Thread Name: Lyr/Chords Req: On a mountain stands a lady
Subject: ADD: On the hillside stands a lady
The little girls in Belfast and probably other places used to sing a skipping song that went: During the singing of the second part the skipper would have to spin, touch her shoe etc, without getting tangled in the rope. If successful she would pass on and rejoin the line, if not she had to take the end of the rope and do the turning, this went on until everybody got a chance to skip. My sisters would sing it often, I suppose there are other verses but I can't recall any.
