[BURR]

D7 D7 F#m F#m D7 D7
There’s nothing like summer in the city
F#m F#m D7 D7
Someone under stress meets someone looking pretty
Faug Faug
There’s trouble in the air, you can smell it

And Alexander’s by himself. I’ll let him tell it


[HAMILTON]

A A
I hadn’t slept in a week

I was weak, I was awake
Aaug Aaug
You never seen a bastard orphan

More in need of a break
F#m/A F#m/A
Longing for Angelica

Missing my wife
A7 A7
That’s when Miss Maria Reynolds walked into my life, she said:


[MARIA]

A A
I know you are a man of honor
Aaug Aaug
I’m so sorry to bother you at home
F#m/A F#m/A A7 A7
But I don’t know where to go, and I came here all alone…


[HAMILTON]

She said:


[MARIA]

A A
My husband’s doin’ me wrong
Aaug Aaug
Beatin’ me, cheatin’ me, mistreatin’ me...
F#m/A F#m/A
Suddenly he’s up and gone
A7 A7
I don’t have the means to go on


[HAMILTON]

F#m F#m D7 D7
So I offered her a loan, I offered to walk her home, she said


[MARIA]

You’re too kind, sir


[HAMILTON]

F#m F#m
I gave her thirty bucks that I had socked away
D7 D7
She lived a block away, she said:

[MARIA]

This one’s mine, sir


[HAMILTON]

F#m F#m
Then I said, “well, I should head back home,”
D7 D7
She turned red, she led me to her bed

Let her legs spread and said:


[MARIA]

Faug Faug
Stay?


[HAMILTON]

Hey…


[MARIA]

Hey…


[HAMILTON]

That’s when I began to pray:
A A
Lord, show me how to

Say no to this
Aaug Aaug
I don’t know how to

Say no to this
F#m/A F#m/A
But my God, she looks so helpless
A7 A7
And her body’s saying, “hell, yes”


[MARIA]

A A
Whoa...


[HAMILTON]

Nooo, show me how to


[HAMILTON/ENSEMBLE]

Say no to this


[HAMILTON]

Aaug Aaug
I don’t know how to


[HAMILTON/ENSEMBLE]

Say no to this


[HAMILTON]

F#m/A F#m/A
In my mind, I’m tryin’ to go


(ENSEMBLE)

Go! Go! Go!


[HAMILTON]

A7 A7 D D
Then her mouth is on mine, and I don’t say…


[ENSEMBLE]

A A
No! No!

Say no to this!
Aaug Aaug
No! No!

Say no to this!
F#m/A F#m/A
No! No!

Say no to this!
A7 A7
No! No!

Say no to this!


[HAMILTON]

A A
I wish I could say that was the last time
Aaug Aaug
I said that last time. It became a pastime
F#m/A F#m/A
A A month into this endeavor I received a letter
A7 A7
From a Mr. James Reynolds, even better, it said:


[JAMES]

A5 A5
Dear Sir, I hope this letter finds you in good health

And in a prosperous enough position to put wealth

In the pockets of people like me: down on their luck

You see, that was my wife who you decided to


[HAMILTON]

Fuuuu—


[JAMES]

Uh-oh! You made the wrong sucker a cuckold

So time to pay the piper for the pants you unbuckled

And hey, you can keep seein’ my whore wife

If the price is right: if not I’m telling your wife


[HAMILTON]

F#m F#m
I hid the letter and I raced to her place
D7 D7
Screamed “How could you?!” in her face

She said:


[MARIA]

No, sir!


[HAMILTON]

F#m F#m
Half dressed, apologetic. A A mess, she looked
D7 D7
Pathetic, she cried:


[MARIA]

Please don’t go, sir!


[HAMILTON]

F#m F#m
So was your whole story a setup?


[MARIA]

I don’t know about any letter!


[HAMILTON]

E/F# E/F#
Stop crying Goddamnit, get up!


[MARIA]

E E
I didn’t know any better


[HAMILTON]

D D
I am ruined...


[MARIA] / [HAMILTON]

Please don’t leave me with him / I am
E E D D
helpless / helpless, how could I do

Just give him what he wants / this?
E E D D
and you can have me
/ I don't want you
Whatever you want, / I don't want you


[MARIA]

Bbm Bbm
If you pay
Bb Bb B B
You can stay

[HAMILTON]

B B
Lord, show me how to

Say no to this
Baug Baug
I don't know how to

Say no to this
Abm/B Abm/B
But the situation's helpless
B7 B7
And her body's screaming

Hell yes
B B
No, show me how to

Say no to this
Baug Baug
How can I

Say no to this?
Abm/B Abm/B
There is nowhere I

can go
B7 B7
When her body's on
E E
mine I do not say...


[ENSEMBLE]
B B
No!
Say no to this!
Baug Baug
No!
Say no to this!
Abm/B Abm/B

There is nowhere I can go

Go go go
B7 B7

[JAMES]

Nobody needs to know
