[ve:v1.2.3]
[00:00.01]I am not throwing away my shot
[00:02.26]I am not throwing away my shot
[00:04.78]Hey yo, I'm just like my country
[00:06.25]I'm young, scrappy and hungry
[00:07.33]And I'm not throwing away my shot
[00:09.84]I'ma get a scholarship to King's College
[00:11.86]I prob'ly shouldn't brag, but dag, I amaze and astonish
[00:14.58]The problem is I got a lot of brains but no polish
[00:17.35]I gotta holler just to be heard
[00:19.09]With every word, I drop knowledge
[00:20.86]I'm a diamond in the rough, a shiny piece of coal
[00:23.60]Tryin' to reach my goal my power of speech, unimpeachable
[00:26.36]Only nineteen but my mind is older
[00:28.60]These New York City streets get colder, I shoulder
[00:31.08]Every burden, every disadvantage
[00:32.60]I have learned to manage, I don't have a gun to brandish
[00:35.86]I walk these streets famished
[00:37.37]The plan is to fan this spark into a flame
[00:39.08]But damn, it's getting dark, so let me spell out the name
[00:42.34]I am the A-L-E-X-A-N-D-E-R we are meant to be
[00:47.11]A colony that runs independently
[00:49.84]Meanwhile, Britain keeps shittin' on us endlessly
[00:52.33]Essentially, they tax us relentlessly
[00:55.10]Then King George turns around, runs a spending spree
[00:57.86]He ain't ever gonna set his descendants free
[01:00.36]So there will be a revolution in this century
[01:03.11]Enter me, he says in parentheses
[01:05.60]Don't be shocked when your hist'ry book mentions me
[01:08.34]I will lay down my life if it sets us free
[01:11.10]Eventually, you'll see my ascendancy
[01:13.63]And I am not throwing away my shot
[01:16.10]I am not throwing away my shot
[01:18.62]Hey yo, I'm just like my country
[01:20.35]I'm young, scrappy and hungry
[01:21.86]And I'm not throwing away my shot
[01:24.11]I am not throwing away my shot
[01:26.61]I am not throwing away my shot
[01:29.17]Hey yo, I'm just like my country
[01:31.10]I'm young, scrappy and hungry
[01:32.36]And I'm not throwing away my shot
[01:34.60]It's time to take a shot
[01:36.08]I dream of life without a monarchy
[01:37.86]The unrest in France will lead to onarchy?
[01:40.36]Onarchy how you say, how you say, anarchy?
[01:43.10]When I fight, I make the other side panicky
[01:45.84]With my, shot
[01:47.33]Yo, I'm a tailor's apprentice
[01:48.36]And I got y'all knuckleheads in loco parentis
[01:50.85]I'm joining the rebellion 'cause I know it's my chance
[01:53.58]To socially advance, instead of sewin' some pants
[01:55.85]I'm gonna take a shot
[01:57.16]But we'll never be truly free
[01:58.85]Until those in bondage have the same rights as you and me
[02:01.34]You and I. Do or die. Wait till I sally in
[02:04.10]On a stallion with the first black battalion
[02:06.87]Have another shot
[02:07.88]Geniuses, lower your voices
[02:09.39]You keep out of trouble and you double your choices
[02:11.84]I'm with you, but the situation is fraught
[02:14.36]You've got to be carefully taught
[02:16.61]If you talk, you're gonna get shot
[02:18.86]Burr, check what we got
[02:20.36]Mister Lafayette, hard rock like Lancelot
[02:22.35]I think your pants look hot
[02:23.89]Laurens, I like you a lot
[02:25.12]Let's hatch a plot blacker than the kettle callin' the pot
[02:27.37]What are the odds the gods would put us all in one spot
[02:30.40]Poppin' a squat on conventional wisdom, like it or not
[02:32.87]A bunch of revolutionary manumission abolitionists?
[02:36.15]Give me a position, show me where the ammunition is
[02:38.85]Oh, am I talkin' too loud?
[02:41.10]Sometimes I get over excited, shoot off at the mouth
[02:43.65]I never had a group of friends before
[02:45.62]I promise that I'll make y'all proud
[02:47.63]Let's get this guy in front of a crowd
[02:49.13]I am not throwing away my shot
[02:51.63]I am not throwing away my shot
[02:54.15]Hey yo, I'm just like my country
[02:55.64]I'm young, scrappy and hungry
[02:57.14]And I'm not throwing away my shot
[02:59.43]I am not throwing away my shot
[03:02.18]I am not throwing away my shot
[03:04.70]Hey yo, I'm just like my country
[03:05.97]I'm young, scrappy and hungry
[03:07.47]And I'm not throwing away my shot
[03:09.70]Everybody sing
[03:10.96]Whoa, whoa, whoa
[03:13.96]Hey, whoa, whoa, whoa
[03:18.70]Ay, let 'em hear ya
[03:20.00]Let's go
[03:21.31]Whoa, whoa, whoa I said shout it to the rooftops
[03:25.07]Whoa, whoa, whoa said, to the rooftops
[03:27.60]Whoa, whoa, whoa come on
[03:31.06]Come on, let's go
[03:31.83]Rise up
[03:32.10]When you're living on your knees, you rise up
[03:34.84]Tell your brother that he's gotta rise up
[03:37.85]Tell your sister that she's gotta rise up
[03:40.64]When are these colonies gonna rise up?
[03:43.13]When are these colonies gonna rise up?
[03:45.64]When are these colonies gonna rise up?
[03:48.38]When are these colonies gonna rise up?
[03:50.91]Rise up
[03:51.87]I imagine death so much it feels more like a memory
[03:54.88]When's it gonna get me?
[03:56.12]In my sleep, seven feet ahead of me?
[03:58.11]If I see it comin', do I run or do I let it be?
[04:00.87]Is it like a beat without a melody?
[04:02.87]See, I never thought I'd live past twenty
[04:04.64]Where I come from some get half as many
[04:07.64]Ask anybody why we livin' fast and we laugh, reach for a flask
[04:11.62]We have to make this moment last, that's plenty
[04:13.94]Scratch that this is not a moment, it's the movement
[04:16.42]Where all the hungriest brothers with something to prove went?
[04:19.17]Foes oppose us, we take an honest stand
[04:22.18]We roll like Moses, claimin' our promised land
[04:24.93]And? If we win our independence?
[04:27.94]'Zat a guarantee of freedom for our descendants?
[04:30.43]Or will the blood we shed begin an endless cycle of vengeance and death with no defendants?
[04:35.43]I know the action in the street is excitin'
[04:37.92]But Jesus, between all the bleedin' 'n fightin'
[04:39.70]I've been readin' 'n writin'
[04:40.95]We need to handle our financial situation
[04:43.18]Are we a nation of states what's the state of our nation?
[04:46.43]I'm past patiently waitin' I'm passionatelymashin' every expectation
[04:49.99]Every action's an act of creation
[04:51.48]I'm laughin' in the face of casualties and sorrow
[04:53.73]For the first time, I'm thinkin' past tomorrow
[04:56.25]And I am not throwing away my shot
[04:58.98]I am not throwing away my shot
[05:01.48]Hey yo, I'm just like my country
[05:03.23]I'm young, scrappy and hungry
[05:04.75]And I'm not throwing away my shot
[05:06.74]We're gonna rise up (time to take a shot)
[05:08.75]We're gonna rise up (time to take a shot)
[05:12.50]We're gonna, rise up, rise up
[05:14.73]It's time to take a shot
[05:15.54]Rise up, rise up, it's time to take a shot
[05:17.98]Rise up, it's time to take a shot
[05:19.82]Rise up, take a shot, shot, shot
[05:23.06]It's time to take a shot, time to take a shot
[05:25.54]And I am not throwing away my shot
[05:27.28]Not throwing away my shot
