Raise a glass to freedom
Something they can never take away
No matter what they tell you
Raise a glass to the four of us.

[Hamilton]
I imagine death so much
It feels more like a memory
When's it's gonna get me?
In my sleep? Seven feet ahead of me?
If I see it coming,
Do I run or do I let it be?
Is it like a beat without a melody?

See, I never thought I'd live past twenty
Where I come from some get half as many
Ask anybody why we livin' fast and we laugh,
Reach for a flask
We have to make this moment last,
That's plenty

Scratch that
This is not a moment, it's the movement
Where all the hungriest brothers with something to prove went
Foes oppose us, we take an honest stand
We roll like Moses, claimin' our Promised Land
And if we win our independence?
'Zat a guarantee of freedom for our descendants?
Or will the blood we shed begin an endless
Cycle of vengeance and death with no defendants?

I know the action in the street is excitin'
But Jesus, between all the bleedin' 'n fightin'
I've been readin' 'n writin'
We need to handle our financial situation
Are we a nation of states? What's the state of our nation?
I'm past patiently waitin'
I'm passionately smashin' every expectation
Every action's an act of creation
I'm laughin' in the face of casualties and sorrow
For the first time, I'm thinkin' past tomorrow

[King George]
You say our love is draining
And you can’t go on
You’ll be the one complaining when I am gone...
And no, don’t change the subject
Cuz you’re my favorite subject
My sweet, submissive subject
My loyal, royal subject
Forever and ever and ever and ever and ever…

You’ll be back
Like before
I will fight the fight and win the war
For your love
For your praise
And I’ll love you till my dying days
When you’re gone
I’ll go mad
So don’t throw away this thing we had
Cuz when push comes to shove
I will kill your friends and family
To remind you of my love.

[Hamilton] I may not live to see our glory!

[Lafayette/Mulligan/Laurens] I may not live to see our glory!

[Lafayette/Mulligan/Laurens] But I will gladly join the fight!

[Hamilton] And when our children tell our story…

[Lafayette/Mulligan/Laurens] And when our children tell our story…

[Seabury]
Hear ye, hear ye! My name is Samuel Seabury
And I present “Free Thoughts on the
Proceedings of the Continental Congress!”
Heed not the rabble
Who scream revolution
They have not your interests at heart.

[Mulligan]
Oh my God. Tear this dude apart.

[Seabury]
Chaos and bloodshed are not a solution
Don’t let them lead you astray
This Congress does not speak for me.

[Burr]
Let him be.

[Seabury]
They’re playing a dangerous game
I pray the king shows you his mercy
For shame, for shame…

[Burr]
Well, the word got around, they said,
«This kid is insane, man»
Took up a collection just to send him to the mainland.
«Get your education, don’t forget from whence you came,
And the world is gonna know your name.
What’s your name, man?»

[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]
When he was ten his father split, full of it, debt-ridden,
Two years later, see Alex and his mother bed-ridden,
Half-dead sittin in their own sick, the scent thick,
And Alex got better but his mother went quick.

[Washington]
Moved in with a cousin, the cousin committed suicide.
Left him with nothin’ but ruined pride,
Something new inside, a voice saying,
«Alex, you gotta fend for yourself»
He started retreatin’ and readin’ every treatise on the shelf.

America forgot him

Me? I died for him.

Me? I trusted him.

[Eliza/Angelica/Maria]
Me? I loved him.

And me? I’m the damn fool that shot him.
