Lin-Manuel Miranda - Lafayette Interlude lyrics

[BURR] How does a ragtag volunteer army in need of a shower Somehow defeat a global superpower? How does King George underestimate his haters? [King George III] Once we beat the traitors, we'll be greeted as liberators! [COMPANY] Yay! [BURR] Now, turns out we have a secret weapon! An immigrant you know and love who's unafraid to step in!
