Check it—Can I be real a second?For just a millisecond?Let down my guard and tell the people how I feel a second?Now I'm the model of a modern major generalThe venerated Virginian veteran whose men are allLining up, to put me up on a pedestalWritin' letters to relativesEmbellishin' my elegance and eloquenceBut the elephant is in the roomThe truth is in ya face when ya hear the British cannons go...[ENSEMBLE]Boom![WASHINGTON]Any hope of success is fleetingHow can I keep leading when the people I'mLeading keep retreating?We put a stop to the bleeding as the British take BrooklynKnight takes rook, but lookWe are outgunnedOutmannedOutnumberedOutplannedWe gotta make an all out standAyo, I'm gonna need a right-hand manIncoming!

Aaron Burr, Sir?Permission to state my case?[WASHINGTON]As you were[BURR]SirI was a captain under General MontgomeryUntil he caught a bullet in the neck in QuebecAnd well, in summaryI think that I could be of some assistanceI admire how you keep firing on the BritishFrom a distance[WASHINGTON]Huh[BURR]I have some questions, a couple of suggestions on how to fight instead of fleeing west[WASHINGTON]Yes?[BURR]Well—[HAMILTON]Your excellency, you wanted to see me?[WASHINGTON]Hamilton, come in, have you met Burr?[HAMILTON]Yes, sir[HAMILTON & BURR]We keep meeting[BURR]As I was saying, sir, I look forward to seeing your strategy play out[WASHINGTON]Burr?[BURR]Sir?[WASHINGTON]Close the door on your way out[HAMILTON]Have I done something wrong, sir?[WASHINGTON]On the contraryI called you here because our odds are beyond scaryYour reputation precedes you, but I have to laugh[HAMILTON]Sir?[WASHINGTON]Hamilton, how come no one can get you on their staff?[HAMILTON]Sir![WASHINGTON]Don't get me wrong, you're a young man of great renownI know you stole British cannons when we were still downtownNathaniel Green and Henry Knox wanted to hire you...[HAMILTON]To be their Secretary? I don't think so[WASHINGTON]Why're you upset?[HAMILTON]I'm not—[WASHINGTON]It's alright, you want to fight, you've got a hungerI was just like you when I was youngerHead full of fantasies of dyin' like a martyr?[HAMILTON]Yes[WASHINGTON]Dying is easy, young man.

Laurens, MulliganMarquis de Lafayette, okay, what else?[WASHINGTON & COMPANY]Outnumbered, outplanned![HAMILTON]We'll need some spies on the insideSome King's men who might let some things slideI'll write to Congress and tell ‘em we need supplies, you rally the guys,Master the element of surpriseI'll rise above my station, organize your information, ‘til we rise to the occasion of our new nation. Sir![ENSEMBLE]Here comes the General![HAMILTON]Rise up![LAURENS/LAFAYETTE/MULLIGAN]What?[ENSEMBLE]Here comes the General![HAMILTON/SCHUYLER SISTERS]Rise up![LAURENS/LAFAYETTE/MULLIGAN]What?[ENSEMBLE]Here comes the General![HAMILTON/SCHUYLER SISTERS]Rise up![LAURENS/LAFAYETTE/MULLIGAN]What?[COMPANY]Here comes the General![HAMILTON]What?[WASHINGTON]And his right hand man![COMPANY]Boom!
