Angelica Schuyler
, ALL MEN,
Eliza Schuyler
AND WOMEN] From your sister Angelica! Angelica! Angelica! Who is always by your side By your side! By your side! To your union To the union! To the revolution! And the hope that you provide You provide! You provide! [
Angelica Schuyler
,
Alexander Hamilton
AND MEN,
Eliza Schuyler
AND WOMEN] May you always... (Always) Be satisfied (Rewind) [Recorded Samples] Rewind, Rewind Helpless, sky's, sky's Drownin' in em Drownin', rewind I remember that night, I just might (rewind) I remember that night, I just might (rewind) I remember that night, I remember that— [
Angelica Schuyler
] 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 [FULL COMPANY] This is not a game… [
Alexander Hamilton
] You strike me as a woman who has never been satisfied [
Angelica Schuyler
] I’m sure I don’t know what you mean. You forget yourself [
Alexander Hamilton
] You’re like me. I’m never satisfied [
Angelica Schuyler
] Is that right? [
Alexander Hamilton
] I have never been satisfied [
Angelica Schuyler
] My name is Angelica Schuyler [
Alexander Hamilton
] Alexander Hamilton [
Angelica Schuyler
] Where’s your fam’ly from? [
Alexander Hamilton
] Unimportant. There’s a million things I haven’t done but Just you wait, just you wait… [
Angelica Schuyler
] 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… [
Eliza Schuyler
] Helpless… [
Angelica Schuyler
] And I know she is… [
Eliza Schuyler
] Helpless… [
Angelica Schuyler
] And her eyes are just… [
Eliza Schuyler
] Helpless… [
Angelica Schuyler
] And I realize [
Angelica Schuyler
AND COMPANY] Three fundamental truths at the exact same time… [
Alexander Hamilton
] Where are you taking me? [
Angelica Schuyler
] I’m about to change your life [
Alexander Hamilton
] Then by all means, lead the way [COMPANY (EXCEPT ANGELICA)] Number one! [
Angelica Schuyler
] 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 [
Eliza Schuyler
] Elizabeth Schuyler. It’s a pleasure to meet you [
Alexander Hamilton
] Schuyler? [
Angelica Schuyler
] My sister [COMPANY] Number two! [
Angelica Schuyler
] He’s after me cuz 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 [
Eliza Schuyler
] Thank you for all your service [
Alexander Hamilton
] If it takes fighting a war for us to meet, it will have been worth it [
Angelica Schuyler
] I’ll leave you to it [COMPANY] Number three! [
Angelica Schuyler
] 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” [
Angelica Schuyler
AND COMPANY] She’d be lying [
Angelica Schuyler
] 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… [
Angelica Schuyler
] He will never be satisfied I will never be satisfied [
Angelica Schuyler
, ALL MEN (EXCEPT HAMILTON), ALL WOMEN (EXCEPT ELIZA)] To the groom! To the groom! To the groom! To the groom! To the bride! To the bride! To the bride! To the bride! [
Angelica Schuyler
, ALL MEN,
Eliza Schuyler
AND WOMEN] From your sister Angelica! Angelica! Angelica! Who is always by your side By your side! By your side! To your union To the union! To the revolution! And the hope that you provide You provide! You provide! [
Angelica Schuyler
,
Alexander Hamilton
AND MEN,
Eliza Schuyler
AND WOMEN] May you always... (Always) Be satisfied Be satisfied Be satisfied Be satisfied [
Angelica Schuyler
, MEN, WOMEN] And I know Be satisfied Be satisfied Be satisfied She'll be happy as his bride Be satisfied Be satisfied Be satisfied Be satisfied And I know Be satisfied Be satisfied Be satisfied Be satisfied He will never be satisfied I will never be satisfied
