Sherman Edwards - Sit Down, John lyrics

(By God, I have had this Congress. For ten years, King George and his Parliament have gulled, cullied, and diddled these colonies. And still this Congress refuses to grant any of my proposals on independence, even so much as the courtesy of open debate! Good God, what in hell are they waiting for?)

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 ought to open up a window!)

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

(Someone ought to open up a window!)

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

(Someone ought to open up a window!)

I say vote yes!
(Sit down, John!)
Vote for independency!

(Someone ought to open up a window!)
No! No! No!
Too many flies
Too many flies
But it's hot as hell in Philadelphia

Are you going to open up a window?
(Can't we compromise here?)

Vote yes!
(No, too many flies here!)

Vote yes!
(Oh for God's sake, John, sit down!)

(Good God! Consider yourselves fortunate that you have John Adams to abuse, for no sane man would tolerate it!)

John, you're a bore
We've heard this before
Now, for God's sake, John
Sit down!

I say vote yes!
(No!)
Vote yes!)
(No!)
Vote for independency!

(Someone ought to open up a window!)

I say vote yes!
(Sit down, John!)
Vote for independency!

(Will someone shut that man up?)
(Never! Never!)
