lyrics

Ashburton:
Ah, Mister Webster!
A pleasure to meet you.
Lord Ashburton, at your service sir.
Webster:
The pleasure is mine, and thank you for meeting on such short notice. And before we get underway
Let me take the time to say...
Any treaty you negotiate
I can negotiate better
Ashburton:
I can negotiate any treaty
Better than you
Webster:
No you can’t
Ashburton:
Yes I can
Webster: No you can’t
Ashburton:
Yes I can
Yes I can!
Webster:
Any politics you can do
I can do better
Ashburton:
I can do any business
better than you
Webster:
No you can’t
Ashburton:
Yes I can
Webster:
No you can’t
Ashburton:
Yes I can
Yes I can!
Webster:
I say Maine gets more land!
Ashburton:
I say New Brunswick gets more land!
Webster:
I say no!
Ashburton:
I say Yes!
Webster:
No!
Ashburton:
Yes!
Webster:
Any speech you can give
I can give better
Ashburton:
I can write any dictionary
Better than you
<<music stops>>
Webster:
I’m not that Webster!
Ashburton:
Really?
Webster:
Yes, why does everybody...nevermind.
Where were we?

<<music resumes>>
Webster:
Any compromise you can make, I can make better
Ashburton:
I can make any compromise
Better than you
Webster:
No you can’t
Ashburton:
Yes I can
Webster:
No!
Ashburton:
Yes!
Webster:
Prove it!
Ashburton:
I will!
