Scotsman, dropped in the middle of a forgotten
Spot in the Caribbean by providence, impoverished, in squalor
Grow up to be a hero and a scholar?" America sang as he starred out into the horizon.
"The ten-dollar Founding monther without a father
Got a lot farther by working a lot harder
By being a lot smarter
By being a self-starter
By fourteen, they placed her in charge of a trading charter." Egypt sang as he stood by America.
"And every day while slaves were being slaughtered and carted
Away across the waves, she struggled and kept her guard up
Inside, she was longing for something to be a part of
The sister was ready to beg, steal, borrow, or barter" 2p France said as he walked over to stand by egypt.
"Then a hurricane came, and devastation reigned
Our women saw her future drip, dripping down the drain
Put a pencil to her temple, connected it to her brain
And she wrote her first refrain, a testament to her pain" japan sang.
"Well, the word got around, they said, “This kid is insane, man”
Took up a collection just to send her to the mainland
“Get your education, don’t forget from whence you came, and
The world's gonna know your name. What’s your name, gril?” America asked.
My name is Y/N L/N
And there's a million things I haven't done
But just you wait, just you wait..." Y/n sang.
"When she was ten her father split, full of it, debt-ridden
Two years later, see Y/n and her mother bed-ridden
Half-dead sittin' in their own sick, the scent thick" Germany sang.
"And Y/n got better but her mother went quick" everyone sang in a quiet voice.
"Moved in with a cousin, the cousin committed suicide
Left her with nothin' but ruined pride, something new inside
A voice saying
“Y/n, you gotta fend for yourself.”
She started retreatin' and readin' every treatise on the shelf" russia sang.
"There would have been nothin’ left to do
For someone less astute
She woulda been dead or destitute
Without a cent of restitution
Started workin', clerkin' for her late mother's landlord
Tradin’ sugar cane and rum and all the things she can’t afford
Scammin' for every book she can get her hands on
Plannin' for the future see her now as she stands on (ooh)
The bow of a ship headed for a new land
In New York you can be a new women" america yelled.
"In New York you can be a new women (Just you wait)
In New York you can be a new women (Just you wait)
In New York you can be a new women
In New York, New York
Just you wait!" Everyone sang.
"Y/n L/n (Y/n L/n)
We are waiting in the wings for you (waiting in the wings for you)
You could never back down
You never learned to take your time!
Oh, Y/n L/n (Y/N L/n)
When the world sings for you
Will they know what you overcame?
Will they know you rewrote the game?
The world will never be the same, oh" everyone sang"
"The ship is in the harbor now
See if you can spot her
Just you wait
Comin’ up from the bottom
Just you wait
Her enemies destroyed her rep
The world forgot her" america sang.
"We fought with her" 2p Japan and France said.
"Me? I died for her" egypt said.
"Me? I trusted her" russia said.

But just you wait!" Everyone sang"
"What's your name, girl?" America asked.
"Y/n L/n" everyone yelled.
