Lin-Manuel Miranda - Schuyler Defeated (Off-Broadway) lyrics

[PHILIP] Look! Grandpa's in the paper! "War hero Philip Schuyler in danger of losing senate 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, 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 know who you are or what you do [BURR] They don't need to know me, they don't like you [HAMILTON] Excuse me? [BURR] All of 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 capital [HAMILTON] Wait- [BURR] The a**hole who taxes the a-a-alcohol! [HAMILTON] I 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 d**h 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
