Jefferson:
Come on and put your name on the dotted line
Franklin:
I gotta be particular what I sign
Jefferson:
It's just a piece of paper
Franklin:
Just a piece of paper, that's what you say
Jefferson:
Come on and put your signature on the list
Franklin:
It looks to have a subversive twist
Jefferson:
How silly to assume it
Won't you nom de plume it today?
You're so skittish
Who possibly could care if you do?
Franklin:
The Un-British Activities Committee, that's who
Jefferson:
Let's have a little drink-o and fill the quill
Franklin:
It sounds a little pinko to me, but still
Jefferson:
Knock off the timid manner
If you want a banner to raise
Both:
Banner to raise
Jefferson:
You must take
Franklin:
I must take
Jefferson:
A Stand
Franklin:
A stand
Jefferson:
For this brave
Franklin:
For this brave
Jefferson:
New land
Franklin:
New land
Jefferson:
For who wants
Franklin:
Who wants
Jefferson:
To live
Franklin:
To live
Jefferson:
So conser-
Franklin:
So Conser-
Jefferson:
Vative?
Franklin:
Vative?
Franklin:
I don't dis-
Jefferson:
He don't dis-
Franklin:
Agree,
Jefferson:
Agree,
Both:
But a man can't be
Too careful what he signs these days
