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]
