Lyrics Guns and Ships

How does a ragtag volunteer army in need of a shower
Somehow defeat a global superpower?
How do we emerge victorious from the quagmire?
Leave the battlefield waving
Betsy Ross' flag higher?
Yo turns out we have a secret weapon
An immigrant you know and love who's unafraid to step in
He's constantly confusin' confoundin' the British henchmen
Everyone give it up for
America's favorite fighting Frenchman
I'm taking this horse by the reins makin' redcoats redder with bloodstains
And I'm never gonna stop until I make 'em
Drop and burn 'em up and scatter their remains I'm
Watch me engagin' 'em escapin' 'em
Enragin' 'em I'm uh
I go to France for more funds
I come back with more guns
And ships and so the balance shifts
We rendez-vous with Rochambeau consolidate their gifts
We can end this war at Yorktown cut them off at sea but
For this to succeed there is someone else we need
I know
Sir he knows what to do in a trench
Ingenuitive and fluent in French ami
Sir you're gonna have to use him eventually
What's he gonna do on the bench I mean?
No one has more resilience or matches my practical tactical brilliance
You wanna fight for your land back?
I need my right hand man back
Ah huh get ya right hand man back
You know you gotta get ya right hand man back
I mean you gotta put some thought into the letter
But the sooner the better to get your right hand man back
Alexander Hamilton troops are waiting in the field for you
If you join us right now together we can turn the tide oh Alexander Hamilton
I have soldiers that will yield for you
If we manage to get this right
They'll surrender by early light
The world will never be
The same
