Aaron Burr, Sir
Lin-Manuel Miranda, Leslie Odom, Jr., Anthony Ramos, Original Broadway Cast of Hamilton, Daveed Diggs, Okieriete Onaodowan
1776 New York City Pardon me, are you Aaron Burr, sir? That depends, who's asking? Oh, sure, sir I'm Alexander Hamilton, I'm at your service, sir I have been looking for you I'm getting nervous Sir, I heard your name at Princeton I was seeking an accelerated course of study When I got sort of out of sorts with a buddy of yours I may have punched him, it's a blur, sir He handles the financials? You punched the bursar? Yes, I wanted to do what you did Graduate in two, then join the revolution He looked at me like I was stupid, I'm not stupid So how'd you do it, how'd you graduate so fast? It was my parent's dying wish before they passed You're an orphan, of course I'm an orphan God, I wish there was a war Then we could prove that we're worth more than anyone bargained for Can I buy you a drink? That would be nice While we're talking, let me offer you some free advice Talk less What? Smile more Ha Don't let them know what you're against or what you're for You can't be serious You wanna get ahead? Yes Fools who run their mouths off wind up dead Aye, yo yo, yo yo, yo What time is it? Show time Like I said Show time, show time Yo, I'm John Lauren's in the place to be (woo) A-two pints o' Sam Adams, but I'm workin' on three, uh Those redcoats don't want it with me 'Cause I will pop-chick-a pop these cops 'til I'm free Aye, oui oui, mon ami, je m'appelle Lafayette The Lancelot of the revolutionary set I came from afar just to say bonsoir Tell the king casse-toi Who's the best? C'est moi Brrah, brrah, I am Hercules Mulligan Up in it, lovin' it, yes I heard ya mother said come again Aye, lock up ya daughters and horses, of course It's hard to have intercourse over four sets of corsets (wow) No more sex, pour me another brew, son Let's raise a couple more to the revolution Well, if it ain't the prodigy of Princeton college Aaron Burr Give us a verse, drop some knowledge Good luck with that, you're takin' a stand You spit, I'ma sit We'll see where we land (boo) Burr, the revolution's imminent, to what do you stall for? If you stand for nothing Burr, what'll you fall for? Ooh, who are you? Who are you Who are you? Ooh, who is this kid, what's he gonna do?
