    oldukça gaz bir parça olan bu şarkı amerikan bağımsızlıkçılarını bastırmak için savaşan ingiltere'nin üstüne new york'a gönderdiği filo ile başlayan new york ve new jersey savaşlarını anlatmaktadır.

    ayrıca washington'un sahneye çıktığı ilk şarkıdır, şarkının başında washington içinde bulunduğu zor durumdan, imkansızlıklardan ve ordunun eksikliklerinden bahseder ve bir yardımcıya ihtiyacı olduğunu söyler, o sırada arkadaşları ve vatanseverlerden oluşan bir birlik ile savaşan hamilton'un başarıları ve özellikle ingiliz topçu bataryasından topları çalması ile dikkati çekmiştir. washington hamilton'a kendi yardımcısı olma teklifinde bulunur, teklifi kabul eden hamilton orduyu organize etmeye başlar...

    [hamılton]
    as a kid in the caribbean ı wished for a war
    ı knew that ı was poor
    ı knew it was the only way to—

    [hamılton/burr/mullıgan/laurens/lafayette]
    rise up!

    [hamılton]
    ıf they tell my story
    ı am either gonna die on the battlefield in glory or—

    [hamılton/burr/mullıgan/laurens/lafayette]
    rise up!

    [hamılton]
    ı will fight for this land
    but there’s only one man
    who can give us a command so we can—

    [hamılton/burr/mullıgan/laurens/lafayette]
    rise up!

    [hamılton]
    understand? ıt’s the only way to—

    [hamılton/burr/mullıgan/laurens/lafayette]
    rise up! rise up!

    [hamılton]
    here he comes!

    (george washington enters, heralded by soldiers.)

    [ensemble]
    here comes the general!

    [burr]
    ladies and gentlemen!

    [ensemble]
    here comes the general!

    [burr]
    the moment you’ve been waiting for!

    [ensemble]
    here comes the general!

    [burr]
    the pride of mount vernon!

    [ensemble]
    here comes the general!

    [burr]
    george washington!

    [washıngton]
    we are outgunned
    outmanned
    outnumbered
    outplanned
    we gotta make an all out stand
    ayo, ı’m gonna need a right-hand man.
    [ensemble]
    what?
    what?
    buck, buck, buck, buck, buck!

    buck, buck, buck, buck, buck!

    [washıngton]
    check it—
    can ı be real a second?
    for just a millisecond?
    let down my guard and tell the people how ı feel a second?
    now ı’m the model of a modern major general
    the venerated virginian veteran whose men are all
    lining up, to put me up on a pedestal
    writin’ letters to relatives
    embellishin’ my elegance and eloquence
    but the elephant is in the room
    the truth is in ya face when ya hear the british cannons go…

    [ensemble]
    boom!

    [washıngton]
    any hope of success is fleeting
    how can ı keep leading when the people ı’m
    leading keep retreating?
    we put a stop to the bleeding as the british take brooklyn
    knight takes rook, but look

    [washıngton]
    we are outgunned
    outmanned
    outnumbered
    outplanned
    we gotta make an all out stand
    ayo, ı’m gonna need a right-hand man
    ıncoming!
    [ensemble]
    what?
    what?
    buck, buck, buck, buck, buck!

    buck, buck, buck, buck, buck!

    [hamılton]
    they’re battering down the battery check the damages

    [mullıgan]
    rah!

    [hamılton]
    we gotta stop ‘em and rob ‘em of their advantages

    [mullıgan]
    rah!

    [hamılton]
    let’s take a stand with the stamina god has granted us
    hamilton won’t abandon ship
    yo, let’s steal their cannons—

    [mullıgan]
    shh-boom! [company]
    boom!

    [washıngton]
    goes the cannon, watch the blood and the shit spray and…

    [company]
    boom!

    [washıngton]
    goes the cannon, we’re abandonin’ kips bay and…

    [company]
    boom!

    [washıngton]
    there’s another ship and…

    [company]
    boom!

    [washıngton]
    we just lost the southern tip and…

    [company]
    boom!

    [washıngton]
    we gotta run to harlem quick, we can’t afford another slip
    guns and horses giddyup
    ı decide to divvy up
    my forces, they’re skittish as the british cut the city up
    this close to giving up, facing mad scrutiny
    ı scream in the face of this mass mutiny:
    are these the men with which ı am to defend america?
    we ride at midnight, manhattan in the distance
    ı cannot be everywhere at once, people
    ı’m in dire need of assistance…

    (washington's tent. burr enters.)

    [burr]
    your excellency, sir!

    [washıngton]
    who are you?

    [burr]
    aaron burr, sir?
    permission to state my case?

    [washıngton]
    as you were

    [burr]
    sir
    ı was a captain under general montgomery
    until he caught a bullet in the neck in quebec
    and well, in summary
    ı think that ı could be of some assistance
    ı admire how you keep firing on the british
    from a distance

    [washıngton]
    huh

    [burr]
    ı have some questions, a couple of suggestions on how to fight instead of fleeing west

    [washıngton]
    yes?

    [burr]
    well—

    [hamılton]
    your excellency, you wanted to see me?

    [washıngton]
    hamilton, come in, have you met burr?

    [hamılton]
    yes, sir

    [hamılton & burr]
    we keep meeting

    [burr]
    as ı was saying, sir, ı look forward to seeing your strategy play out

    [washıngton]
    burr?

    [burr]
    sir?

    [washıngton]
    close the door on your way out

    (burr exits.)

    [hamılton]
    have ı done something wrong, sir?

    [washıngton]
    on the contrary
    ı called you here because our odds are beyond scary
    your reputation precedes you, but ı have to laugh

    [hamılton]
    sir?

    [washıngton]
    hamilton, how come no one can get you on their staff?

    [hamılton]
    sir!

    [washıngton]
    don’t get me wrong, you’re a young man of great renown
    ı know you stole british cannons when we were still downtown
    nathaniel green and henry knox wanted to hire you…

    [hamılton]
    to be their secretary? ı don’t think so

    [washıngton]
    why’re you upset?

    [hamılton]
    ı’m not—

    [washıngton]
    ıt’s alright, you want to fight, you’ve got a hunger
    ı was just like you when ı was younger
    head full of fantasies of dyin’ like a martyr?

    [hamılton]
    yes

    [washıngton]
    dying is easy, young man. living is harder

    [hamılton]
    why are you telling me this?

    [washıngton]
    ı’m being honest
    ı’m working with a third of what our congress has promised
    we are a powder keg about to explode
    ı need someone like you to lighten the load. so?

    [company except hamılton]
    ı am not throwin’ away my shot!
    ı am not throwin’ away my shot!
    ayo, ı’m just like my country, ı’m young
    scrappy and hungry!

    [hamılton]
    ı am not throwing away my shot!

    [washıngton]
    son

    [washıngton & company]
    we are outgunned, outmanned!

    [hamılton]
    you need all the help you can get
    ı have some friends. laurens, mulligan
    marquis de lafayette, okay, what else?

    [washıngton & company]
    outnumbered, outplanned!

    [hamılton]
    we’ll need some spies on the inside
    some king’s men who might let some things slide

    [hamılton]
    ı’ll write to congress and tell ‘em we need supplies, you rally the guys,
    master the element of surprise
    ı’ll rise above my station, organize your information, ‘til we rise to the occasion of our new nation. sir! [company]
    boom!
