#SLS ~ 3/21/21

Jim gives us Hop/Jump/Leap/Pounce/Spring as prompts. I wanted to go with Misty Mountain Hop but alas, hop is not in the lyrics despite the title. Google became my best friend as I searched for something.

I stumbled across this new to me song “Jump Rope” by Blue October. Writer: Justin Furstenfeld. Catchy little tune with lyrics that resonate with me. Hope you enjoy.

Remember how you used to say,
You couldn’t wait ’til tomorrow for a brand new day.
And no fuss
When ya had to ride the bus
You’d just add a little blush
To paralyze your school crush

Now you’re older
And the weight is on your shoulder
Make the world a little colder
No more hiding in the old days

Be strong
Don’t you give up hope
It will get hard
Life’s like a jump rope

Up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, yeah
‘Cause it will get hard
Remember life’s like a jump rope

Up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, yeah
It will get hard
‘Cause it will get hard

There’ll be a bump and there will be a bruise
There’ll be alarms and there will be a snooze
There’ll be a path that you will have to choose
There’ll be a win and there will be a lose

And you have to hold your head up high
And watch all the negative go by
Don’t you ever be ashamed to cry
You go ahead
‘Cause life’s like a jump rope

Up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, yeah
‘Cause it will get hard
Remember life’s like a jump rope

Up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, yeah
It will get hard
Come on

I wanna tell you that everything will be OK
That everything will eventually turn itself to gold
So keep pushing through it all
Don’t follow, lead the way
Don’t lose yourself or your hope
‘Cause life’s like a jump rope

Up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, yeah

You stamp your feet so hard you make it pound
Raise the bottom to the top
And now we’re never coming down

Up, down
Stamp your feet spin around
Clap your hands to the rhythm
And then you slip down

You stamp your feet so hard you make it pound
Raise the bottom to the top
And now we’re never coming down

Up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, yeah
It will get hard
Come on
Remember life’s like a jump rope

Up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, yeah
It will get hard
‘Cause it will get hard

Up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, yeah

Life’s like a jump rope

Up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, yeah

‘Cause life’s like a jump rope

    1. Glad you liked it. I need to check out more of their stuff. Until today, I only knew “Into The Ocean”. They’ve got a lot more good songs.

  1. I like your pic too. Blue October, it’s been a while since I heard their songs. I remember the song Hate Me. The singer, he’s so intense and emotional when singing that song. Thank you for sharing this song. I like the MV too, like going on a road trip to the past.
