Lin-Manuel Miranda - Take A Break lyrics

[ELIZA] Un deux trois quatre Cinq six sept huit neuf Good! Un deux trois quatre Cinq six sept huit neuf Sept huit neuf— Sept huit neuf— [PHILIP] Un deux trois quatre Cinq six sept huit neuf Un deux trois quatre Cinq six sept huit neuf Sept huit neuf— Sept huit neuf— [ELIZA AND PHILIP] One two three four five six seven eight nine! [HAMILTON] My dearest, Angelica “Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow Creeps in this petty pace from day to day” I trust you'll understand the reference to Another Scottish tragedy without my having to name the play They think me Macbeth, and ambition is my folly I'm a polymath, a pain in the a**, a ma**ive pain Madison is Banquo, Jefferson's Macduff And Birnam Wood is Congress on its way to Dunsinane [HAMILTON/ANGELICA] And there you are, an ocean away Do you have to live an ocean away? Thoughts of you subside Then I get another letter I cannot put the notion away… [ELIZA] Take a break [HAMILTON] I am on my way [ELIZA] There's a little surprise before supper And it cannot wait [HAMILTON] I'll be there in just a minute, save my plate [ELIZA] Alexander— [HAMILTON] Okay, okay— [ELIZA] Your son is nine years old today And he has something that he'd like to say He's been practicing all day Philip, take it away— [PHILIP] Daddy, daddy, look— My name is Philip I am a poet I wrote this poem just To show it And I just turned nine You can write rhymes But you can't write mine I practice French And play piano with my mother I have a sister, but I want a little brother My daddy's trying to start America's bank Un deux trois quatre cinq! [HAMILTON] What! Uh-huh! Okay! Bravo! [ELIZA] Take a break [HAMILTON] Hey, our kid is pretty great [ELIZA] Run away with us for the summer Let's go upstate [HAMILTON] Eliza, I've got so much on my plate [ELIZA] We can all go stay with my father There's a lake I know… [HAMILTON] I know [ELIZA] In a nearby park [HAMILTON] I'd love to go [ELIZA] You and I can go when the night gets dark… [HAMILTON] I will try to get away [ANGELICA] My dearest Alexander You must get through to Jefferson Sit down with him and compromise Don't stop ‘til you agree Your fav'rite older sister Angelica, reminds you There's someone in your corner all the way across the sea In a letter I received from you two weeks ago I noticed a comma in the middle of a phrase It changed the meaning. Did you intend this? One stroke and you've consumed my waking days It says: [HAMILTON/ANGELICA] “My dearest Angelica” [ANGELICA] With a comma after “dearest.” You've written [HAMILTON AND ANGELICA] “My dearest, Angelica.” [ANGELICA] Anyway, all this to say I'm coming home this summer At my sister's invitation I'll be there with your fam'ly If you make your way upstate I know you're very busy I know your work's important But I'm crossing the ocean and I just can't wait [HAMILTON AND ANGELICA] You won't be an ocean away You will only be a moment away… [ELIZA] Alexander, come downstairs. Angelica's arriving today! [ELIZA] Angelica! [ANGELICA] Eliza! [HAMILTON] The Schuyler sisters! [ANGELICA] Alexander [HAMILTON] Hi [ANGELICA] It's good to see your face [ELIZA] Angelica, tell this man John Adams spends the summer with his family [HAMILTON] Angelica, tell my wife John Adams doesn't have a real job anyway [ANGELICA] …you're not joining us? Wait [HAMILTON] I'm afraid I cannot join you upstate [ANGELICA] Alexander, I came all this way [ELIZA] She came all this way— [ANGELICA] All this way— [ELIZA AND ANGELICA] Take a break [HAMILTON] You know I have to get my plan through Congress [ELIZA AND ANGELICA] Run away with us for the summer Let's go upstate [HAMILTON] I lose my job if we don't get this plan through Congress [ELIZA AND ANGELICA] We can all go stay with our father [ELIZA] There's a lake I know In a nearby park You and I can go Take a break and get away— Let's go upstate Where we can stay Look around, look around At how lucky we are to be alive right now— We can go— When the night gets dark Take a break. [ANGELICA] I know I'll miss your face— Screw your courage to the sticking place— Eliza's right— Take a break Run away with us for the summer— Let's go upstate We can all go stay with our father If you take your time— You will make your mark Close your eyes and dream— When the night gets dark Take a break. [HAMILTON] I have to get my plan through Congress I can't stop until I get this plan through Congress
