[

] I may not live to see our glory! [
Hercules Mulligan

Marquis de Lafayette
] I may not live to see our glory! [
John Laurens
] But I’ve seen wonders great and small [
Hercules Mulligan
/
Marquis de Lafayette
] I’ve seen wonders great and small [
John Laurens
] ‘Cause if the tomcat can get married [
Hercules Mulligan
/
Marquis de Lafayette
] If Alexander can get married— [
John Laurens
] There’s hope for our ass, after all! [
Marquis de Lafayette
] Raise a glass to freedom [
John Laurens
/
Hercules Mulligan
] Hey! Something you will never see again! [
Hercules Mulligan
] No matter what she tells you [
Marquis de Lafayette
] Let’s have another round tonight! [
John Laurens
] Raise a glass to the four of us! [

] We’ll tell the story of tonight [
John Laurens
] Let’s have another round— [
Alexander Hamilton

Aaron Burr
] Sir! [
Alexander Hamilton
] I didn’t think that you would make it [
Aaron Burr
] To be sure [
Hercules Mulligan
/
Marquis de Lafayette
] Burr! [
Aaron Burr
] I came to say congratulations [
Hercules Mulligan
] Spit a verse, Burr! [
Aaron Burr
] I see the whole gang is here [
Marquis de Lafayette
] You are the worst, Burr! [
Alexander Hamilton
] Ignore them. Congrats to you, Lieutenant Colonel I wish I had your command instead of manning George’s journal [
Aaron Burr
] No, you don’t [
Alexander Hamilton
] Yes, I do [
Aaron Burr
] Now, be sensible From what I hear, you’ve made yourself indispensable [
John Laurens
] Well, well, I heard You’ve got a special someone on the side, Burr [
Alexander Hamilton

Alexander Hamilton
] Leave us alone [
Hercules Mulligan
] Man… [
Alexander Hamilton
] It’s alright, Burr. I wish you’d brought this girl with you tonight, Burr [
Aaron Burr

] She’s married [
Alexander Hamilton
] I see [
Aaron Burr
] She’s married to a British officer [
Alexander Hamilton
] Oh shit… [

Aaron Burr
] I’ll see you on the other side of the war [
Alexander Hamilton
] I’ll see you on the other side of the war
