Chatterbox: Pudding's Place



So... I'm not sure how many of you guys like Hamilton but this thread is just for anything Hamilton, it can become a thread to see if we can sing all the lyrics (censor out bad words/inapropriate stuff obviosouly) or just to talk about it :)

Ha, do I like Hamilton? Totally not... Totally not like I'm reading a book called Hamilton and Peggy! (but they should've titled it And Peggy! b/c Hamilton is, like, barely in it, so)... Totally not like I tried to sing all of Hamilton (including Laurens's Interlude) during a tubing trip thing but stopped b/c people kept yelling at me to shut up... Totslly not like today I sing Conratulations and No John Trumbull b/c I memorized them so why not... Totally not like I have the Hamilton playbill on my wall from when I saw it when I was little... Totally not like I have a art thing I drew of me and two of my friends as the Schuyler Sisters... /sarc

...I think I've proved my point...  

What's your favorite song(s) to listen to/to sing/to dance to?

I love Schuyler Sisters to listen to and sing and do the motions along to and just overall. Tied with Schuyler Sisters, I also adore Dear Theodosia. Room Where It  Happens for dance. Guns and Ships to sing b/c it's fun. One of my favs is is Congratulations. Ooh, I also love Story of Tonight. And What Did I Miss. And Washington On Your Side. And Aaron Burr, Sir. And I could go on for a while but it's late and I should be in bed by now oops.

Let's see how far we can get into singing the entire musical (no copy and paste please)

How does a -- , orphan, son of a -- and a Scotsman, dropped in the middle of a forgotten spot in the Carribean by providence impoverished in squalor, grow up to be a hero and a scholar?

The ten dollar founding father without a father got a lot farther by working a lot harder by being a lot smarter by being a self starter by fourteen, they placed him in charge of a trading charter.

And every day while slaves were being slaughtered and carted away across the waves he struggled and kept his guard up.  Inside he was longing for something to be a part of, the brother was ready to steal, beg, borrow or barter.

Then a hurricane came, and devastation reigned, our man saw his future drip-dripping down the drain, put a pencil to his temple connected it to his brain, and he wrote his first refrain, a testament to his pain

Well the word got around, they said "this kid is insane, man!" Took up a collection just to send him to the mainland! "Get your education, don't forget from whence you came!  The world's gonna know your name." What's your name, man?

Alexander Hamilton
My name is Alexander Hamilton
And there's a million things I haven't done
But just you wait, just you wait
When he was ten his father split, full of it, debt-ridden
Two years later, see Alex and his mother bed-ridden
Half-dead sittin' in their own sick, the scent thick
And Alex got better but his mother went quick
Moved in with a cousin, the cousin yeah... we're just not gonna talk about the cousin
Left him with nothin' but ruined pride, something new inside
A voice saying, "Alex, you gotta fend for yourself"

Talk less
smile more
don't let them know what you're against or what you're for
you can't be serious
you wanna get ahead?
fools who runs their mouths off wind up dead

Even tho I've never seen it I'm a Hamilfan! I don't enjoy the bad language but aaaaaa the rap is so good!!!

Cause I've been reading common sense by Thomas Paine, some people say that I'm intense or I'm insane. You want a revolution? I want a revelation! So listen to my declaration: we hold these truths to be so self evident that all men are created equal. So when I meet Thomas Jefferson (oh) imma tell him to include women in the sequel! ( work!)

Look around, look around at how lucky we are to be alive right now, look around look around look around at how lucky we are to be alive right now, history is happening in Manhattan and we just happen to be in the greatest city of the world, in the greatest city of the wooooorld


Yeah, that was cringe...
