Lyrics[edit | edit source]

How does a bastard, orphan, son of [hiccups] a whore and a Scotsman,
Dropped in the middle of a forgotten spot in the Caribbean by providence, impoverished, in squalor
Grow up to be a hero and a scholar? [hiccups]
The ten dollar Founding Father without a father
Got a lot farther by working a lot harder
By being a lot smarter
By being a self-starter [hiccups]
By fourteen, they placed him in charge of a trading charter
And every day while slaves were being slaughtered and carted
Away across the waves, [hiccups] he struggled and kept his guard up
Inside, he was longing for something to be a part of
The brother was ready [hiccups] to beg, steal, borrow or barter
Then a hurricane came and devastation reigned
Our man saw his future drip, [hiccups] dripping down the drain
Put a pencil to his temple, connected it to his brain
And he wrote his first refrain, a testament to his pain [continued sniffles, hiccups]
Well, the word got around, and they said, "This kid is insane, man"
Took up a collection just to send him to the mainland [hiccups]
"Get your education, don't forget from whence you came, and
The world's gonna know your name What's your name, man?
Alexander Hamilton [hiccups]
My name is Alexander Hamilton
And there's a million things I haven't done
But just you wait, just you wait... [hiccups]
