Song of the Week: Sit Down, John

Since this is the week of July 4th, this week's song is from the musical 1776.  I had a hard time deciding between the first two songs of the musical, so here's both.  The first one has John Adams laying out the case for Independence before the Continental Congress. The second takes place immediately after Adams leaves Independence Hall and features him venting his frustrations with Congress.

"I have come to the conclusion that one useless man is a disgrace, that two are called a law firm, and that three or more become a Congress."

"They can't agree on what is right and wrong or what is good or bad. I'm convinced the only purpose that this Congress ever had was to gather specifically to drive John Adams mad!"
