Spamilton - Lin-Manuel As Hamilton Lyrics

2016 An American Parody of the Broadway show Hamilton
Spamilton the Musical - Lin-Manuel As Hamilton Lyrics

LESLIE ODOM JR.:
How does a whippersnapper
Student of rap and a Latin
Trapped in the middle of a Manhattan flat
Win Broadway accolades
While other writers kiss the corporate dollar
Grow up to be a hip hop opera scholar?

DAVEED DIGGS:
This blue collar shining beacon Peurto Rican
Got a lot farther
By being a lot smarter
By stretching rhymes harder
By being a trend starter
By fourteen, they placed him in a school with a music charter

LESLIE ODOM JR.:
And everyday while shows were being slaughtered on Broadway
They played, he stayed away
He struggled, but in an odd way
Inside, he was longing to build a better Broadway
The brother was ready to cut clean in the Sweeney Todd way

OKEIRIETE ONADOWAN:
His first hurricane came and In The Heights the name
Our man wrote his future hit sittin' on a train
Put a pencil to his temple and stuck it into his brain
And he wrote his first refrain while hollerin’ out in pain

LESLIE ODOM JR.:
Well, the word got around they said
“This kid is insane, man!”
On closer inspection he's a salsa hip hop main man
Broadway's been less crappy since the happy day you came
And the world’s gonna know your name
What's your game man?

LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA:
Lin-Manuel as Hamilton
That's me I'm Lin-Manuel as Hamilton
And there's a million songs I haven't trashed
But just you wait
Just you wait

RENÉE ELISE GOLDSBERRY:
When he was ten he saw Camelot it was hot
But led in ten years later saw Spamelot
And where Broadway was heading
Half dead with a campus so thick it looked sick

EVERYONE:
He swore he would fix it but he wasn't so quick

OKIERIETE ONADOWAN:
He saw Little Mermaid it made him
Think of suicide
Disney was nothing but goo inside
He felt blue inside
A voice saying
“You gotta rap for yourself”
He started snapping and rapping
Every record on the shelf

RENÉE ELISE GOLDSBERRY:
He started taping and making mixes quite astute
After he read a book of great repute about the constitution

DAVEED DIGGS:
Started working
Perking
A hip hop mixtape
He mixed up history and himself and now he can't escape

LESLIE ODOM JR.:
It’s a half history book, half Aragon buy on
Now, he’s the future he's a theatre icon
He’s half Hamilton, half can of cold spam

RENÉE ELISE GOLDSBERRY:
But in New York he can be a real ham

EVERYONE & LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA:
In New York you can
Be a real ham Just you wait...
Or you can be a
Can of cold spam Just you wait...

LESLIE ODOM JR.:
It's your choice, Hamilton
Hamlet or ham?

RENÉE ELISE GOLDSBERRY & MEN
In New York. New York

[LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA:
Just you wait!

RENÉE ELISE GOLDSBERRY:
Lin-Manuel as Hamilton

MEN:
‘Tis a ham in Spamilton

RENÉE ELISE GOLDSBERRY:
Fame is waiting in the wings for you

EVERYONE:
You may have left town
You must have needed some downtime
You left the show as Hamilton

LESLIE ODOM JR.:
You left the show as Hamilton

EVERYONE:
But Spamilton clings to you
Will they know we misquote your name?
Will they know we rewrote your fame?
Your score will never be the same oh

LESLIE ODOM JR.:
The tiny doll we got from props is coming, can you spot him?
Forgive the flimsy plastic boat, our budget's at the bottom

OKIERIETE ONADOWAN:
The Barbie Lin-Manuel just fell!

RENÉE ELISE GOLDSBERRY:
Thank god somebody caught him!

DAVEED DIGGS:
Me? I save his ass

RENÉE ELISE GOLDSBERRY:
Me? I give him sass

OKIERIETE ONADOWAN:
Me? I'm full of gas

LESLIE ODOM JR.:
Me? I’m the damn fool who slays him

LIN-MANUEL AS HAMILTON:
Me? I'm the damn fool who plays him!

EVERYONE:
And there's a dozen songs we haven't trashed
But just you wait!

LESLIE ODOM JR.:
Who we spoofin', man?

EVERYONE:
Lin-Manuel as Hamilton!
