Spamilton - His Shot Lyrics

2016 An American Parody of the Broadway show Hamilton
Spamilton the Musical - His Shot Lyrics

LIN-MANUEL:
You can't be serious!
I've got to stir things up sir
There's a better Broadway out there
And I'm gonna find it or build it
I am not gonna let Broadway rot
I am not gonna let Broadway rot
Hey yo I'm just like a beaver a young overacheiver
And I love being a hot big shot
I wrote a tune over at Wesleyan College
I probably shouldn't brag but dag it amazed and astonished
The problem was that In The Heights wasn't very polished
I wasn't modest but they dropped a turd on every word
Too much knowledge
But experience was enough
I finally reached my goal now I'm on a roll
But sometimes I screech notes unreachable
When I was nineteen but my throat was much older
These New York critics get colder I shoulder
Every burden but now I can manage and to my advantage
And I'll clean up all the damage the theatre is famished
My plan is to turn In The Heights into a flame
But I'm not Auntie Mame so let me spell out my name
I am the L-I-N-M-A-N-U-E-L I tell you we're meant to be
The colony of theatre royalty
Meanwhile Broadway keeps shifting on us endlessly
Essentially new shows stink relentlessly
They fill them with hot air and have a spendin' spree
Everything is overblown condescendingly
But there will be a revolution in this century
Enter me (He says with reverbery)
I won't be shocked when theatre history mentions me
I will rude out the rife mediocrity
And eventually all shows will be starring me
And I am not gonna let Broadway rot
I am not gonna let Broadway rot
Hey yo I'm just like a savior with Mob Deep's behavior
And I love being a hot big shot

LIN-MANUEL & LESLIE ODOM:
I am not gonna let Broadway rot
I am not gonna let Broadway rot
Hey yo I'm just like a savior with Beyonce behavior
And I love being a hot big shot
We're really really hot

DAVEED DIGGS:
I dream of Hip Parisian finally
But every song in France is in a minor key
Anarchy off the key everyone's panicky
What the hell, Lin Manuel will stop the anarchy with one shot

OKEIRIETE ONADOWAN:
Yo I'm a costume designer
But William Ivey Long thinks my credits are minor
I'm joining the rebellion cause I know it's my chance
To artistically advance instead of hemming his pants I'm gonna
Take a shot

LESLIE ODOM JR.:
Geniuses, lower your passion
Low expectations keep ovations in fashion
Be cautious, let's do South Pacific a lot
It needn't be carefully taught otherwise you're gonna get shot

LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA:
Burr, check what we got
Daveed Diggs, my pet, hard rock like Lancelot
He's like Goulet but not
Goulet was different squat
Daveed's a lot blacker than when Robert played Lancelot
Was Sweeney Todd's with odds much higher up than we thought?
Cuttin' a lot of conventional throats like it or not
A bunch of revolutionary men on missions as precisionists
"Get me an audition for a show that's more revisionist"
Oh, am I sounding too wise?
My verbiage get's me excited, run off at the mouth
I tell you, this is what I waited for,
I promise I won't compromise!

OKEIRIETE ONADOWAN:
Let's get this guy a Pulitzer Prize!
And I am not throwing away my pot
I am not throwing away my pot
Hey yo I'm just like my country I'm young, greedy and weedy
And I'm not throwing away my pot

EVERYONE:
I am not throwing away my pot
I am not throwing away my pot
Hey yo I'm just like my country I'm young, greedy and weedy
And I'm not throwing away my pot

LESLIE ODOM JR.:          EVERYONE:
Everybody, stop.            No, No, No
Hey!                             No
C'mon guys.                  No, Yeah

EVERYONE:
Woah, Woah, Woah
Woah
Woah
Yeah

LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA:
Thighs up and straighten out your knees
Thighs up titillate and tease
Thighs up tourist Japanese love our thighs up
We will please Japanese with our thighs up
We will please Japanese with our thighs up

LESLIE ODOM JR.:
We will tease Japanese with our thighs up

EVERYONE:
We will please Japanese with our thighs up thighs up

LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA:
I imagine the death of theatre when they're singin "Memory"
Grizabella gets me in my sleep every night in bed with me
What an awful nightmare do I run or do I let it be
I'm frightened of a Lord Lloyd Webber melody
See I learn the classics by twenty
Where I'm from some around the caliente
Ask anybody how my father's vast and bombast records were glass
The Molly Brown movie cast soundtrack the plenty
Well I ain't down yet and there will come a time when nothing
Nor nobody wants me down like it want me up
Up where the people are up where the talkin' is up where the joke's going on

EVERYONE:
What'd'ya talk? What'd'ya talk? What'd'ya talk?

LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA:
I cannot be sure I'm as good as any old musical my daddy ever loved
Oh I hate that word down! But I love this song from Molly Brown
And you can always bet I'll make the great no sweat

EVERYONE:
I ain't down yet

LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA:
Scratch that, pretend you didn't hear that it's too dated
Calling my ultra cool brothers who rule understated

LESLIE ODOM JR.:
"Sit down dear boys. Sit down. You're rockin' the boat."

LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA:
Foes oppose us, we take an honest stands like Moses
Suppose-is his toes-is are roses-is
When Gene Kelly blows us away with his dance
And
Why theatre revolution will guarantee
A freedom for Broadway show pollution
Infusing blood that's new will start an endless
Cycle of musical depths is a solution
My new attraction has a score so excitin'
It's frightenin'
I have a dream I'm gonna renew Broadway
I'll mix old and new Broadway
If I do it well they'll learn how to spell

EVERYONE:
It's Lin Manuel

LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA:
Well someone tell me where are the answers
What's to theatre when is it hot
Work with me, revitalize Broadway
But please no

EVERYONE:
I am not gonna let Broadway rot
I am not gonna let Broadway rot
This is my own revolution a hip hop solution
And I'm not throwing away my shot

LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA:                            LESLIE ODOM JR.:
We're gonna rise up                                Sit down you're rockin' the boat

EVERYONE:
We're gonna rise up                                Sit down you're rockin' the boat
We'll keep our thighs up                          Sit down
It's time to smoke some pot thighs up       You're rocking
It's time to smoke some pot thighs up       The boat

EVERYONE:
Time to smoke some pot
Smoke a lot shot shot
Hey yo it's time to take a shot
Time to smoke some pot
And we love being the new big
Love being the new big shot!
