1776 The New Cast Recording movie - Molasses to Rum

rate me

<br>

Rutledge:<br>

Molasses to rum to slaves, oh what a beautiful waltz<br>

You dance with us, we dance with you<br>

Molasses and rum and slaves<br>

<br>

Who sails the ships out of Boston<br>

Ladened with bibles and rum?<br>

Who drinks a toast to the Ivory Coast?<br>

Hail Africa, the slavers have come<br>

New England with bibles and rum<br>

<br>

And its off with the rum and the bibles<br>

Take on the slaves, clink, clink<br>

Hail and farewell to the smell<br>

Of the African coast<br>

<br>

Molasses to rum to slaves<br>

'Tisn't morals, 'tis money that saves<br>

Shall we dance to the sound of the profitable pound<br>

In molasses and rum and slaves<br>

<br>

Who sails the ships out of Guinea<br>

Ladened with bibles and slaves?<br>

'Tis Boston can coast to the West Indies coast<br>

Jamaica, we brung what ye craves<br>

Antigua, Barbados, we brung bibles and slaves!<br>

<br>

Molasses to rum to slaves<br>

Who sail the ships back to Boston<br>

Ladened with gold, see it gleam<br>

Whose fortunes are made in the triangle trade<br>

Hail slavery, the New England dream!<br>

Mr. Adams, I give you a toast:<br>

Hail Boston! Hail Charleston!<br>

Who stinketh the most?<br>

<br>
