Lin-Manuel Miranda - The Schuyler Sisters (Off-Broadway) lyrics

[BURR] There's nothing rich folks love more Than going downtown and slummin' it with the poor They pull up in their carriages and gawk At the students in the common Just to watch them talk Take Philip Schuyler: the man is loaded Uh-oh, but little does he know that His daughters, Peggy, Angelica, Eliza Sneak into the city just to watch all the guys at— [COMPANY] Work, work! [ANGELICA] Angelica! [COMPANY] Work, work! [ELIZA] Eliza! [PEGGY] [COMPANY] And Peggy! Work, work! [COMPANY] The Schuyler sisters! Work! [PEGGY] Daddy said to be home by sundown [ANGELICA] Daddy doesn't need to know [PEGGY] Daddy said not to go downtown [ELIZA] Like I said, you're free to go [ANGELICA] But—look around, look around, the Revolution's happening in New York [ELIZA/PEGGY] New York [COMPANY] Angelica Work! [PEGGY] It's bad enough daddy wants to go to war [ELIZA] People shouting in the square [PEGGY] It's bad enough there'll be violence on our shore [ANGELICA] New ideas in the air [ANGELICA AND MALE ENSEMBLE] Look around, look around— [ELIZA] Angelica, remind me what we're looking for… [ALL MEN] She's lookin' for me!

There's nothin' like summer in the city Someone in a rush next to someone lookin' pretty Excuse me, miss, I know it's not funny But your perfume smells like your daddy's got money Why you slummin' in the city in your fancy heels You searchin for an urchin who can give you ideals? [ANGELICA] Burr, you disgust me [BURR] Ah, so you've discussed me I'm a trust fund, baby, you can trust me [ANGELICA] I've been reading Common Sense by Thomas Paine So men say that I'm intense or I'm insane You want a revolution? I want a revelation So listen to my declaration: [ELIZA/ANGELICA/PEGGY] “We hold these truths to be self-evident That all men are created equal” [ANGELICA] And when I meet Thomas Jefferson [ANGELICA AND COMPANY] Unh!
