-Here's how this is going to work.

We're going to take turns

drawing a card from the stack.

Each card has one random word,

and the name of a well known song.

We have to get the other person to guess what the song is

by singing only the one word on the card, instead of the lyrics.

Ready for this? -Yeah. Are you first?
