LYRIC

[ad_1]

Aaron Burr: How does a bastard,
Orphan,
Son of a whore,
And a Scotsman,
Dropped in the middle of a forgotten spot in the Caribbean,
By providence,
Inpoverished in squalor,
Grow up to be a hero and a scholar?
John Laurens: The ten dollar,
Founding father without a father,
Got a lot farther by working a lot harder,
By being a lot smarter,
By being a self starter,
By fourteen, they placed him in charge of the trading charter.
Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson: And everyday while slave were being slaughtered,
And carted away,
Across the waves, he struggled and kept his guard up,
Inside he was longing for something to be apart of the brother was ready to beg,
Steal,
Borrow,
Or barter.
Hercules Mulligan/James Madison(I’m not sure tbh): Then a hurricane came and devistation rained,
Our man saw his future drip,
Dripping down the drain.
Put a pencil to his temple,
Connected it to his brain,
And he wrote his first refrain,
A testament to his pain!
Aaron Burr: And the word got around,
They said “This kid is insane man”
Took up a collection just to send him to the main land.
“Get your education, don’t forget from whence you came, and the world’s gonna know your name”
What’s your name man?
Alexander Hamilton: Alexander Hamilton
My name is Alexander Hamilton
And there’s a million things I haven’t done.
But just you wait, just you wait.
Eliza Schuyler/Hamilton: When he was ten his father split,
Full of it debt ridden.
Two years later see Alex and his mother bed ridden,
Half dead,
Sitting in there own sick,
The scent thick.
Company: Alex got better but his mother went quick.
George Washington: Moved in with a cousin,
The cousin committed suicide.
Left him with nothing but ruined pride,
Something new inside,
A voice saying
“Alex you gotta fend for yourself”
He started retreating and reading every treatise on the shelf.
Aaron Burr: There would’ve been nothing left to do for someone less astute.
He would’ve been dead or destitute, without a cent of restitution
He started working, clerking for his late mother’s landlord.
Trading sugar cane, and rum, and all the things he can’t afford.
Scamming for every book he could get his hands on.
Planning for the future see him now as he stands on the bow of a ship headed for a new land.
In New York you can be a new man!
Company: In New York you can be a new man! (Just you wait)
In New York you can be a new man! (Just you wait)
In New York you can be a new man!
In New York (New York!)
Just you wait!~
Alexander Hamilton! (Alexander Hamilton)
We are waiting in the wings for you! (Waitin in the wings for you!)
You could never back down, you never learned to take your,
T I M E~
Oh~
Alexander Hamilton (Alexander Hamilton)
When America sings for you!
Will they know what you overcame?
Will they know you rewrote the game?~
The world.
Will never,
Be,
The,
Same~
Oh~
Aaron Burr: The ship is in the harbor now,
See if you can spot him (Just you wait)
Another immigrant coming up from the bottom (Just you wait)
His enemies destroyed his rep,
America forgot him!
Lafayette and Mulligan: We fought with him!
Laurens: Me, I died for him!
Washington: Me, I trusted him!
Schuyler Sisters: Me I loved him!
Aaron Burr: And me….
I’m the damn fool that shot him. (shot him shot him shot him!!)
Company: There’s a million things I haven’t done!
But just you wait!~~
Aaron Burr: What’s your name man?
All with Alex: Alexander Hamilton!!!
