Lyrics

[SEABURY]

Heed not the rabble who scream revolution

They have not your interests at heart

[unseen]

Oh my God. Tear this dude apart

[SEABURY]

Chaos and bloodshed are not a solution

Don’t let them lead you astray

This Congress does not speak for me

They’re playing a dangerous game

I pray the king shows you his mercy

For shame, for shame…

[HAMILTON]

Yo!

He'd have you all unravel at the sound of screams

But the Revolution is comin'

The have-nots are gonna win this

It's hard to listen to you with a straight face

Heed not the rabble who scream Revolution

They have not your interests at heart

Chaos and bloodshed already haunt us, honestly you shouldn't even talk

And what about Boston? Look at the cost

N' all that we've lost n' you talk about Congress?!

[SEABURY]

This Congress does not speak for me

[HAMILTON]

My dog speaks more eloquently

[SEABURY]

They're playing a dangerous game

[HAMILTON]

But strangely your mange is the same

[SEABURY]

I pray the king shows you his mercy

[HAMILTON]

Is he in Jersey?

[SEABURY]

For shame!

[HAMILTON]

For the revolution!

[SEABURY]

For shame!

[HAMILTON]

For the revolution!

[SEABURY]

Heed...

[HAMILTON]

If you repeat yourself I'm gonna

[SEABURY/HAMILTON]

Scream

[HAMILTON]

Honestly, look at me please don't read

[SEABURY] Not your interests—

[HAMILTON]

Don’t modulate the key then not debate with me!

Why should a tiny island across the sea regulate the price of tea?

[SEABURY]

For shame!

[HAMILTON]

For my birthday!

[SEABURY]

For his birthday, birthday boy!
