ly, ly!

    July can’t walk, walk, walk
    July can’t talk, talk, talk
    July can’t eat, eat, eat
    With a knife and fork, fork, fork!

    She went up stairs, stairs, stairs
    To say her prayers, prayers, prayers
    And bumped her head, head, head
    And now she’s dead, dead, dead!
