“Hamilton”: A founding father takes to the stage

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0wboCdgzLHg

CBS Sunday Morning Ajoutée le 8 mars 2015 When Lin-Manuel Miranda sings about the drive of the “young, scrappy and hungry” immigrant, he’s not singing about just any immigrant. He’s singing about the man on the ten dollar bill, Alexander Hamilton. As Mo Rocca reports, Hamilton’s musical journey to the stage is as revolutionary as the young revolutionary who helped create the America we know..

[BURR]
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’ 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 confusin’, confoundin’ the British henchmen
Ev’ryone give it up for America’s favorite fighting Frenchman!

[COMPANY]
Lafayette!

[LAFAYETTE]
I’m takin this horse by the reins makin’
Redcoats redder with bloodstains

[COMPANY]
Lafayette!

[LAFAYETTE]
And I’m never gonna stop until I make ‘em
Drop and burn ‘em up and scatter their remains,
I’m

[COMPANY]
Lafayette!

[LAFAYETTE]
Watch me engagin’ em! Escapin’ em!
Enragin’ em! I’m—

[COMPANY]
Lafayette!

[LAFAYETTE]
I go to France for more funds

[COMPANY]
Lafayette!

[LAFAYETTE]
I come back with more

[LAFAYETTE AND ENSEMBLE]
Guns
And ships

And so the balance shifts

[WASHINGTON]
We rendezvous with Rochambeau, consolidate their gifts

[LAFAYETTE]
We can end this war at Yorktown, cut them off at sea, but
For this to succeed, there is someone else we need:

[WASHINGTON]
I know

[WASHINGTON AND COMPANY]
Hamilton!

[LAFAYETTE]
Sir, he knows what to do in a trench
Ingenuitive and fluent in French,
I mean—

[WASHINGTON AND COMPANY]
Hamilton!

[LAFAYETTE]
Sir, you’re gonna have to use him eventually
What’s he gonna do on the bench? I mean—

[WASHINGTON AND COMPANY]
Hamilton!

[LAFAYETTE]
No one has more resilience
Or matches my practical tactical brilliance—

[WASHINGTON AND COMPANY]
Hamilton!

[LAFAYETTE]
You wanna fight for your land back?

[WASHINGTON]
I need my right hand man back!

[LAFAYETTE]
Ah! Uh, get ya right hand man back
You know you gotta get ya right hand man back

I mean you gotta put some thought into the letter but the sooner the better
To get your right hand man back!

[COMPANY]
Hamilton!

[WOMEN]
Hamilton!

Hamilton!

Hamilton, Hamilton!
Ha— ha—!

[MEN]
Get your right hand man back!

Your right hand man back!

Hamilton!
Ha—
Ha—

Hamilton, Hamilton!
Ha— ha—!

[WASHINGTON]
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…
