LyricsEdit

[PHILIP]
Look! Grandpa's in the paper!
"War hero Philip Schuyler in danger of
losing senate seat to young upstart Aaron Burr"
Grandpa might lose his seat in the senate

[ELIZA]
I thought he was unopposed?

[PHILIP]
Not according to the paper he isn't!

[ELIZA]
Go make sure the door is closed

[PHILIP/ELIZA]
Further down
See Schuyler has a challenger from New York, New York
For senator
Burr!

[ELIZA]
I gotta go I gotta find Alexander

[PHILIP]
Let him know we're on his side

[ELIZA]
No! He’ll consider this a personal slander
I’ve gotta stop a homicide!

[PHILIP]
Oh!

[PHILIP/ELIZA]
Look around, we should look around
Let’s go and find your father down in New York, New York

[HAMILTON]
Burr!
Since when are you a Democratic-Republican?

[BURR]
Since being one put me on the up and up again, hah

[HAMILTON]
No one knows who you are
Or what you do

[BURR]
They don't need to know me
They don't like you

[HAMILTON]
Excuse me?

[BURR]
Oh, Wall Street thinks you're great
You'll always be adored by the things you create
But upstate you’re the rascal who trades away the capitale—

[HAMILTON]
Wait

[BURR]
—The asshole who taxes the a-a-alcohol!

[HAMILTON]
I've always considered you a friend

[BURR]
I don't see why that has to end
A senate seat was up for grabs and I took it
It’s not my fault people think you’re crooked

[HAMILTON]
You’re gonna make a fool of me through my father in law?

[BURR]
There’s the kid who almost shot Charles Lee in the jaw
My god, your pride will be the death of us all
Beware, it goeth before the fall!

[ELIZA]
Alexander, there you are

[HAMILTON]
Eliza?

[ELIZA]
You forgot your papers
Mister Burr, good sir, it’s been so long
How are the Theodosias?

[BURR]
As a matter of fact, my wife has taken ill

[ELIZA]
I’m not surprised, what with the chill
You’ll send her our regards

[BURR]
I will

[ELIZA]
And how’s your daughter?

[BURR]
She’s my pride and joy
Fluent in French- and Latin!

[PHILIP]
So am I!

[BURR]
She’s the same age as your boy

[HAMILTON]
Yeah, one day he’ll run Manhattan

[ELIZA]
We must be going, Burr
But send your girls our love

[BURR]
Nice to meet your son

[HAMILTON]
We’re not done, mister Burr, sir

[ELIZA]
Hon

[BURR]
If I were you I’d stick with her, sir
