Grand Old Duke of York

The grand old Duke of York,
He had ten thousand men.
He marched them up the hill, (Everyone stands up)
And marched them down again. (Everyone sits down)

And when you’re up, you’re up, (Everyone stands up)
And when you’re down, you’re down. (Everyone sits down)
And when you’re only halfway up, (Everyone stands halfway up)
You’re neither up nor down. (Everyone stands up and sits down quickly.)

Repeat, increasing speed...

(Same actions as above, except...)

The Grand ol’ Captain Kirk
He had ten thousand men
He beamed them to the Enterprise
Then he beamed them down again

And when you’re up you’re up
And when you’re down you’re down
And when you’re only halfway up
You’re nowhere to be found (Everyone spins in circles.)
