[West Side Story – “America”]
[Verse 1: Jimmy Fallon & Andrew Rannells]
2020, oh, what a journey
How has one year felt like thirty?
January in America
Trump is impeached in America
More primaries in America
Near World War III in America
Trump's in the clear in America
Harry comes here to America
It's a new year in America
Nothing to fear in America

[Little Shop of Horrors – “Suddenly Seymour”]
[Verse 2: Jimmy Fallon, Andrew Rannells & Both]
I've got these plans like my third cousin's wedding
Running a 5K, drinking less booze
Seeing a concert, shopping for bedding
Family reunion on a Disney cruise
Then suddenly COVID...

[The Sound of Music – “16 Going on 17”]
[Verse 3: Jimmy Fallon & Andrew Rannells]
It's day sixteen, going on seventeen
Hеre in my quarantine
Staying at home and fixing dad's iPhonе
Where is my pal Jim Bean?
It's day seventeen, going on eighteen
Just kicking back alone
On top I'm dressed, waist-down I'm a mess
I'm ready to work from home

[The Book of Mormon – “Hello”]
[Verse 4: Jimmy Fallon, Andrew Rannells, Questlove & Black Thought]
Hello, my name is Matt from work
And I would like to join you on this strange new thing called Zoom
Hello, my name is Zack from work
And please don't mind that I am in my childhood bedroom
Hello, my name is Ron from work
And please enjoy my background that looks like I'm on the moon (Wow, Ah)
Hello, my name is—
Hey dude, your audio is off
I think there's a problem
Hey
Sound
Your audio's off
Whoops, I was on mute
Hello
Hello?
Hello?
Hello
Hello
Hello?
Hello!

[Wicked – “Defying Gravity”]
[Verse 5: Jimmy Fallon, Andrew Rannells & Both]
Something has changed within me
Something is not the same
I'm sick of catching moths
On my Animal Crossing Game
I'm carving my own puzzles
Out-dancing my TikTok feed
And next week, I have big plans
To make my own cheese
I think that I'm losing my sanity
It's clear that I'm losing my sanity
I gotta leave this house

A Chorus Line – “One”
[Verse 6: Jimmy Fallon, Andrew Rannells & Both]
One walk for recreation
Gotta get out of my seat
One neighbor walking toward me
I'd better cross the street
One cough and suddenly people all stare at me
I swear it's just a tickle, it's allergies

[Cats – “Memory”]
[Verse 7: Jimmy Fallon & Andrew Rannells]
Memory, drinking lattes at Starbucks
Sitting crammed into tables, nowhere to put my arms
I remember the crowded hipster bar across the street
Grinding to Lizzo 'til I barfed

[Spoken Interlude: Jimmy Fallon & Andrew Rannells]
Alright, well I'm off to a birthday thing. Just me and ten friends. You wanna come with?
What?
Andrew? You okay, bud?

[Dreamgirls - “And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going”]
[Verse 8: Andrew Rannells]
And I am telling you I'm not going
You're a fun guy, I can't deny
But I will not hang out inside
No, no, no, no way
No, no, no, no way I—

[Spoken Interlude: Jimmy Fallon & Andrew Rannells]
Andrew, Andrew, Andrew, it's, uh, an outdoor party. We're just gonna go to a park or something
Oh, that sounds fun
Yeah, let's go. Okay, cool... What's going on?
What day is it?
November 3rd

[Fiddler on the Roof – “Tradition”]
[Verse 9: Jimmy Fallon & Andrew Rannells]
Election! Election!
Election

[Spoken Interlude]
The AP has called the race for Joe Biden, but President Trump says the election is far from over

[Hairspray – “You Can’t Stop the Beat”]
[Verse 10: Jimmy Fallon, Andrew Rannels & Both]
You can't throw a hissy fit
And say this ain't the end
But the only thing that's running now
Is the hair dye on your friend
'Cause we've all seen Steve Kornacki's board
And it says you're not president
You can't stop the count
You can't stop the count

West Side Story – “Maria”
[Verse 11: Andrew Rannells]
Moderna
They just made a shot from Moderna

[Hamilton – “My Shot”]
[Verse 12: Jimmy Fallon & Andrew Rannells]
I am not throwin' away my shot
No, I am not throwing away my shot
Heyo, I trust Dr. Fauci
It's just a little ouchie
And I'm not throwing away my shot

[The Book of Mormon – “I Believe”]
[Verse 13: Andrew Rannells & Both]
When 2020 started, it was supposed to be my year
So what happened?
Took a shower once a month while trembling with fear
God, what happened?
A virus that infects the entire world
What's so scary about that
I must trust that next year will be easier
And that we'll have each others' backs
And I'll finally get to go out
And I'll let the whole world see my mouth
I believe
That next year will be better for all of us
I believe
That come next spring, we'll get to hug our parents
And I believe
That we should listen to science
And not believe drinking bleach is an actual medical cure
2021 will be our year
I believe
