 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

I may not live to see our glory
I may not live to see our glory

But I’ve seen wonders great and small
I’ve seen wonders great and small
‘Cause if the tomcat can get married
If Alexander can get married

There’s hope for our ass, after all
Raise a glass to freedom

Something you will never see again
No matter what she tells you
Let’s have another round tonight
Raise a glass to the four of us

To the newly not poor of us
We’ll tell the story of tonight
Let’s have another round
Well, if it isn’t Aaron Burr

I didn’t think that you would make it
To be sure
I came to say congratulations
Spit a verse, Burr

I see the whole gang is here
You are the worst, Burr

Ignore them
Congrats to you, Lieutenant Colonel
I wish I had your command instead of manning George’s journal

No, you don’t

Yes, I do

Now, be sensible
From what I hear, you’ve made yourself indispensable

Well, well, I heard
You’ve got a special someone on the side, Burr

Is that so?

What are you tryin’ to hide, Burr?

I should go

No, these guys should go



Leave us alone


It’s alright, Burr
I wish you’d brought this girl with you tonight, Burr

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

What do you mean?

She’s married

I see

She’s married to a British officer

Oh shit

Congrats again, Alexander
Smile more
I’ll see you on the other side of the war

I will never understand you
If you love this woman, go get her
What are you waiting for?

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

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