Human Megaphone 

We’re gonna play Human Megaphone. 

Do you know that term? That’s when 

a crowd echoes what a speaker says, 

like at a rally.

 

In the game version, your job 

is to echo my words 

and match my enthusiasm; my job 

is to pump you up.

 

To do that, I’ll have to group my words 

into short phrases 

you can actually remember.

So here we go:

 

Your job                                    (Audience repeats.)

is to echo my words               (Audience repeats.)

and match my enthusiasm;  (Audience repeats.)

my job                                       (Audience repeats.)

is to pump you up.                  (Audience repeats.)

 

(Repeat the call and response lines above. Then:)

 

That was two reps; you’ll do three,

so you can really get us fired up.

 

Okay, who wants to go first?
