The Adams Administration lyrics

[Lin-Manuel Miranda, Okieriete Onaodowan, Daveed Diggs & Leslie Odom Jr.]

[BURR]
How does Hamilton the short-tempered
Protean creator of the Coast Guard
Founder of the New York Post
Ardently abuse his cab’net post
Destroy his reputation?
Welcome, folks, to

[BURR/COMPANY]
The Adams administration!

[BURR]
Jefferson’s the runner-up, which makes him the Vice President

[JEFFERSON]
Washington can’t help you now, no more mister nice President

[BURR]
Adams fires Hamilton
Privately calls him “creole bastard” in his taunts

[JEFFERSON]
Say what?!

[BURR]
Hamilton publishes his response

[HAMILTON]
Sit down, John, you fat mother—[BLEEP]

[BURR]
Hamilton is out of control

[MADISON]
This is great! He’s out of power. He holds no office. And he just destroyed President John Adams, the only other significant member of his party

[JEFFERSON]
Hamilton’s a host unto himself. As long as he can hold a pen, he’s a threat. Let’s let him know what we know.
