Video hamilton we know lyrics

[Hamilton]Mr. Vice presidentMr. MadisonSenator BurrWhat is this?

[Jefferson]We have the check stubs from separate accounts

[Madison]Almost a thousand dollars, paid in different amounts

[Burr]To a mr. James reynolds way back inSeventeen ninety-one

[Hamilton]Is that what you have? Are you done?

[Madison]You are uniquely situated by virtue of your position

[Jefferson]Though virtue is not a word I’d apply to this situation

[Madison]To seek financial gain, to stray from your sacred mission

[Jefferson]And the evidence suggests you’ve engaged in speculation

[Burr]An immigrant embezzling our government funds

[Jefferson/madison]I can almost see the headline, your career is done

[Burr]I hope you saved some money for your daughter and sons

[Burr/jefferson/madison]Ya best g’wan run back where ya come from!

[Hamilton]Ha! You don’t even know what you’re asking me to confess

[Jefferson/madison/burr]Confess

[Hamilton]You have nothing, I don’t have to tell you anything at allUnless

[Jefferson/madison/burr]Unless

[Hamilton]If I can prove that I never broke the lawDo you promise not to tell another soul what you saw?

[Burr]No one else was in the room where it happened

[Hamilton]Is that a yes?

[Jefferson/madison/burr]Um, yes

[Burr]Dear sir, I hope this letter finds you in good healthAnd in a prosperous enough position to put wealthIn the pockets of people like me: Down on their luckYou see, it was my wife who you decided to

[Jefferson]Whaaaat—

[Hamilton]She courted meEscorted me to bed and when she had me in a cornerThat’s when reynolds extorted meFor a sordid feeI paid him quarterlyI may have mortally wounded my prospectsBut my papers are orderly!As you can see I kept a record of every check in my checkeredHistory, check it again against your list n’ see consistencyI never spent a cent that wasn’t mineYou sent the dogs after my scent, that’s fineYes, I have reasons for shameBut I have not committed treasonAnd sullied my good nameAs you can see I have done nothing to provoke legal actionAre my answers to your satisfaction?

[Jefferson]My God

[Madison]Gentlemen, let’s go

[Hamilton]So?

[Jefferson and madison]The people won’t know what we know

[Hamilton]Burr!How do I know you won’t use this against meThe next time we go toe to toe?

[Burr]Alexander, rumors only growAnd we both know what we know
