Alexander Hamilton There would have been nothin' left to do for someone less astute
He woulda been dead or destitute without a cent of restitution
How does a bastard, orphan, son of a whore Started workin', clerkin' for his late mother’s landlord
And a Scotsman, dropped in the middle of a forgotten Tradin' sugar cane and rum and all the things he can’t afford
spot in the Caribbean by providence impoverished, Scammin' for every book he can get his hands on
In squalor, grow up to be a hero and a scholar? Plannin' for the future see him now as he stands on the bow of a ship headed for a new land
The ten-dollar founding father without a father In New York you can be a new man
Got a lot farther by working a lot harder In New York you can be a new man
By being a lot smarter By being a self-starter In New York you can be a new man
By fourteen, they placed him in charge of a trading charter In New York you can be a new man
And every day while slaves were being slaughtered and carted away In New York you can be a new man
Across the waves, he struggled and kept his guard up Just you wait
Inside, he was longing for something to be a part of Alexander Hamilton
The brother was ready to beg, steal, borrow, or barter We are waiting in the wings for you
Then a hurricane came, and devastation reigned You could never back down
Our man saw his future drip, dripping down the drain You never learned to take your time
Put a pencil to his temple, connected it to his brain Oh, Alexander Hamilton
And he wrote his first refrain, a testament to his pain When America sings for you
Well, the word got around, they said, this kid is insane, man Will they know what you overcame?
Took up a collection just to send him to the mainland Will they know you rewrote your game?
Get your education, don’t forget from whence you came The world will never be the same, oh
And the world is gonna know your name The ship is in the harbor now
What’s your name, man? See if you can spot him
Alexander Hamilton Another immigrant comin' up from the bottom
My name is Alexander Hamilton His enemies destroyed his rep America forgot him
And there’s a million things I haven’t done We fought with him
But just you wait, just you wait Me, I died for him
When he was ten his father split, full of it, debt-ridden Me, I trusted him
Two years later, see Alex and his mother bed-ridden Me, I loved him
Half-dead sittin' in their own sick, the scent thick And me, I’m the damn fool that shot him
And Alex got better but his mother went quick There’s a million things I haven’t done
Moved in with a cousin, the cousin committed suicide But just you wait
Left him with nothin' but ruined pride, something new inside voice saying What’s your name, man?
Alex, you gotta fend for yourself Alexander Hamilton
He started retreatin' and readin' every treatise on the shelf 5
