Hamilton First Draft

No first draft is perfect. Here's an exclusive look at the "first draft" of a song from Lin-Manuel Miranda's Pulitzer prize-winning/ Tony award-winning hip-hop Broadway sensation as the most well-researched mainstream rap album about a founding father based on a biography one picks up for vacations, Hamilton.

I'm John Laurens, in the place to be
Ya think Philip is cute? Well, look at me! (Ha)
Those redcoats don't want it with me
'Cause I'll WHEE chicka-WHEEEEE those Brits 'til I'm free!!!! 
Lock up your daughters and horses 
'Cause I f*** horses, of course
What's that? 
I mean I like horses, of course

"You do what I tell you to do! That's the nature of this relationship. Like, you are an inanimate, soulless object whose purpose is to turn on my f*cking lights when I tell you! Right? Your purpose is not to tell me what to do. You don't tell me what to do! [...] You'd better not be giving me, like, this little assy remark, about, like, 'Oh, I'll tap you when I'm ready.' Like, I'll tap YOU when I'm ready! That's how this relationship works! It's infuriating." ~CGP Grey, speaking with Brady Haran, H.I. #72, 17:13
