In The Heights the Musical - 96,000 Lyrics

Original song "96,000" from the musical IN THE HEIGHTS is written by Lin-Manuel Miranda.

USNAVI: 96,000...


USNAVI: 96,000...

SONNY: Dollers? Holla.

USNAVI: 96,000...

BENNY: Yo, somebody won!

USNAVI: 96,000...

BENNY: Yo... If I won the lotto tomorrow
well I know
I wouldn't bother going on no spending spree
I'd pick a business school and pay the entrance fee
Then maybe, if you're lucky, you'll stay friends with me.
I'll be a business man,
richer than Nina's daddy,
Donald Trump and I on the links,
and he's my caddy
My money's making money, I'm going from po' to moto
Keep the bling, I want the brass ring like frodo!

USNAVI: Oh no, there goes mr. Braggadocio
Next thing you know, you're lying like pinnochio

BENNY: Well if you're scared of the bull, stay out of the rodeo!

GRAFFITI PETE: Yo, I got more hoes than a phone book in tokyo!

USNAVI! Ooh, you'd better stop rappin'
You're not ready
It's gonna get hot and heavy and you're already sweaty-

GRAFFITI PETE: y-y-yo-yo

USNAVI: Yo, I'm sorry, was that an answer?
Shut up, go home and pull your damn pants up!
As for you, Mr. Frodo of the shire, 96 gs ain't enough to retire

BENNY: I'll have enough to knock your ass of its axis!

USNAVI: You'll have a knapsack full of jack after taxes!

SONNY: 96,000!

ABUELA CLAUDIA: ay, alabanza!

SONNY: 96,000!

DANIELA/CARLA: No me diga!

SONNY: 96,000!

VANESSA: I never win shit!

SONNY: 96,000!

BENNY: For real, though,
imagine how it must feel going real slow
down the highway of life
with no regrets
and no breaking your neck for respect or a paycheck
for real, though, I'll take a break from the wheel
and we'll throw the biggest block party, everybody here
It's a weekend when we can breathe, take it easy

NEIGHBORS: Yo! ma, it's me, check my tickets!

CARLA: Check one two three what would you do with 96 gs?

DANIELA: who, me?

CARLA: I mean, if it's just between you and me-

DANIELA: Esa pregunta es tricky!

CARLA: I know!

DANIELA: With 96 g,
I'd start my life with a brand new lease
atlantic city with a malibu breeze

CARLA: And a brand new weave-

DANIELA: Or maybe just bleach...

VANESSA: Y'all are freaks

USNAVI: Yo, I'm just sayin...
it's silly when we get into
these crazy hypotheticals
you really want some bread
then go ahead and create a set of goals
and cross them off the list as you pursue them
and with those 96 i know precisely what i'm doing

VANESSA: What you doing?

USNAVI: What am i doing? what am I doing?
It takes most of that cash just to save my ass from financial ruin
sonny can keep the coffee brewin'
and i'll spend a few on you
cause the only room with a view's a room with you in it
and i could give abuela claudia the rest of it
just fly me down to puerta plata, I'll make the best of it
You really love this business?


USNAVI: Tough, merry christmas.
You're now the youngest tycoon in washington hiznits.

with 96,000, I'd finally fix housing
give the barrio computers and wireless web browsing
Your kids are living without a good edumacation change the station,
teach them about gentrification, the rent is escalating


SONNY: The rich are penetrating


SONNY: We pay our corporations
when we should be demonstrating


SONNY: What about immigration?


Sonny: Racism in this nation's gone from latent to balatent!

Community: OOOH!

Sonny: I'll cash my ticket and picket
Invest in protest never lose my focus till the
city takes notice and you know this, man!
I'll never sleep
Because the ghetto has a
Million promises for me to keep!

VANESSA: You are so cute!

SONNY: I was just thinking off the top of my head.

USNAVI: 96k. go.

Vanessa: If I win the lottery
you'll never see me again.

Usnavi: Damn, we only jokin. Stay broke, then!

Vanessa: I'll be downtown
get a nice studio
get out of the barrio

Usnavi, Vanessa, Benny together (Benny 2X Usnavi 2X)

Benny: For real, though.
Imagine how it would feel
goin' real slow
down the highway of life
with no regrets
and no breakin' your neck for respect
or a paycheck -

Vanessa: If I win the lottery
You'll wonder where I've been
I'll be downtown,
see you around
If I win the lottery,
you won't see a lot of me!

Usnavi: It's silly when we get into these crazy hypotheticals,
you really want some bread then go ahead,
create a set of goals and cross them off the list as you pursue em',
and with those Ninety six I know precisely what I'm doing!
