Immigrants (We Get the Job Done) (《漢密爾頓》音樂劇插曲) - K'naan/Snow tha Product/Riz MC/Residente

Written by:Residente/Snow Tha Product/Riz MC, K'naan/Lin-Manuel Miranda

 

You know

And it gets into this whole issue of border security

You know

Who's gonna say that the borders are secure

We've got the house and the senate debating this issue

And it's

And it's astonishing that in a country founded by immigrants

 

Immigrant has somehow become a bad word

 

So the debate rages on and we continue

 

And just like that it's over

We tend to our wounded

We count our dead

Black and white soldiers wonder alike if this really means freedom

 

Not yet

 

I got 1 job

2 job

3 when I need them

 

I got 5 roommates in this one studio

But I never really see them

 

And we all came America trying to get a lap dance from Lady Freedom

 

But now Lady Liberty is acting like Hilary Banks with a pre-nup

 

Man I was brave sailing on graves

Don't think I didn't notice those tombstones disguised as waves

I'm no dummy here is something funny

You can be an immigrant without risking your lives

Or crossing these borders with thrifty supplies

All you got to do is see the world with new eyes

Immigrants we get the job done

 

Look how far I come

 

Look how far I come

 

Look how far I come

 

We get the job done

 

Look how far I come

 

Look how far I come

 

Look how far I come

 

Immigrants we get the job done

It's a hard line when you're an import

Baby boy it's hard times

When you ain't sent for

Racists feed the belly of the beast

With they pitchforks rich chores

Done by the people that get ignored

 

Ya se armó

Ya se despertaron

It's a whole awakening

La alarma ya sonó hace rato

Los que quieren buscan

Pero nos apodan como vagos

We are the same ones

Hustling on every level

Ten los datos

Walk a mile in our shoes

Abrochenze los zapatos

I been scoping ya dudes

Ya'll ain't been working like I do

I'll outwork you

It hurts you

You claim I'm stealing jobs though

Peter Piper claimed he picked them

He just underpaid Pablo

But there ain't a paper trail when you living in the shadows

We're America's ghost writers

The credit's only borrowed

It's a matter of time before the checks all come

But

Immigrants

We get the job done

 

Look how far I come

 

Look how far I come

 

Look how far I come

 

We get the job done

 

Look how far I come

 

Look how far I come

 

Look how far I come

 

Immigrants

 

We get the job

Not yet

 

The credit is only borrowed

It's America's ghost writers

The credit's only borrowed

It's America's ghost writers

America's ghost writers

America's ghost writers

The credit's only borrow borrowed

It's Americas ghost writers

A credit is only borrowed

It's Americas ghost writers

A credit is only borrowed

It's Americas ghost writers

A credit is only borrowed

It's

Immigrants

We get the job done

 

Ay yo aye

Immigrants we don't like that

Na they don't play British empire strikes back

They beating us like 808's and high hats

At our own game of invasion but this ain't Iraq

Who these fugees what did they do for me

But contribute new dreams

Taxes and tools swagger and food to eat

Cool they flee war zones but the problem ain't ours

Even if our bombs landed on them like the Mayflower

 

Buckingham Palace or Capitol Hill

 

Blood of my ancestors had that all built

It's the ink you print on your dollar bill oil you spill

Thin red lines on the flag you hoist when you kill

But still we just say look how far I come

Hindustan Pakistan to London

To a galaxy far from their ignorance

Cos

Immigrants

We get the job done

Por tierra o por agua

Identidad falsa

Brincamos muros o flotamos en balsas

La peleamos como Sandino en Nicaragua

Somos como las plantas que crecen sin agua

 

Sin pasaporte americano

Porque la mitad de gringolandia Es terreno mexicano

Hay que ser bien hijo e puta

Nosotros Les Sembramos el árbol y ellos se comen la fruta

 

Somos los que cruzaron

Aquí vinimos a buscar el oro que nos robaron

Tenemos mas trucos que la policí a secreta

Metimos la casa completa en una maleta

 

Con un pico

Una pala

Y un rastrillo

 

Te construimos un castillo

Como es que dice el coro cabrón

Immigrants

We get the job done

 

Look how far I come

 

Look how far I come

 

Look how far I come

 

We get the job done

 

Look how far I come

 

Look how far I come

 

Look how far I come

 

Immigrants

We get the job done

 

Look how far I come

 

Look how far I come

 

Look how far I come

 

Immigrants

We get the job done
