Dessa - Jumprope Lyrics



Girls on the block
Turn rope calling out
The same games
That I played
It goes turn around, then jump
Touch the ground, then jump
Wake up to find work
And look for love
But when that rope comes
Round you jump
That rope comes round you jump
Jump
Jump
Jump
You sterilize the needle with
A lighter and a prayer
You sew your empty pockets closed
Cut off all your hair
You train up on the mountaintop
To weaponize the blood
You bring your body back to sea
Level to see what body does
And it runs
And it runs
And it runs

It was just jumprope then
You try not to get hit
You try to stay in
Don't let em talk that down
It's still jumprope now
[x2]

You hope you get the fast horse
Some of what you ask for
Never let a broken heart k-keep
You from the dance floor
Have a little fun
Have a little fun
Girls on the block
Turn rope calling out
The same games
Turn around
Touch the ground
Wake up to find work and look for love
But when what rope comes round
Rope comes round you jump
Jump
Jump
Jump

It was just jumprope then
You try not to get hit
You try to stay in
Don't let em talk that down
It's still jumprope now
[x4]
