    By the way, the artist was Malcolm McLaren, not Michael McLaren.

    It came out in 1983. Double Dutch was the first record I bought, I was 5 at the time. I had awesome taste in music...

    Remember this very fondly from that warm summer of 1983, always played in pubs on a Friday night.

    we skip all the time on the playground at school..........the children love it.......even have a go myself.........show them how it's done

    started a topic Double dutch

    Double dutch

    I remember in the 80`s Michael McLaren singing the Double dutch, which one person jumps rope with two ropes and one or more people jumping simultaneously.
    We were all trying hard in the playground jumping over the ropes, but most of the time, I would hold a rope, as I was useless at doing the jumping.
Working...
