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
