Scene 8: North Point, September 12, 1814

DANIEL WELLS AND HENRY MCCOMAS:

Concealed in the trees as the British advance toward the city, teenage snipers Daniel Wells and Henry McComas aim their rifles at the tallest target – an officer on a white horse.

Type-A squirrel gun killer
Cause we're bored
And it's something to do
Just wanna shot
Wanna open up
Dismount some English hot shot

Kill the general, kill the general
Gonna stand 'til we're beat'n the English back
Give the general one hell of a send off
Gonna fire and fire 'til they're all dispatched


Sure beats tanning leather
Beats work
Fresh air so good for you
I like mine tinged with smoke
Hellfire Dragoon

Kill the general, kill the general
Gonna stand 'til we're beat'n the English back
Give the general one hell of a send off
Gonna fire and fire 'til they're all dispatched

This is my family's land
Won't bow to your hand
My rifle ... your sword
Amen
Goodbye Lord goodbye Lord goodbye Lord

Kill the general, kill the general
Gonna stand 'til we're beat'n the English back
Give the general one hell of a send off
a Gonna fire and fire 'til they're all dispatched

Kill the general, kill the general
Gonna stand 'til we're beat'n the English back
Wanna give the general one hell of a send off
Gonna fire and fire 'til they're all dispatched
