"The Adams Administration" is the 11th song of Act Two of the musical Hamilton. It is the 34th song overall.
After Washington, who has been the support of Hamilton's power, steps down from office, Hamilton's political reputation starts to decline. He fights with John Adams, who is of his same political party, effectively destroying the Adams Administration and proving to further make worse his reputation.
How does Hamilton, the short-tempered
Protean creator of the Coast Guard
Founder of the New York Post
Ardently abuse his cabinet post
Destroy his reputation?
Welcome, folks, to
[BURR & COMPANY]
The Adams administration!
Jefferson's the runner-up
Which makes him the vice president
Washington can't help you now
No more mister nice president
Adams fires Hamilton
Privately calls him 'creole bastard' in his taunts
Hamilton publishes his response
Sit down, John, you fat mother–[BLEEP]!
Hamilton is out of control
This is great!
He's out of power, he holds no office
And he just destroyed president John Adams
The only other significant member of his party
Hamilton is a host unto himself
As long as he can hold a pen, he's a threat
Let's let him know what we know
Although the bleeped line is ostensibly "You fat motherfucker!" Lin-Manuel Mirandarevealed in a behind-the-scenes look at the recording that he actually recorded himself as saying "You fat motherfuckstick!"
