Lin-Manuel Miranda - Aaron Burr, Sir (Off-Broadway) lyrics

[COMPANY] 1776, New York City [HAMILTON] Pardon me. Are you Aaron Burr, sir? [BURR] That depends, who's asking? [HAMILTON] Oh, sure, sir I'm Alexander Hamilton, I'm at your service, sir I have been looking for you [BURR] I'm getting nervous [HAMILTON] 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? [BURR] You punched the bursar [HAMILTON] 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? [BURR] It was my parents' dying wish before they pa**ed [HAMILTON] You're an orphan. Of course! I'm an orphan God, I wish there was a war! We could prove that we're worth more Than anyone bargained for… [BURR] Can I buy you a drink? [HAMILTON] That would be nice [BURR] While we're talking, let me offer you some free advice Talk less [HAMILTON] Heh, what? [BURR] Smile more [HAMILTON] Ha [BURR] Don't let them know what you're against or what you're for [HAMILTON] You can't be serious [BURR] You wanna get ahead? [HAMILTON] Yes [BURR] Fools who run their mouths off wind up dead [LAURENS] Yo yo yo yo yo! Yo yo yo yo yo! [BURR] …like I said… [LAURENS] Yo yo yo yo, I said I'm John Laurens in the place to be! Two pints o' Sam Adams, and I'm workin' on three, uh! These redcoats don't want it with me! Cuz I will pop chick-a pop these cops till I'm free! [LAFAYETTE] 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 “Ca**e toi!” Who's the best? C'est moi! [MULLIGAN] Brrrah, brraaah! I am Hercules Mulligan Up in it, lovin' it, yes I heard ya mother said [LAFAYETTE & LAURENS] “Come again?” [MULLIGAN] Lock up ya daughters and horses, of course It's hard to have intercourse over four sets of corsets… [LAFAYETTE] Oh... [LAURENS] No more s**, pour me another brew, son! Let's raise a couple more… [LAURENS/LAFAYETTE/MULLIGAN] To the revolution! [LAURENS] Well, if it ain't the prodigy of Princeton college! [MULLIGAN] Aaron Burr! [LAURENS] Give us a verse, drop some knowledge! [BURR] Good luck with that: you're takin' a stand You spit. I'm ‘a sit. We'll see where we land [LAFAYETTE/MULLIGAN] Boooo! [LAURENS] Burr, the revolution's imminent. What do you stall for? [HAMILTON] If you stand for nothing, Burr, what will you fall for?
