Working - Delivery Lyrics

2012 Revised Version
Working the Musical - Delivery Lyrics


(Lin-Manuel Miranda)

FREDDY
This is my first job
I smell like a burger
The register is easy
Hey, you want a burger?
I hit the picture of the burger

Ev'ry day, the same old thing
Hello, chicken nuggets, quarter pounder
And I wait for that phone to ring, that phone to ring
The phone at the end of the counter

When I see the manager writing down an order
When I see the manager making change
When I see the manager writing an address
I whisper, "Yes!"
Give me some change
And send me on my way, okay

I'm off on a delivery
And I'm finally on my own
ALL
Off on a delivery
FREDDY
Delivery! Peace!
And I'm headed to parts unknown
ALL
Off on a delivery, delivery
FREDDY
Fresh air and exercise
And sometimes I throw in some extra fries
For calling it in today
My world is gray
Until they send me away
ALL
On a delivery
FREDDY
Now the wind is in my hair
ALL
Off on a delivery
FREDDY
No one's watching me
I can wander anywhere

But the food is getting cold
So I do as I am told
Responsibility
I have responsibilities
See, my father sits at home
He doesn't work anymore
While my mother works a double shift
At the department store
And it's nice not having to ask for money
And it's nice not having to ask for dinner
And it's nice on night when you have to get away
ALL
I need delivery

FREDDY
I go to work ev'ry day
I'm putting money away
Hey, you know what they say
Slow and steady
I'm making minimum wage
That's pretty good for my age
If I can manage to save
ALL
I'll be ready to go
FREDDY
Wherever I gotta go
Wherever destiny leads
For now the restaurant feeds me
And my family needs me

Delivery!
ALL
Yes!
FREDDY
The customer's always right
ALL
Where's my delivery, my delivery?
FREDDY
Thanks for getting me out of the house tonight
ALL
Where's my delivery?
FREDDY
I keep the orders straight and I say sorry if I'm late
ALL
You're late!
FREDDY
Some extra napkins for your plate
For making you wait
That'll be $12.98
ALL
For your delivery
FREDDY
I can wander out of range
ALL
Here's my delivery, my delivery
FREDDY
Towards a future new and strange
ALL
Here's my delivery
FREDDY
This job is just the start
But wait!
I haven't told you my favorite part
It's when they pay
And then they say...
ALL
Say, say...

REX, spoken
Fuck it, keep the change.

FREDDY
Keep the change
WOMEN
Keep the change
FREDDY+MEN
Keep the change
WOMEN
Keep the change
FREDDY
Keep the change
MEN
Keep the change
WOMEN
Hey, kid, keep the change!

FREDDY
And bit by bit I keep the change
MEN (WOMEN)

Hey-ey
FREDDY
If I save a little every day
MEN (WOMEN)

MEN (WOMEN)

And I'll look back on this and say...
ALL

Thank god for
