1776 - But, Mr. Adams





 

Artist: 1776
Album: Musical/Ost
Title: But, Mr. Adams

Franklin:
Mr. Adams, I say you should write it
To your legal mind and brilliance we defer

Adams:
Is that so? Well, if I'm the one to do it
They'll run their quill pens through it
I'm obnoxious and disliked, you know that, sir

Franklin:
Yes, I know

Adams:
So I say you should write it Franklin, yes you

Franklin:
Hell, no!

Adams:
Yes, you, Dr. Franklin, you
but, you, but, you, but

Franklin:
Mr. Adams, but, Mr. Adams
The things I write are only light extemporania
I won't put politics on paper; it's a mania
So I refuse to use the pen in Pennsylvania

Others:
Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania, refuse to use the pen

Adams:
Mr. Sherman, I say you should write it
You are never controversial as it were

Sherman:
That is true

Adams:
Whereas if I'm the one to do it
They'll run their quill pens through it
I'm obnoxious and disliked, you know that, sir

Sherman:
Yes, I do

Adams:
So I say you should write it, Sherman, yes you

Sherman:
Good heavens, no!

Adams:
Yes you, Roger Sherman, you
but, you, but, you, but

Sherman:
Mr. Adams, but, Mr. Adams
I cannot write with any style or proper etiquette
I don't know a participle from a predicate
I am just a simple cobbler from Connecticut

Others:
Connecticut, Connecticut, a simple cobbler he

Adams:
Mr. Livingston, maybe you should write it
You have many friends and you're a diplomat

Franklin:
Oh, that word!

Adams:
Whereas if I'm the one to do it
They'll run their quill pens through it

Others:
He's obnoxious and disliked; did you know that?
Livingston:
I hadn't heard

Adams:
So I say you should write it, Robert, yes you
Livingston:
Not me, Johnny!

Adams:
Yes you, Robert Livingston, you
but you but you but

Livingston:
Mr. Adams, dear Mr. Adams
I've been presented with a new son by the noble stork
So I am going home to celebrate and pop the cork
With all the Livingstons together back in old New York

Others:
New York, New York, Livingston's going to pop a cork

Jefferson:
Mr. Adams, leave me alone!

Adams:
Mr. Jefferson, dear Mr. Jefferson
I'm only 41; I still have my virility
And I can romp through Cupid's Grove with great agility
But life is more than sexual combustibility

Others:
Combustibility, combustibility, combustibili...

Jefferson:
Mr. Adams, damn you Mr. Adams
You're obnoxious and disliked; that cannot be denied
Once again you stand between me and my lovely bride
Oh, Mr. Adams, you are driving me to homicide!

Others:
Homicide, homicide, we may see murder yet!
