rate me

<br>

Adams:<br>

<br>

It's a masterpiece, I say!<br>

They will cheer every word, every letter<br>

Jefferson:<br>

I wish I felt that way <br>

Franklin:<br>

I believe I can put it better<br>

Now then attend, as friend to friend<br>

On our Declaration Committee<br>

For us I see immortality<br>

All:<br>

In Philadelphia City <br>

Franklin:<br>

A farmer, a lawyer, and a sage<br>

A bit gouty in the leg<br>

You know it's quite bizarre<br>

To think that here we are<br>

Playing midwives to an egg <br>

All:<br>

We're waiting for the chirp, chirp, chirp<br>

Of an eaglet being born<br>

We're waiting for the chirp, chirp, chirp<br>

On this humid Monday morning in this<br>

Congressional incubator<br>

Franklin:<br>

God knows the temperature's hot enough<br>

To hatch a stone, let alone an egg <br>

All:<br>

We're waiting for the scratch, scratch, scratch<br>

Of that tiny little fellow<br>

Waiting for the egg to hatch<br>

On this humid Monday morning in this<br>

Congressional incubator <br>

Adams:<br>

God knows the temperature's hot enough<br>

To hatch a stone <br>

Jefferson:<br>

But will it hatch an egg? <br>

Adams:<br>

The eagle's going to crack the shell<br>

Of the egg that England laid <br>

All:<br>

Yes, so we can tell, tell, tell<br>

On this humid Monday morning in this<br>

Congressional incubator<br>

Franklin:<br>

And as just as Tom here has written<br>

Though the egg may belong to Great Britain,<br>

The eagle inside belongs to us!<br>

All:<br>

And as just as Tom here has written<br>

We say to hell with Great Britain!<br>

The eagle inside belongs to us!<br>
