Lin-Manuel Miranda - Schuyler Defeated lyrics

[PHILIP] Look! Grandpa's in the paper! “War hero Philip Schuyler loses senate seat to young upstart Aaron Burr” Grandpa just lost his seat in the senate [ELIZA] Sometimes that's how it goes [PHILIP] Daddy's gonna find out any minute [ELIZA] I'm sure he already knows [PHILIP] Further down [PHILIP & ELIZA] Further down [PHILIP] Let's meet the newest senator from New York [ELIZA] New York [PHILIP & ELIZA] Our senator [HAMILTON] Burr? Since when are you a Democratic-Republican? [BURR] Since being one put me on the up and up again [HAMILTON] No one knows who you are or what you do [BURR] They don't need to know me They don't like you [HAMILTON] Excuse me? [BURR] Oh, Wall Street thinks you're great You'll always be adored by the things you create But upstate— [HAMILTON] Wait [BURR] —people think you're crooked Schuyler's seat was up for grabs so I took it [HAMILTON] I've always considered you a friend [BURR] I don't see why that has to end [HAMILTON] You changed parties to run against my father-in-law [BURR] I changed parties to seize the opportunity I saw I swear your pride will be the d**h of us all Beware, it goeth before the fall
