Sit Down John

Thanks to illuminaut for recommending that I see the musical, 1776. The opening song is... well... I like it:

Sit Down John

Congress:
Sit down, John! Sit down, John!
For God's sake, John, sit down!
Sit down, John! Sit down, John!
For God's sake, John, sit down!

Someone oughta open up a window!

It's ninety degrees! Have mercy, John, please
It's hot as hell in Philadephia!

Someone oughta open up a window!

Adams:
I say vote yes! Vote yes! Vote for independency!

Congress:
Someone oughta open up a window!

Adams:
I say vote yes!

Congress:
Sit down, John!

Adams:
Vote for independency!

Congress:
Someone oughta open up a window!
No, no, no! Too many flies! Too many flies!
But it's hot as hell in Philadelphia!
Someone oughta open up a window!
Can't we compromise here?

Adams:
Vote yes!

Congress:
No, too many flies here!

Adams:
Vote yes!

Congress:
Oh for God's sake, John, sit down!

Adams:
Oh, good God! Consider yourself lucky that you have John Adams to abuse,
for no sane man would tolerate it!

Congress:
John, you're a bore; we've heard this before
Now for God's sake, John, sit down!

Adams:
I say vote yes!

Congress:
No!

Adams:
Vote yes!

Congress:
No!

Adams:
Vote for independency!

Congress:
Someone oughta open up a window!

Adams:
I say vote yes!

Congress:
Sit down, John!

Congress:
Vote for independency!

Congress:
Will someone shut that man up?

Adams:
Never!
