"What Comes Next?" is the 21st song of Act One of the musical Hamilton.
King George III reminds the colonists that now, even though they are free from British rule, that they have a future of doubt and decision ahead of them.
The price of my war’s not a price that they’re willing to pay
You cheat with the French, now I’m fighting with France and with Spain
I’m so blue
I thought that we’d made an arrangement
When you went away
You were mine to subdue
Well, even despite our estrangement, I’ve got
A small query for you:
What comes next?
You’ve been freed
Do you know how hard it is to lead?
You’re on your own
Do you have a clue what happens now?
It’s much harder when it’s all your call
All alone, across the sea
When your people say they hate you, don’t
Come crawling back to me
Da da da dat da dat da da da
Da ya da
Da da dat
Da da ya da...
