Cabinet Battle #1 (Explicit) 歌詞

Cabinet Battle #1 (內閣爭論 1) - Lin-Manuel Miranda (林-曼努爾·米蘭達)/Christopher Jackson/Okieriete Onaodowan/Daveed Diggs

(《 亞歷山大·漢米爾頓》音樂劇插曲)

Ladies and gentlemen you coulda been anywhere in the world tonight

But you're here with us in New York city

Are you ready for a cabinet meeting

 

The issue on the table Secretary Hamilton's plan to assume state debt

And establish a national bank Secretary Jefferson you have the floor sir

 

Life liberty and the pursuit of happiness'

We fought for these ideals we shouldn't settle for less

These are wise words enterprising men quote 'em

Don't act surprised you guys cuz I wrote 'em

 

Oww

But Hamilton forgets

His plan would have the government assume state's debts

Now place your bets as to who that benefits

The very seat of government where Hamilton sits

 

Not true

Ooh if the shoe fits wear it

If New York's in debt

Why should Virginia bear it uh our debts are paid I'm afraid

Don't tax the South cuz we got it made in the shade

In Virginia we plant seeds in the ground

We create you just wanna move our money around

This financial plan is an outrageous demand

 

And it's too many damn pages for any man to understand

Stand with me in the land of the free

And pray to God we never see Hamilton's candidacy

Look when Britain taxed our tea we got frisky

Imagine what gon' happen when you try to tax our whisky

 

Thank you Secretary Jefferson Secretary Hamilton your responses

 

Thomas That was a real nice declaration

 

Welcome to the present we're running a real nation

Would you like to join us or stay mellow

Doin' whatever the hell it is you do in Monticello

 

If we assume the debts the union gets

A new line of credit a financial diuretic

How do you not get it

If we're aggressive and competitive

The union gets a boost

You'd rather give it a sedative

A civics lesson from a slaver hey neighbor

 

Your debts are paid cuz you don't pay for labor

 

We plant seeds in the South we create

Yeah keep ranting

We know who's really doing the planting

 

And another thing Mr. Age of Enlightenment

Don't lecture me about the war you didn't fight in it

You think I'm frightened of you man

We almost died in a trench

While you were off getting high with the French

Thomas Jefferson always hesitant with the President

Reticent there isn't a plan he doesn't jettison

Madison you're mad as a hatter son take your medicine

Damn you're in worse shape than the national debt is in

Sittin' there useless as two shits

 

Hey turn around bend over I'll show you

Where my shoe fits

Excuse me Jefferson Madison take a walk Hamilton take a walk

 

We'll reconvene after a brief recess Hamilton

Sir

A word

 

You don't have the votes

 

You don't have the votes

 

Aha-ha-ha ha

 

You're gonna need congressional approval and you don't have the votes

 

Such a blunder sometimes it makes me wonder why I even bring the thunder

Why he even brings the thunder

 

You wanna pull yourself together

 

I'm sorry these Virginians are birds of a feather

Young man I'm from Virginia so watch your mouth

So we let Congress get held hostage by the South

 

You need the votes

No we need bold strokes

We need this plan

No you need to convince more folks

James Madison won't talk to me that's a nonstarter

 

Winning was easy young man

Governing's harder

They're being intransigent

You have to find a compromise

But they don't have a plan they just hate mine

Convince them otherwise

What happens if I don't get congressional approval

 

I imagine they'll call for your removal

 

Sir

Figure it out Alexander

 

 

That's an order from your commander
