How'd you guys like to try that? Here's how it works. What— What we did was assign a physical action to each member of the group that takes place over a four-bar period. See? All I do is count off four bars. And on the downbeat of the fifth bar, you squat.

So, I don't have time to instruct each of you as to what you'll do over the four bars, but, why don't you stand up and do whatever you like over a four-bar period and then on the fifth bar just sit down again? Okay? Try it once.

Stand up. Don't be shy!

Okay. Any activity that you like over a four-bar period, you ready? Okay. I'll give you one bar for nothing. One bar for nothing. And don't forget to sit down abruptly on the downbeat of the fifth bar, okay? Here we go.

One, two, three, four. Go!

. . . Four, two, three, four

Okay, come on, try it again. Just go down on the— I'll count 'em out loud. You ready? Okay. One bar for nothing. Don't do nothing. Okay.

One, two, three, four
Start! Two, three, four
Two! Two, three, four
Three! Two, three, four
Four! Two, three, four

A little late on the squat, but it'll do it. Alright . . .

We have, ah, two new songs and one old song for you right now. The, the first song is called "Pygmy Twylyte," and it's about, ah, the nation's favorite pastime. And then, after that is an old song called "The Idiot Bastard Son." And then after that, then after that is a new song about monster movies called "A Little More Cheepnis Please."

One, two, three, four . . .
