Look Grandpa's in the paper War hero Philip Schuyler loses senate seat to young upstart Aaron Burr Grandpa just lost his seat in the senate Sometimes that's how it goes Daddy's gonna find out any minute I'm sure he already knows Further down Further down Let's meet the newest senator from New York New York Our senator Burr Since when are you a Democratic Republican Since being one put me on the up and up again No one knows who you are or what you do They don't need to know me They don't like you Excuse me Oh, Wall Street thinks you're great You'll always be adored by the things you create But upstate Wait People think you're crooked Schuyler's seat was up for grabs so I took it I've always considered you a friend I don't see why that has to end You changed parties to run against my father in law I changed parties to seize the opportunity I saw I swear your pride will be the death of us all Beware, it goeth before the fall
