[Lin-Manuel Miranda, Original Broadway Cast of Hamilton]

[FULL COMPANY]
The Reynolds Pamphlet

[JEFFERSON/MADISON/ANGELICA]
Have you read this?

[BURR/JEFFERSON/MADISON]
Alexander Hamilton had a torrid affair
And he wrote it down right there

[MADISON]
Highlights!

[HAMILTON/JEFFERSON]
“The charge against me
Is a connection with one
James Reynolds!
For purposes of
Improper speculation
My real crime is an
Amorous connection with his wife
For a considerable time
With his knowing consent

[JAMES]
James Reynolds!

[BURR]
My real crime is an
Amorous connection with his wife

[MADISON/BURR/JEFFERSON]
Damn!

[HAMILTON/JEFFERSON/MADISON]
“I had frequent meetings with her
Most of them at my own house.”

[BURR]
At his own house!

[MADISON]
At his own house!

[DEEP VOICE]
Damn!

[HAMILTON/JEFFERSON]
“Mrs. Hamilton with our children being absent
On a visit to her father.”

[MADISON/BURR]
No…

[COMPANY]
Boooo!

Well, he’s never gon’ be President now

[MADISON/BURR]

[JEFFERSON]
That’s one less thing to worry about

That’s one less thing to worry about!

[ANGELICA]
I came as soon as I heard

[JEFFERSON]
What?!

[HAMILTON]
Angelica—

[COMPANY]
All the way from London?!
Damn

[HAMILTON]
Angelica, thank God
Someone who understands what I’m
Struggling here to do

[ANGELICA]
I’m not here for you

[ENSEMBLE]
Oooooh!

[ANGELICA]
I know my sister like I know my own mind
You will never find anyone as trusting or as kind
I love my sister more than anything in this life
I will choose her happiness over mine every time
Put what we had aside
I’m standing at her side
You could never be satisfied
God, I hope you’re satisfied

[JEFFERSON/MADISON/BURR]
Well, he’s never gon’ be President now

Well, he’s never gon’ be President now

Well, he’s never gon’ be President now

That’s one less thing to worry about.

[ENSEMBLE MEN]
Never gon’ be President now

Never gon’ be President now

Never gon’ be President now

That’s one less thing to worry about.

[JEFFERSON/MADISON]
Hey!
At least he was honest with our money!

Hey!
At least he was honest with our money!

[HAMILTON]
Hey!
At least I was honest with our money!

Hey!
At least he was honest with our money!

[ENSEMBLE WOMEN]
Well he’s never gon’ be President now

Well he’s never gon’ be President now

Well he’s never gon’ be President now

That’s one less thing to worry about.

Well he’s never gon’ be President now

Well he’s never gon’ be President now

Well he’s never gon’ be President now.

That’s one less thing to worry about!

His poor wife.
