    LYRICS:

    Electricity!
    Yeah, you can all thank me
    Took some lightning, a kite, and a fat brass key
    And they're putting up streetlights in Gay Paris
    You're welcome from our young nation

    I'm the only American the French wanna see
    They call me a genius, I can't disagree
    They have guns, they have funds
    They can set us free
    Invest in my reputation

    And do you know who the fuck I am?
    Yeah, do you know who the fuck I am?
    Do you know who the fuck I am?
    I am Poor-Richard's-Almanack-writing Benjamin Fuckin' Franklin

    I said, early to bed, bitches, early to rise
    They make a man healthy, wealthy, and wise
    Soldiers are fighting for freedom, they have no supplies
    So diplomacy happens at night

    John Adams debates at the gates of Versailles
    He whines and parades and awaits a reply
    As I stay up late with a succulent breast or a thigh
    Alright, diplomacy happens at night

    And do you know who the fuck I am?
    Yeah, do you know who the fuck I am?
    Do you know who the fuck I am?
    I am 76-and-I'll-Still-Kick-Your-Ass Fuckin' Franklin

    One pain that lingers, the hitch in my stride
    Is my son back at home who I could not guide
    Who sits all alone in a prison cell on the wrong side
    Stands against our young nation

    So I play my ambassador part with pride
    I am known in the world, and the world is wide
    To my children, my sins may be magnified, but I'd
    Do it all again, no hesitation

    And do you know who the fuck I am?
    Yeah, do you know who the fuck I am?
    Do you know who the fuck I am?
    I am Poor-Richard's-Almanack-writing Benjamin Fuckin' Franklin

    (Do you know who the fuck I am?) Who the fuck I am?
    (Do you know who the fuck I am?) Who the fuck I am?
    (Do you know who the fuck I am?)
    I am Poor-Richard's-Almanack-writing
    Polymath, bifocal-wearing
    Hardened glass-harmonica-playing
    Benjamin Fuckin' Franklin

    I feel like I'm the only one who came here for the Decemberists but came away knowing about Hamilton.
    I love this song though

  • The Model Folk Official

    It was in my head before we finally got to see Hamilton itself. Wonderful day, and a great musical. No blasted Meloy in it though. Ha ha. That would've ruled.

    After playing assassins creed 3 and meeting ben franklin. And after realizing how much of a man whore he was as well as how much he enjoyed bragging (key and kite never fucking happened) this fits my picture of him perfectly
