In The Heights the Musical - Benny's Dispatch Lyrics

Original song "Benny's Dispatch" from the musical In The Heights is written by Lin-Manuel Miranda.

BENNY: Check 1 2 3 Check 1 2 3
This is Benny on the dispatch, yo
Atencion, yo, attention,
It's Benny and I'd like to mention
I'm on the microphone this mornin
Honk ya horn if ya want it
Okay, we got traffic on the west side
Get off at 79th and take the left side
Of Riverside Drive and ya might slide
West End's ya best best friend if you catch the lights
And don't take Deegan
Manny Ramirez is in town this weekend
Sorry Dominicans, take Route 87, you ain't getting back in again
Hold up a minute

NINA: Benny, hey-

BENNY: Nina, you're home today!

NINA: Any sign-

BENNY: Of your folks, they're on their way

NINA: Anyway-

BENNY: It's good to see your face

NINA: Anytime

BENNY: Hold up a minute, wait
You used to run this dispatch, right?

NINA: Once or twice-

BENNY: Well check the technique! yo!
There's a traffic accident I have to mention
At the intersection of 10th ave and the Jacob Javitz Convention Center
And check it, don't get stuck in the rubber-neckin on 192nd
There's a double-decker bus wreck
Now listen up we got a special guest
Live and direct from a year out west
Welcome her back, cuz she looks mad stressed
Nina Rosario, the barrio's best
Honk your horns
She's smiling
Say hello

NINA: (into the radio) Hello. Good morning!
(She hands back the radio)
I better find my folks
Thanks for the welcome wagon

BENNY: Anytime, Anytime, Nina
Wait here with me
It's getting hot outside, turn up the AC
Stay here with me
