Up to Us: NYU What You Own

A clip of NYU Tisch students Kris Opperman, Jacob Voigt, Jeremy Stewart, Anthony Suggs, James Litvak, Christine Ferry, Maddie Dix, and Dana Majeski singing the Up to Us: NYU version of "What You Own" from the musical Rent. 

The full clip is longer, but due to filming issues on all 3 of our cameras, we cut the clip to half its length. You can read the full lyrics below though! 

Lyrics

Don't spend too much, don't tax all day

They have a lot, They're just laz-ay

That drip of cash, that pint of lame

Goes away, just play the game

You're living in America

Where every fight is very partisan

You're living in America

We can't agree on anything

And when you're living in America

In the midst of a recession

Nothing gets done

The democrat cannot see

And the republican cannot hear

Yet all we want is compromise

Constituents shed a tear

Just tighten the budget

Do something, anything, now!

Just please agree or we will drown

You're living in America

Where every fight is partisan

You're living in America

Underneath that growing mound…

And when you're living in America

In the midst of a recession

Nothing gets done.
