My Shot x Six of Crows

(So, I spent way too long rewriting all of My Shot (from Hamilton) to fit the beginning of Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo…. )

[KAZ]

I am not throwing away my shot!

I am not throwing away my shot!

Hey yo, I’m not like my country

I’m young, clever, but hungry

And I’m not throwing away my shot!

I don’t need a scholarship to King’s College

I don’t even brag, ‘cause dag, I amaze and astonish

There’s no problem cause I got a lot of brains, my plan’s polished

I don’t need to holler, they call me ‘bastard’, but

With every word, I drop knowledge!

I’m a diamond in the rough, a shiny piece of coal

Tryin’ to reach my goal. The power of my thieves? Unimpeachable

Only seventeen but my mind is older

These Ketterdam streets get colder, I shoulder

Ev’ry burden, ev’ry disadvantage

I have learned to manage, I’ve got my cane to brandish

My en’mies walk these streets famished

My plan will not be just a spark but a flame

But damn, it’s getting dark, so let me spell out the name

I am the—

[KAZ/JESPER/NINA/INEJ]

B-A-S-T-A-R-D

Inej, you and I are meant to be

[KAZ]

Thieves that pull a heist independently

Meanwhile, Rollins keeps shittin’ on us endlessly

Essentially, we hunt Yul-Bayur relentlessly

Then we’ve got six million kruge for a spending spree

I ain’t never gonna let Pekka Rollins go free

So there will be a revolution in this century

Enter me!

[JESPER/NINA/INEJ]

(He says in parentheses)

[KAZ]

Don’t be shocked when your priest curses me

I’m not holy, but I’ll set us free

Eventually, you’ll see my ascendancy

[KAZ]

And I am not throwing away

My shot

I am not throwing away

My shot

Hey yo, I’m not like my country

I’m young, clever, but hungry

And I’m not throwing away my shot

[INEJ]

My shot!

My shot!

And I’m not throwing away my shot.

[KAZ/NINA/INEJ/JESPER]

I am not throwing away my shot

I am not throwing away my shot

Hey yo, I’m not like my country

I’m young, clever, but hungry

And I’m not throwing away my shot

It’s time to take a shot!

[JESPER]

I dream of life with Wylan next to me

I’ll use my grisha powers and live properly,

Properly? I’m only happy when I’ve got a deck in front of me

But when I shoot, I make the other side panicky

With my—

[KAZ/NINA/INEJ/JESPER]

Shot!

[NINA]

Yo, I’m a grisha heartrender

One glimpse of my powers and I know you’ll surrender

I’m joining Kaz’s gang cuz I know it’s my chance

To actually advance, (NINA slides up to MATTHIAS) find some romance…

[MATTHIAS]

Nina! I’m gonna get—

[KAZ/NINA/INEJ/JESPER]

Shot!

[INEJ]

But we’ll never be truly free

Until the pleasure workers have the same rights as you and me

You and I. Do or die. Wait till you see me afloat

On my boat, slittin’ every last slaver’s throat!

Have another—

[KAZ/NINA/INEJ/JESPER]

Shot!

[MATTHIAS]

Tig! Drusjes, lower your voices

You keep out of trouble and you double your choices

I wish I wasn’t with you, the situation is fraught

You’ve got to be carefully taught:

If you talk, you’re gonna get shot!

[KAZ]

Matthias, check what we got

Jesper Fahey, can kill with one gunshot

I think your powers are hot

Inej… I like you a lot

Let’s hatch a plot blacker than the kettle callin’ the pot…

What are the odds the gods would put us all in one spot

Poppin’ a squat on conventional wisdom, like it or not

A bunch of Ravkan, Fjerdan, Suli, Kerch, Zemeni on a mission

Give me a position, show me where the ammunition is!

Oh, am I talking too loud?

Look up at the sky, our future’s a stormcloud

I never had a bigger mission before

Jordie, I promise I’ll make you proud!

[JESPER]

Let’s get this plan in front of a crowd!

[KAZ/NINA/INEJ/JESPER/MATTHIAS/ENSEMBLE]

I am not throwing away my shot

I am not throwing away my shot

Hey yo, I’m not like my country

I’m young, clever, but hungry

And I’m not throwing away my shot

I am not throwing away my shot

I am not throwing away my shot

Hey yo, I’m not like my country

I’m young, clever, but hungry

And I’m not throwing away my shot

[INEJ]

Ev’rybody sing:

Whoa, whoa, whoa

Hey!

Whoa!

Woah!!

Whoa!

Ay, let ‘em hear ya!

Let’s go!

I said shout it to the rooftops!

Said, to the rooftops!

Come on!

Come on, let’s go!

[KAZ/NINA/JESPER]

Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!

Whoa!

Whoa!

Yea!

[COMPANY]

Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!

Whoa!

Whoa!

Yea!

[INEJ]

Rise up!

When you’re living on your knees, you rise up

Tell your brother that he’s gotta rise up

Tell your sister that she’s gotta rise up

[INEJ AND ENSEMBLE]

When is this damned city gonna rise up?

When is this damned city gonna rise up?

When is this damned city gonna rise up?

When is this damned city gonna rise up?

Rise up!

[COMPANY]

Whoa! Whoa!

Whoa!

Whoa!

Whoa!

Rise up!

[KAZ]

I remember death so much, it’s a recurring memory

When’s it gonna get me?

In my sleep? Seven feet ahead of me?

If I see it comin’, do I run or do I let it be?

Is it like a beat without a melody?

See, I never thought I’d live past nine

My brother’s short life was longer than mine

Ask all of us why we livin’ fast and we’d laugh, reach for a flask,

We have to make this moment last, that’s plenty

Scratch that

This is not a moment, it’s a movement

Where all the hungriest fighters with

Something to prove went.

Our foes oppose us, we’ll grab our guns and stand

We’ll find Bo Yul-Bayur, then get back to Ketterdam

But, if I get my vengeance?

How do we know we won’t all be sentenced?

Will the blood we shed begin an endless

Cycle of menace and death with no defendants?

I know the action in the street is excitin’

But Saints, between all the bleedin’ ‘n fightin’

I’ve been plottin’ ‘n writin’

We can change our financial situation

I don’t care about damnation, about devastation,

I’m past patiently waitin’. I’m passionately

Smashin’ every expectation

Every action’s an act of creation!

I’m laughin’ in the face of casualties and sorrow

For the first time, I’m thinkin’ past tomorrow

[KAZ AND COMPANY]

And I am not throwing away my shot

I am not throwing away my shot

Hey yo, I’m not like my country

I’m young, clever, but hungry

And I’m not throwing away my shot

[KAZ/NINA/INEJ/JESPER]

We’re gonna rise up! Time to take a shot!

We’re gonna rise up! Time to take a shot!

We’re gonna

[KAZ]

Time to take a shot!

[KAZ/NINA/INEJ/JESPER]

Time to take a shot!

Time to take a shot!

Take a shot!

Shot!

Shot!

A-yo it’s

Time to take a shot!

Time to take a shot!

And I am—

[ENSEMBLE]

Not throwing away my shot

Not throwing away my shot

We’re gonna

Rise up!

Rise up!

Rise up!

Rise up!

Rise up!

Rise up!

Ri— ri— ri—

Time to take a shot!

Time to take a shot!

And I am—

[KAZ/NINA/INEJ/JESPER]

Not throwin’ away my—

Not throwin’ away my shot!
