Lyrics of Alexander Hamilton

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