Alright, alright
That’s what I’m talkin’ about
Now everyone give it up for the maid of honor
Angelica Schuyler

A toast to the groom (to the groom, to the groom, to the groom)

To the bride (to the bride, to the bride)

From your sister (Angelica, Angelica, Angelica)

Who is always by your side (by your side)

To your union (to the union, to the revolution)

And the hope that you provide (your provide, you provide)

May you always (always)

Be satisfied (rewind, rewind)	 

I remember that night, I just might (rewind)
I remember that night, I just might (rewind)
I remember that night, I remember that

I remember that night, I just might
Regret that night for the rest of my days

I remember those soldier boys
Tripping over themselves to win our praise

I remember that dreamlike candlelight
Like a dream that you can’t quite place

But Alexander, I’ll never forget the first
Time I saw your face

I have never been the same
Intelligent eyes in a hunger-pang frame
And when you said hi, I forgot my dang name
Set my heart aflame, ev’ry part aflame
This is not a game

You strike me as a woman who has never been satisfied

I’m sure I don’t know what you mean
You forget yourself

You’re like me
I’m never satisfied

Is that right?

I have never been satisfied

My name is Angelica Schuyler

Alexander Hamilton

Where’s your fam’ly from?

Unimportant
There’s a million things I haven’t done but
Just you wait, just you wait

So so so
So this is what it feels like to match wits
With someone at your level! What the hell is the catch? 
It’s the feeling of freedom, of seein’ the light
It’s Ben Franklin with a key and a kite
You see it, right?
The conversation lasted two minutes, maybe three minutes
Ev’rything we said in total agreement, 
It’s a dream and it’s a bit of a dance
A bit of a posture, it’s a bit of a stance
He’s a bit of a flirt, but I’m ‘a give it a chance
I asked about his fam’ly, did you see his answer?
His hands started fidgeting, he looked askance?
He’s penniless, he’s flying by the seat of his pants

Handsome, boy, does he know it
Peach fuzz, and he can’t even grow it
I wanna take him far away from this place
Then I turn and see my sister’s face and she is

Helpless

And I know she is

Helpless

And her eyes are just

Helpless

And I realize

Three fundamental truths at the exact same time

Where are you taking me?

I’m about to change your life

Then by all means, lead the way

Number one

I’m a girl in a world in which
My only job is to marry rich
My father has no sons so I’m the one
Who has to social climb for one
So I’m the oldest and the wittiest and the gossip in
New York City is insidious
And Alexander is penniless
Ha
That doesn’t mean I want him any less

Elizabeth Schuyler
It’s a pleasure to meet you

Schuyler?

My sister

Number two

He’s after me 'cause I’m a Schuyler sister
That elevates his status, I’d
Have to be naïve to set that aside
Maybe that is why I introduce him to Eliza
Now that’s his bride
Nice going, Angelica, he was right
You will never be satisfied

Thank you for all your service

If it takes fighting a war for us to meet, it will have been worth it

I’ll leave you to it

Number three

I know my sister like I know my own mind
You will never find anyone as trusting or as kind
If I tell her that I love him she’d be silently resigned
He’d be mine
She would say, I’m fine
She’d be lying

But when I fantasize at night
It’s Alexander’s eyes
As I romanticize what might
Have been if I hadn’t sized him
Up so quickly
At least my dear Eliza’s his wife
At least I keep his eyes in my life

To the groom (to the groom, to the groom, to the groom)

To the bride (to the bride, to the bride)

From your sister (Angelica, Angelica)

Who is always by your side

To your union

And the hope that you provide (you provide, you provide)

May you always (always)

Be satisfied (be satisfied)

And I know

She’ll be happy as

His bride
And I know

He will never be satisfied
I will never be satisfied
