[ve:v1.2.3]
[00:04.75]The battle of Yorktown, 1781
[00:11.01]Monsieur Hamilton
[00:11.74]Monsieur Lafayette
[00:13.01]In command where you belong
[00:14.25]How you say, no sweat
[00:15.29]Finally on the field. We've had quite a run
[00:17.76]Immigrants, we get the job done
[00:21.47]So what happens if we win?
[00:23.01]I go back to France
[00:23.75]I bring freedom to my people
[00:25.26]If I'm given the chance
[00:26.24]We'll be with you when you do
[00:27.72]Go lead your men
[00:28.76]See you on the other side
[00:30.01]'Til we meet again, let's go!
[00:30.99]I am not throwin' away my shot!
[00:33.53]I am not throwin' away my shot!
[00:35.77]Hey yo, I'm just like my country
[00:37.48]I'm young scrappy and hungry
[00:38.49]And I'm not throwin' away my shot!
[00:41.00]I am not throwin' away my shot!
[00:43.24]'Til the world turns upside down
[00:45.73]'Til the world turns upside down!
[00:50.74]I imagine death so much it feels more like a memory
[00:53.01]This is where it gets me: on my feet the enemy ahead of me
[00:55.75]If this is the end of me, at least I have a friend with me
[00:58.24]Weapon in my hand, a command, and my men with me.
[01:00.75]Then I remember my Eliza's expecting me
[01:03.24]Not only that, my Eliza's expecting.
[01:06.00]We gotta go, gotta get the job done
[01:08.00]Gotta start a new nation, gotta meet my son!
[01:10.51]Take the bullets out your gun!
[01:11.49]What?
[01:11.99]The bullets out your gun!
[01:12.75]What?
[01:13.50]We move undercover and we move as one
[01:15.27]Through the night, we have one shot to live
[01:17.32]Another day.
[01:17.82]We cannot let a stray gunshot give us away.
[01:20.34]We will fight up close, seize the moment and stay in it.
[01:23.11]It's either that or meet the business end of
[01:24.60]A bayonet.
[01:25.59]The code word is 'Rochambeau, ' dig me?
[01:27.33]Rochambeau!
[01:28.09]You have your orders now, go, man, go!
[01:30.09]And so the American experiment begins
[01:32.36]With my friends all scattered to the winds.
[01:34.33]Laurens is in South Carolina, redefining
[01:37.34]Brav'ry.
[01:37.84]We'll never be free until we end slavery!
[01:39.58]When we finally drive the British away
[01:42.12]Lafayette is there waiting in Chesapeake Bay!
[01:44.84]How did we know that this plan would work?
[01:47.33]We had a spy on the inside. That's right
[01:49.36]Hercules Mulligan!
[01:50.63]A tailor spyin' on the British government!
[01:52.08]I take their measurements, information and then I smuggle it!
[01:54.33]Up
[01:55.61]To my brother's revolutionary covenant
[01:57.08]I'm runnin' with the Sons of Liberty and I am lovin' it!
[02:00.12]See, that's what happens when you up against the ruffians.
[02:02.13]We in the shit now, somebody gotta shovel it!
[02:04.61]Hercules Mulligan, I need no introduction
[02:06.85]When you knock me down I get the fuck back up again!
[02:16.92]Left! Right! Hold!
[02:19.92]Go!
[02:21.95]What! What! What!
[02:38.92]After a week of fighting, a young man in a red coat stands on a parapet.
[02:44.92]We lower our guns as he frantically waves a white handkerchief.
[02:49.69]And just like that, it's over. We tend to our wounded, we count our dead.
[02:53.42]Black and white soldiers wonder alike if this really means freedom.
[02:57.21]Not yet
[02:58.67]We negotiate the terms of surrender.
[03:01.18]I see George Washington smile.
[03:03.69]We escort their men out of Yorktown.
[03:06.20]They stagger home single file.
[03:08.93]Tens of thousands of people flood the streets.
[03:11.42]There are screams and church bells ringing.
[03:13.92]And as our fallen foes retreat
[03:15.92]I hear the drinking song they're singing
[03:18.17]The world turned upside down
[03:23.16]The world turned upside down
[03:27.93]The world turned upside down
[03:32.95]The world turned upside down
[03:36.70]Down, down, down, down
[03:41.24]Freedom for America, freedom for France!
[03:42.76]Down, down, down
[03:45.25]Gotta start a new nation, gotta meet my son
[03:47.78]Down, down, down
[03:50.50]We won!
[03:51.27]We won!
[03:51.76]We won!
[03:52.30]We won!
[03:53.27]The world turned upside down!
