Lin-Manuel Miranda - Congratulations (Early Draft) lyrics

[ALEXANDER] Angelica [ANGELICA] Alexander Congratulations You have invented a new kind of stupid A 'damage you can never undo' kind of stupid An 'open all the cages in the zoo' kind of stupid Truly, you didn't think this through? Kind of stupid Let's review: You took a rumor a few, maybe two, people knew And refuted it by sharing an affair of which no one has accused you I begged you to take a break, you refused to So scared of what your enemies will do to you You're the only enemy you ever seem to lose to You know why Jefferson can do what he wants? He doesn't dignify schoolyard taunts with a response! So yeah, congratulations! [ALEXANDER] Angelica [ANGELICA] You've redefined your legacy Congratulations [ALEXANDER, spoken] It was an act of political sacrifice! [ANGELICA, spoken] Sacrifice (sung) I languished in a loveless marriage in London I lived only to read your letters I look at us and think 'God, what have we done with our lives and what did it get us?' That doesn't wipe the tears or the years away But I'm back in the city and I'm here to stay And I know what I'm here to do [ALEXANDER] Angelica [ANGELICA] I'm not here for you! I know my sister like I know my own mind You will never find anyone as trusting or as kind And a million years ago, she said to me "This one's mine" So I stood by Do you know why? I love my sister more than anything in this life I will always choose her happiness over mine every time Eliza Is the best thing in our life So never lose sight of the fact that you have been blessed with the best wife [Chorus] Congratulations For the rest of your life Every sacrifice you make is for my sister Give her the best life Congratulations
