Guns and Ships (大槍巨船) (《漢密爾頓》音樂劇插曲) - Leslie Odom, Jr./Original Broadway Cast of Hamilton/Daveed Diggs/Christopher Jackson

(《 亞歷山大·漢米爾頓》音樂劇插曲)


How does a ragtag volunteer army in need of a shower


Somehow defeat a global superpower


How do we emerge victorious from the quagmire


Leave the battlefield waving Betsy Ross' flag higher

Yo turns out we have a secret weapon

An immigrant you know and love who's unafraid to step in

He's constantly confusin' confoundin' the British henchmen

Ev'ryone give it up for America's favorite fighting Frenchman



I'm taking this horse by the reins makin'

Redcoats redder with bloodstains


And I'm never gonna stop until I make 'em

Drop and burn 'em up and scatter their remains I'm


Watch me engaging em

Escapin' em

Enraging em I'm


I go to France for more funds


I come back with more



And ships

And so the balance shifts


We rendezvous with Rochambeau consolidate their gifts

We can end this war at Yorktown cut them off at sea but

For this to succeed there is someone else we need

I know


Sir he knows what to do in a trench

Ingenuitive and fluent in French I mean


Sir you're gonna have to use him eventually

What's he gonna do on the bench I mean


No one has more resilience

Or matches my practical tactical brilliance


You wanna fight for your land back

I need my right hand man back

Ah uh get ya right hand man back


You know you gotta get ya right hand man back

I mean you gotta put some thought into the letter but the sooner the better

To get your right hand man back

Alexander Hamilton


Troops are waiting in the field for you


If you join us right now together we can turn the tide


Oh Alexander Hamilton


I have soldiers that will yield for you


If we manage to get this right


They'll surrender by early light



The world will never be the same Alexander
