Phillipa Soo, Christopher Jackson, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Anthony Ramos attend Lin-Manuel Miranda's final performance of "Hamilton" on Broadway at Richard Rodgers Theatre on July 9, 2016 in New York City.

The ongoing mask debate across the United States has gotten the Hamilton treatment just in time for the musical's Disney+ premiere this weekend.

A YouTube parody brings the coronavirus pandemic pro-mask and anti-mask sides head to head, with lyrics themed the soundtrack of Hamilton.

The clip, uploaded by the Holderness Family, gets straight to the topic as it opens with a call-and-response to the tune of "Aaron Burr, Sir":

"Pardon me, do you have germs, sir?"

"No, I don't -- and that's my business, not yours, sir. I have my rights and have my freedom."

"To be sure, sir..."

"But this corona is a sham."

"I'm getting nervous, sir."

The humorous song goes on to address everything from the very serious reality of the virus to conspiracy theories -- and both sides even agree, if just for a moment, about how rough being in quarantine with kids can be -- before transitioning to the next Hamilton-inspired tunes about why everyone should "just agree wear a tiny flipping mask."
