Washington On Your Side
Lin-Manuel Miranda, Original Broadway Cast of Hamilton, Daveed Diggs, Okieriete Onaodowan, Leslie Odom, Jr.
It must be nice, it must be nice To have Washington on your side It must be nice, it must be nice To have Washington on your side Ev'ry action has its equal, opposite reactions Thanks to Hamilton, our cab'net's fractured into factions Try not to crack under the stress, we're breaking down like fractions We smack each other in the press, and we don't print retractions I get no satisfaction witnessing his fits of passion The way he primps and preens and dresses like the pits of fashion Our poorest citizens, our farmers, live ration to ration As Wall Street robs 'em blind in search of chips to cash in This prick is askin' for someone to bring him to task Somebody gimme some dirt on this vacuous mass so we can at last unmask him I'll pull the trigger on him, someone load the gun and crack it While we were all watching, he got Washington in his pocket It must be nice, it must be nice To have Washington on your side It must be nice, it must be nice To have Washington on your side Look back at the Bill of Rights Which I wrote The ink hasn't dried It must be nice, it must be nice To have Washington on your side So he's doubled the size of the government Wasn't the trouble with much our previous government size Look in his eyes See how he lies Follow the scent of his enterprise Centralizing national credit And making American credit competitive If we don't stop it we aid and abet it I have to resign Somebody has to stand up for the South Somebody has to stand up to his mouth If there's a fire you're trying to douse You can't put it out from inside the house I'm in the cabinet, I am complicit in Watching him grabbin' at power and kissin' it If Washington isn't gon' listen To disciplined dissidents, this is the difference This kid is out Oh This immigrant isn't somebody we chose Oh This immigrant's keeping us all on our toes Oh Let's show these Federalists who they're up against Oh Southern motherfuckin' Democratic Republicans Oh Let's follow the money and see where it goes Oh Because every second the Treasury grows Oh If we follow the money and see where it leads Get in the weeds, look for the seeds of Hamilton's misdeeds It must be nice, it must be nice Follow the money and see where it goes It must be nice, it must be nice The emperor has no clothes We won't be invisible, we won't be denied Still It must be nice, it must be nice To have Washington on your side
