Hamilton the Musical – The Story of Tonight (Reprise) Lyrics

 

LAURENS

I may not live to see our glory!

 

MULLIGAN/LAFAYETTE

I may not live to see our glory!

 

LAURENS

But I’ve seen wonders great and small.

 

MULLIGAN/LAFAYETTE

I’ve seen wonders great and small.

 

LAURENS

Cuz if the tomcat can get married,

 

MULLIGAN/LAFAYETTE

If Alexander can get married-

 

LAURENS

There’s hope for our ass, after all!

 

LAFAYETTE

Raise a glass to freedom.

 

LAURENS/MULLIGAN

Hey!

Something you will never see again!

 

MULLIGAN

No matter what she tells you.

 

LAFAYETTE

Let’s have another round tonight!

 

LAURENS

Raise a glass to the four of us!

 

LAFAYETTE/HAMILTON

Ho!

 

MULLIGAN

To the newly not poor of us!

 

LAURENS/LAFAYETTE/HAMILTON

Woo!

 

LAFAYETTE

We’ll tell the story of tonight.

 

LAURENS

Let’s have another round-

 

HAMILTON

Well, if it isn’t Aaron Burr.

 

BURR

Sir!

 

HAMILTON

I didn’t think you would make it.

 

BURR

To be sure.

 

MULLIGAN/LAFAYETTE

Burr!

 

BURR

I came to say congratulations.

 

MULLIGAN

Spit a verse, Burr!

 

BURR

I see the whole gang is here.

 

LAFAYETTE

You are the worst, Burr!

 

HAMILTON

Ignore them. Congrats to you, Lieutenant Colonel.

I wish I had your command instead of manning George’s journal.

 

BURR

No, you don’t.

 

HAMILTON

Yes, I do.

 

BURR

Now, be sensible.

From what I hear, you’ve made yourself indispensable.

 

LAURENS

Well, well, I heard

You’ve got a special someone on the side, Burr.

 

HAMILTON

Is that so?

 

LAURENS

What are you tryin’ to hide, Burr?

 

BURR

I should go.

 

HAMILTON

No, these guys should go.

 

LAFAYETTE

What?

 

LAURENS

No!

 

HAMILTON

Leave us alone.

 

MULLIGAN

Man…

 

HAMILTON

It’s alright, Burr.

I wish you’d brought this girl with you tonight, Burr.

 

BURR

You’re very kind, but I’m afraid it’s unlawful, sir.

 

HAMILTON

What do you mean?

 

BURR

She’s married.

 

HAMILTON

I see.

 

BURR

She’s married to a British officer.

 

HAMILTON

Oh shit…

 

BURR

Congrats again, Alexander. Smile more.

I’ll see you on the other side of the war.

 

HAMILTON

I will never understand you.

If you love this woman, go get her!

What are you waiting for?

 

BURR

I’ll see you on the other side of the war.

 

HAMILTON

I’ll see you on the other side of the war.
