Champagne lyrics

[Lin-Manuel Miranda, Karen Olivo]

[VANESSA]
So I got you a present
I went downtown to get it
Doing anything tonight?

[USNAVI]
Cleaning

[VANESSA]
Done for the day

[USNAVI]
No way

[VANESSA]
‘Cuz we got a date

[USNAVI]
Okay—

[VANESSA]
Before you board that plane
I owe you a bottle of cold champagne

[USNAVI]
No…

[VANESSA]
Yeah, cold champagne

[USNAVI]
Damn, the bottle’s all sweaty and everything
You went and got this—

[VANESSA]
Pop the champagne

[USNAVI]
I don’t know if we have coffee cups
Or plastic cups, I think Sonny has the cups—

[VANESSA]
Tonight we’re drinking straight from the bottle. Usnavi?

[USNAVI]
Yeah?

[VANESSA]
Daniela told me what you did for me
And it’s honestly the sweetest thing anyone ever did for me
Now, what can I say or do to possibly repay you for your kindness?

[USNAVI]
How do you get this gold shit off?

[VANESSA]
Usnavi!

[USNAVI]
Yeah!

[VANESSA]
Before we both leave town!
Before the corner changes and the signs are taken down
Let’s walk around the neighborhood and say our goodbyes
Usnavi, are you alright?

[USNAVI]
I’m fine, I’m tryn’a open this champagne
See the twisty thing is broken
But I’m gonna open this damn champagne!

[VANESSA]
Lemme see it

[USNAVI]
No, I got it!

[VANESSA]
Yo, Usnavi, drop the champagne!

[USNAVI]
I mean you went to all this trouble to get us a little bubbly—

[VANESSA]
And it’s gonna be okay

[USNAVI]
I’m sorry, it’s been a long day

[VANESSA]
You oughta stay

[USNAVI]
What?

[VANESSA]
You can use that money to fix this place

[USNAVI]
Ha ha, very funny

[VANESSA]
And it’s not like Sonny’s got role models—

[USNAVI]
Role models?

[VANESSA]
Stepping up to the plate—

[USNAVI]
Yo, what are you talking about?

[VANESSA]
I’m just saying, I think your vacation can wait—

[USNAVI]
Vacation? Vanessa, you’re leaving too—

[VANESSA]
I’m going down to West Fourth Street; you can take the A—

[USNAVI]
What are you trying to say?

[VANESSA]
You’re leaving the country, and we’re never gonna see you again—

[USNAVI]
What are you trying to say?

[VANESSA]
You get everyone addicted to your coffee then off you go

[USNAVI]
Vanessa, I don’t know why you’re mad at me

[VANESSA]
I wish I was mad—

I’m just too late.
