Lin Manuel Miranda – Aaron Burr, Sir lyrics
[Company]
Seventeen seventy-six
New York City

[Alexander Hamilton]
Pardon me, are you Aaron Burr, sir?

[Aaron Burr]
That depends, who’s asking?

[Alexander Hamilton]
Oh, sure, sir
I’m Alexander Hamilton, I’m at your service, sir
I have been looking for you

[Aaron Burr]
I’m getting nervous

[Alexander 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?

[Aaron Burr]
You punched the bursar?

[Alexander 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?

[Aaron Burr]
It was my parent's dying wish before they passed

[Alexander Hamilton]
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

[Aaron Burr]
Can I buy you a drink?
That would be nice

While we’re talking, let me offer you some free advice
Talk less

[Alexander Hamilton]
What?

[Aaron Burr]
Smile more

[Alexander Hamilton]
Ha

[Aaron Burr]
Don’t let them know what you're against or what you're for

[Alexander Hamilton]
You can't be serious

[Aaron Burr]
You wanna get ahead?

[Alexander Hamilton]
Yes

[Aaron Burr]
Fools who run their mouths off wind up dead

[John Laurens]
Yo yo yo yo yo
What time is it?

[Layafette and Hercules]
Show time

[Aaron Burr]
Like I said

[John Laurens]
Show time, show time
Yo, I’m John Laurens in the place to be
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 till I’m free

[Marquis de La Fayette]
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

[Hercules Mulligan]
Brrrah, brraaah I am Hercules Mulligan
Up in it, lovin' it, yes I heard ya mother said "come again"

[John and Lafayette]
Ayyy!

[Hercules Mulligan]
Lock up ya daughters and horses, of course
It’s hard to have intercourse over four sets of corsets.

[Lafayette]
Wow.

[John Laurens]
No more sex, pour me another brew, son
Let’s raise a couple more

[John. Lafayette, Mulligan]
To the revolution!

[John Laurens]
Well, if it ain’t the prodigy of Princeton college

[Hercules Mulligan]
Aaron Burr

[John Laurens]
Give us a verse, drop some knowledge

[Aaron Burr]
Good luck with that, you’re takin' a stand
You spit, I’m 'a sit
We’ll see where we land

[Lafayette and Mulligan]
Boo!

[John Laurens]
Burr, the revolution’s imminent, what do you stall for?

[Alexander Hamilton]
If you stand for nothing Burr, what’ll you fall for?

[John Laurens]
Oh, who are you oh,

[Hercules Mulligan]
Who are you oh,

[Maquis de La Fayette]
Who are you?

[John, Hercules, Lafayette]
Oh, who is this kid, what’s he gonna do?
