Lin-Manuel Miranda - My Shot lyrics

[Lin-Manuel Miranda] I am not throwing away my shot I am not throwing away my shot My name is Lin-Manuel I am hosting SNL And I am not throwing away my shot Now I’m gonna go for broke and do it all tonight Take a swing Pa** the baton Give me the ball tonight I got a Tony and an Emmy and a Grammy yo But what I really want’s a famous person cameo Damn yo Imma do a bunch of sketches Sometimes I’ll play the lead Give you what you need Got your cue cards for me to read, yes indeed Tonight you’ll see me at my naughtiest and bawdiest And now I’m going to walk into the audience Cause I am not throwing away my shot I am not throwing away my shot This is my one big chance so bring on the dancers Because I am not throwing away my shot It’s time to take a shot! And yes I’m right in my element Who knew that Hamilton would be so topically relevant? The way these grand-standing candidates be talking They’re just a tweet away from facing off in Weehawken They keep brawling D and RNC keep falling I like it better when it’s Kate McKinnon V. Baldwin Yo so we thick in the plot, stirring the pot Tonight I’m finally earning my spot On this wall, in this hall and I’m getting a piece of it Like Miley, Schumer, Tracy Morgan, and this piece- (Well you’re never gonna be president now Never gonna be president now Never gonna be president now Never gonna be-) And I am not throwing away my shot I am not throwing away my shot Ay yo election news cycles And time with Lorne Michaels I am not throwing away my shot [Lorne Michaels] Lin, you having a good time? [Lin-Manuel MIranda] I’m having the time of my life Lorne [Lorne Michaels] Great Any word on those Hamilton Tickets? [Lin-Manuel Miranda] Oh yeah, I’ll see what I can do. No promises though [Lorne Michaels] I can do a matinee [Lin Manuel Miranda] Yo, but seriously guys Since I was five I decided to keep my eyes pried open wide Waiting for Saturday Night Life Gilda Radner, Chevy Chase, insane, inhuman The way Don Pardo would say ‘Laraine Newman!’ Dana Carvey, Tina Fey, Vanessa Bayer, David Spade I prayed and stayed up late Hoping one day they’d say I made the grade Breathe Savor it Own it I swear to God If I’m hosting I’m making the most of this moment tonight And I am not throwing away my shot I am not throwing away my shot And as long as I remember to vote this November I am not throwing away my shot
