Guns and Ships Lyrics - Hamilton | LyricsAdvisor
Singer : Original Broadway Cast Of Hamilton
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's 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 confusing, confounding the British henchmen
Everyone give it up for America's favorite fighting Frenchman
Lafayette!
I'm taking this horse by the reins
Making redcoats redder with bloodstains
Lafayette!
And I'm never gonna stop until I make 'em drop
And burn 'em up and scatter the remains
I'm—Lafayette!
Watch me engaging 'em, escaping 'em, enraging 'em, ow
Lafayette!
I go to France for more funds
Lafayette!
I come back with more guns
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 (Hamilton!)
Sir, he knows what to do in the trench
Ingenuitive and fluent in French
I mean (Hamilton!)
Sir, you're going to have to use him eventually
What's he going to do on the bench
I mean (Hamilton!)
No one has more resilience
Or matches my practical, tactical brilliance (Hamilton!)
You want to fight for your land back? (Hamilton!)
I need my right hand man back (Hamilton!)
(Ah, uh, ) get your right hand man back (Hamilton!)
(You know you gotta get ya) right hand man back(Hamilton!)
I mean, you gotta put some thought into the letter (Ha- Ha-)
(Hamilton, Hamilton) But the sooner the better
To get your right hand man back (Ha- Ha-)
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
