    Both seem too complicated for a chant.

    Watch the video on the other thread that started this... taken directly from that but using different words... they both work.

    The second one does not have the correct meter for a chant. Just try chanting it. It doesn't work.

    YOU are NOW at ALT ti TUDE does.

    You are Now at...
    You are Now at Altitude...You are Now at Altitude...You are Now at Altitude...You are Now at Altitude...

    "NOW" works better. And, whoever suggested changing it to "STILL" at the beginning of the second half could have something.........

    You
    You are
    You are at
    You are at High
    You are at High Altitude... You are at high altitude...


    They work the same and have the same amount of syllables

    That was me, and is another reason why I believe the "You are Now at Altitude" is the better option

    It is the meter of the line. The way you would naturally stress the syllables does not lend itself to a chant.
