“Guns and Ships” from Hamilton

There are differing opinions on whether or not this is the fastest song in the history of musical theater, but it is without a doubt breakneck speed at points. I try to read along to spot mistakes when I make these videos, and I had to pause more than a few times. I hope people see/hear some lyrics they couldn’t get before.

A note: I’m not sure if he actually says “fluent in French, ami” (most sites have it as “I mean”), but that’s how I’ve always heard it et je l’aime comme ça.

  • No one has more resilience or matches my practical, tactical brilliance.- and all the aspiring rappers out there just got day jobs.
