It was performed by Jonathan Groff as King George III.
George Washington's yielding his power and stepping away
Is that true?
I wasn't aware that was something a person could do
Are they going to keep on replacing whoever's in charge?
If so, who's next?
There's nobody else in their country who looms quite as large
I know him
That can't be
That's that little guy who spoke to me
All those years ago
What was it, eighty-five?
That poor man, they're gonna eat him alive!
Next to Washington, they all look small
Watch them run
They will tear each other into pieces
Jesus Christ, this will be fun!
Da da da dat da dat da da da dai ya da
Da da da dat dat dai ya da, hahahahaha!
[President John Adams]
