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 is 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

Get your right-hand man back!

Hamilton!

You know you gotta get ya right-hand man back

Your right-hand man back!

Hamilton!

I mean you gotta put some thought into the letter

Ha—ha—Hamilton

But the sooner the better to get your right-hand man back!

Hamilton, ha—ha—

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 that 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…
