How does a ragtag volunteer army in need of a shower
Somehow defeat a global superpower?
How do we emerge victorious from the quagmire?
Leave the battlefield waving Betsy Ross' flag higher?
Yo
Turns out we have a secret weapon
An immigrant you know and love who's unafraid to step in
He's constantly confusin', confoundin' the British henchmen
Ev'ryone give it up for America's favorite fighting Frenchman

Lafayette

I'm takin this horse by the reins makin'
Redcoats redder with bloodstains

Lafayette

And I'm never gonna stop until I make 'em
Drop and burn 'em up and scatter their remains, I'm

Lafayette

Watch me engagin' em, escapin' em
Enragin' em
I'm

Lafayette

I go to France for more funds

Lafayette

I come back with more

Guns
And ships
And so the balance shifts

We rendezvous with Rochambeau, consolidate their gifts

We can end this war at Yorktown, cut them off at sea, but
For this to succeed, there's someone else we need

I know

Hamilton

Sir, he knows what to do in a trench
Ingenuitive and fluent in French, I mean

Hamilton

Sir, you're gonna have to use him eventually
What's he gonna do on the bench? 
I mean

Hamilton

No one has more resilience
Or matches my practical tactical brilliance

Hamilton

You wanna fight for your land back? (Hamilton)

I need my right hand man back (Hamilton)

Ah, uh, get ya right hand man back (Hamilton)
You know you gotta get ya right hand man back (Hamilton)

I mean you gotta put some thought into the letter but the sooner the better
To get your right hand man back 

Alexander Hamilton
Troops are waiting in the field for you
If you join us right now, together we can turn the tide
Oh, Alexander Hamilton
I have soldiers who will yield for you
If we manage to get this right
They'll surrender by early light
The world will never be the same, Alexander
