[ELIZA] [ALL WOMEN] Ohh, I do I do I do I Hey hey hey hey Dooo! Hey! Hey hey hey hey Ohh, I do I do I do I Hey hey hey hey Dooo! Boy you got me Hey hey hey [ELIZA AND WOMEN] Helpless! Look into your eyes, and the sky's the limit I'm helpless! Down for the count, and I'm drownin' in ‘em [ELIZA] I have never been the type to try and grab the spotlight We were at a revel with some rebels on a hot night Laughin' at my sister as she's dazzling the room Then you walked in and my heart went “Boom!” Tryin' to catch your eye from the side of the ballroom Everybody's dancin' and the band's top volume [ELIZA AND WOMEN] Grind to the rhythm as we wine and dine [ELIZA] Grab my sister and whisper "Yo this one's mine." [ALL WOMEN] Oooh My sister made her way across the room to you Oooh And I got heated, thinking "What's she gonna do?" Oooh She grabbed you by the arm I'm thinkin' "I'm through" Oooh Then you look back at me and suddenly I'm Helpless! Look at those eyes Look into those eyes and the sky's the limit Oh!I'm I'm Helpless Helpless! I know Down for the count And I'm drownin' in 'em I'm helpless! I'm so into you Look into your eyes I am so into you and the sky's the limit I'm Helpless! I know Down for the count And I'm drownin' in 'em [HAMILTON] Where are you taking me? [ANGELICA] I'm about to change your life [HAMILTON] Then by all means, lead the way [ELIZA] Elizabeth Schuyler. It's a pleasure to meet you [HAMILTON] Schuyler? [ANGELICA] My sister [ELIZA] Thank you for all your service [HAMILTON] If it takes fighting a war for us to meet it will have been worth it [ANGELICA] I'll leave you to it [ELIZA AND WOMEN] One week later [ELIZA] I'm writin' a letter nightly Now my life gets better, every letter that you write me Laughin' at my sister, cuz she wants to form a harem [ANGELICA] I'm just sayin', if you really loved me, you would share him [ELIZA] Ha! Two weeks later [ALL WOMEN] In the living room stressin' Stressin' My father's stone faced whike you're asking for his blessin' Blessin' I'm dying inside as you wine and dine And I'm tryin' not to cry 'cause there's nothing that your mind can't do Oooh My father makes his way across the room to you Oooh I panic for a second, thinking "We're through" Oooh But then he shakes your hand and says, "Be true" Oooh And you turn back to me smiling, and I'm Helpless! Look into your eyes And the sky's the limit I'm Helpless! Helpless! Hoo! Down for the count And I'm drownin' in 'em I'm Helpless! That boy is mine That boy is mine!
