Benny's Dispatch lyrics
[Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mandy Gonzalez, Christopher Jackson]
Check one two three... Check one two three...
This is Benny on the dispatch. Yo!
Atención, yo, attention!
It’s Benny, and I’d like to mention
I’m on the microphone this mornin’
Honk ya horn if you want it!
Okay, we got traffic on the west side
Get off at 79th, and take the left side
Of Riverside Drive, and ya might slide
West End’s ya best friend if you catch the lights
And don’t take the Deegan;
Manny Ramirez is in town this weekend
Sorry Dominicans, take Route Eighty-seven
You ain’t getting back in again
Hold up a minute
Nina, you’re home today!
...Of your folks, they’re on their way!
It’s good to see your face—
Hold up a minute, wait!
You used to run this dispatch, right?
Once or twice—
Well check the technique! Yo!
There’s a traffic accident I have to mention
At the intersection of 10th Ave and the Jacob Javitz Convention Center
And check it, don’t get stuck in the rubber-neckin’
On a Hundred-Ninety-Second, there’s a double-decker bus wreck!
Now listen up, we got a special guest!
Live and direct from a year out west!
Welcome her back, 'cause she looks mad stressed!
Nina Rosario, the barrio’s best!
Honk your horns…
She’s smiling… say hello!
I better find my folks
Thanks for the welcome wagon
Anytime. Anytime, Nina
Wait here with me
It’s getting hot outside, turn up the A.C
Stay here with me.
