Here’s a serious question no one’s asking: Is there anything Lin-Manuel Miranda can’t do? Because Vulture just let us know that he performed a version of “Ten Duel Commandments” with lyrics about Hillary Clinton at a Hillary Clinton fundraiser, and, woah.
Accompanied by fellow Hamilton co-star Renee Elise Goldsberry, Miranda debuts some inspired lyrics that name the ten things every American needs to do in the weeks leading up to election day.
They even manage to sneak in some rhymes, like “Watch Hillary examine the terrain, watch her campaign with the man Tim Kaine. Tim Kaine in the membrane / Tim Kaine in the brain!”
Okay, we know you’re dying to see the lyrics so that you can perform this rap yourself.
If this isn’t motivation to vote, we don’t know what is.
They’re right, things are down to the wire. Time is running out.
As always, Manuel’s signature humor was injected generously into his performance, and we’re feeling more inspired than ever to get out there, make our voices heard, and make a difference. This rap will probably be in your head as you walk into the polling place, and hey, there’s nothing wrong with that! In fact, it’s the power mantra we’ve been waiting for.
Thanks Lin-Manuel Miranda, we can always count on you for super catchy — and informative — entertainment.
