[00:01.98]How does a bastard, orphan son of a whore
[00:06.75]And a Scotsman, dropped in the middle of a forgotten spot in the Caribbean
[00:12.23]By providence, impoverished, in squalor, grow up to be a hero and a scholar?
[00:16.98]The 10 dollar
[00:19.49]Founding father without a father
[00:21.75]Got a lot farther by working a lot harder, by being a lot smarter
[00:25.48]By being a self-starter, by 14 they placed him in charge of a trading charter
[00:30.48]And everyday while slaves were being slaughtered and carted away
[00:36.98]Across the waves, he struggled and kept his guard up
[00:40.48]Inside he was longing for something to be a part of
[00:43.98]The brother was ready to beg, steal, borrow or barter
[00:48.23]Then a hurricane came, and devastation reigned
[00:52.24]Our man saw his future drip, dripping down the drain
[00:55.49]Put a pencil to his temple, connected it to his brain
[00:59.23]And he wrote his first refrain, a testament to his pain
[01:02.98]Well the word got around, they said
[01:04.99]"This kid is insane, man!"
[01:06.98]Took up a collection just to send him to the mainland
[01:10.73]"Get your education, don't forget from whence you came
[01:14.24]And the world's gonna know your name. What's your name man?"
[01:18.23]Alexander Hamilton
[01:21.98]My name is Alexander Hamilton
[01:25.74]And there's a million thing I haven't done
[01:28.99]But just you wait, just you wait
[01:30.73]When he was 10, his father split, full of it, debt ridden
[01:37.23]2 years later, see Alex and his mother bed-ridden
[01:41.01]Half-dead, sitting in their own sick, the scent thick
[01:44.75]And Alex got better but his mother went quick
[01:48.23]Moved in with a cousin, the cousin committed suicide
[01:51.98]Left him with nothing but ruined pride, something new inside
[01:56.48]A voice saying, "Alex you gotta fend for yourself"
[01:58.99]He started retreating and reading every treatise on the shelf
[02:02.98]There woulda been nothing left to do for someone less astute
[02:06.48]He woulda been dead and destitute without a cent of restutition
[02:09.98]Started working, clerking for his late mother's landlord
[02:13.98]Trading sugar cane and rum and all the things he can't afford
[02:17.49]Scanning for every book he can get his hands on
[02:21.23]Planning for the future, see him now as he stands on
[02:24.24]The bow of a ship headed for a new land
[02:27.74]In New York you can be a new man
[02:31.22]Just you wait
[02:34.73](In New York you can be a new man) Just you wait
[02:38.73]In New York you can be a new man
[02:41.98]In New York (New York)
[02:44.00]Just you wait!
[02:45.73]Alexander Hamilton (Alexander Hamilton), we're waiting in the wings for you (waiting in the wings for you)
[02:52.48]You could never back down, you never learned to take your time
[02:56.73]Oh, Alexander Hamilton (Alexander Hamilton), when America sings for you
[03:06.48]Will they know what you overcame?
[03:09.98]Will they know you rewrote the game?
[03:13.23]The world will never be same, oh
[03:20.98]The ship is in the harbor now, see if you can spot him
[03:24.73]Another immigrant coming up from the bottom
[03:27.73]His enemies destroyed his rep, America forgot him
[03:31.48]We fought with him
[03:33.48]Me? I died for him
[03:35.23]Me? I trusted him
[03:36.97]Me? I loved him
[03:38.50]And me? I'm the damn fool that shot him
[03:42.99]There's a million thing I haven't done
[03:45.75]But just you wait
[03:48.48]What's your name man?
[03:50.49]Alexander Hamilton!
