1776 The New Cast Recording movie - Lees of Old Virginia

rate me

<br>

Lee:<br>

My name is Richard Henry Lee; Virginia is my home<br>

My name is Richard Henry Lee; Virginia is my home<br>

And my horses turn to glue if I can't deliver<br>

Unto you a resolution on independency!<br>

<br>

For I am FFV, the first family<br>

In the sovereign colony of Virginia<br>

Yes I am FFV, the oldest family<br>

in the oldest colony in America<br>

And may the British burn my land if I can't deliver<br>

To your hand a resolution on independency!<br>

<br>

You see it's here-a-Lee, there-a-Lee<br>

And everywhere-a-Lee-a-Lee<br>

<br>

Social-Lee, political-Lee, financial-Lee, natural-Lee<br>

Internal-Lee, external-Lee, fraternal-Lee, eternal-Lee<br>

<br>

The FFV, the first family<br>

In the sovereign colony of Virginia<br>

And may my wife refuse my bed if I can't deliver<br>

As I said a resolution on independency<br>

<br>

They say that God in heaven is everybody's God<br>

I'll admit that God in heaven is everybody's God<br>

But I tell you, John, with pride, God leans<br>

A little on the side of the Lees, the Lees of old Virgina!<br>

<br>

You see it's here-a-Lee, there-a-Lee<br>

And everywhere-a-Lee-a-Lee<br>

Here-a-Lee, there-a-Lee<br>

And everywhere-a-Lee<br>

<br>

Look out! There's Arthur Lee, Bobby Lee<br>

And General Lighthorse Harry Lee<br>

Willy Lee, Jesse Lee<br>

<br>

Franklin:<br>

And Richard H.! <br>

Lee:<br>

That's me!<br>

And may my blood stop running blue if I can't deliver<br>

Unto you a resolution on independency!<br>

<br>

Yes sir, by God, it's here-a-Lee, there-a-Lee<br>

Come on boys join in with me!<br>

Here-a-Lee, there-a-Lee!<br>

<br>

Franklin:<br>

When do you leave? <br>

Lee:<br>

Immediate-Lee!<br>

Here-a-Lee, there-a-Lee!<br>

Franklin:<br>

When will you return? <br>

Lee:<br>

Short-Lee!<br>

Here-a-Lee, there-a-Lee!<br>

And I'll come back triumphant-Lee!<br>

Here-a-Lee, there-a-Lee!<br>

Everywhere a-Lee-a-Lee<br>

<br>

Forward ho!<br>
