LyricsEdit

[GUNSHOT]

[BURR]
I strike him right between his ribs
I walk towards him, but I am ushered away
They row him back across the Hudson
I get a drink

[COMPANY]
Oooh
Oooh
Oooh

[BURR]
I hear wailing in the streets

[COMPANY]
Oooh
Oooh
Oooh

[BURR]
Somebody tells me, "You better hide"

[COMPANY]
Oooh
Oooh
Oooh

[BURR]
They say

[BURR/ANGELICA]
Angelica and Eliza—

[BURR]
Were both at his side when he died
Death doesn't discriminate
Between the sinners and the saints,
It takes and it takes and it takes
History obliterates
In every picture it paints
It paints me and all my mistakes
When Alexander aimed at the sky,
He may have been the first one to die,
But I'm the one who paid for it

I survived, but I paid for it.

Now I'm the villain in your history
I was too young and blind to see
I should've known
I should've known
The world was wide enough for both Hamilton and me
The world was wide enough for both Hamilton and me

TriviaEdit

  • This version removes the parallelism from Ten Duel Commandments and skips straight to the death of Alexander Hamilton.
