Lyrics The Room Where It Happens

Ah, mister secretary
Mister Burr, sir
Did you hear the news about good old General Mercer?
No
You know Clermont Street?
Yeah
They renamed it after him
The Mercer legacy is secure
Sure
And all he had to do was die
That's a lot less work
We oughta give it a try
Ha
Now how're you gonna get your debt plan through?
I guess I'm gonna finally have to listen to you
Really?
Talk less, smile more
Ha ha
Do whatever it takes to get my plan on the congress floor
Now Madison and Jefferson are merciless
Well, hate the sin love the sinner
Hamilton
I'm sorry Burr
I've gotta go
But
Decisions are happening over dinner
Two virginians and an immigrant walk into a room diametrically opposed foes
They emerge with a compromise having opened doors that were previously closed
The immigrant emerges with unprecedented financial power
A system he can shape however he wants
The virginians emerge with the nation's capital
And here's the pièce de résistance
No one else was in the room where it happened the room where it happened the room where it happened
No one else was in the room where it happened the room where it happened the room where it happened
No one really knows how the game is played
The art of the trade how the sausage gets made
We just assume that it happens but no one else is in the room where it happens
Thomas claims
Alexander was on
Washington's doorstep one day in distress and disarray
Thomas claims
Alexander said I've nowhere else to turn and basicaly begged me to join the fray
Thomas claims
I approached Madison and said
I know you hate I'm but let's hear what he has to say
Thomas claims
Well, I arranged the meeting
I arranged the menu the venue, the seating
But no one else was in the room where it happened the room where it happened the room where it happened
No one else was in the room where it happened the room where it happened the room where it happened
No one really knows how the parties get to yes
The pieces that are sacrificed in every game of chess
We just assume that it happens but no one else is in the room where it happens
Meanwhile Madison is grappling with the fact that not every issue can be settled by committee
Congress is fighting over where to put the capital it isn't pretty
Then Jefferson approaches with a dinner and invite
And Madison responds with virginian insight
Maybe we can solve one problem with another
And win a victory for the southerners in other words
Ho ho, a quid pro quo
I suppose
Wouldn't you like to work a little closer to home?
Actually I would
Well I propose the Potomac
And you'll provide him his votes
Well we'll see how it goes
Let's go
No one else was in the room where it happened
The room where it happened
The room where it happened
No one else was in
The room where it happened
The room where it happened
The room where it happened
My God in God we trust
But we'll never really know what got discussed
Click-boom then it happened
And no one else was in the room where it happened
Alexander Hamilton
What did they say to you to get you to sell New York city down the river?
Alexander Hamilton
Did Washington know about the dinner?
Was there presidential pressure to deliver?
Alexander Hamilton
Or did you know even then it doesn't matter
Where you put the US capital?
'Cos we'll have the banks we're in the same spot
You got more than you gave
And I wanted what I got
When you got skin in the game you stay in the game
But you don't get a win unless you play in the game
Oh you get love for it
You get hate for it
You get nothing if you wait for it, wait for it, wait
God help and forgive me
I wanna build something that's gonna outlive me
What do you want Burr?
What do you want Burr?
If you stand for nothing Burr then what do you fall for?
I, I wanna be in the room where it happens the room where it happens
I wanna be in the room where it happens the room where it happens
I, I wanna be in the room where it happens
I, I wanna be in the room oh oh oh oh oh, oh
I wanna be
I wanna be
I've got to be
I've got to be, oh
In that big ol' room
The art of the compromise
Hold your nose and close your eyes
We want our leaders to save the day
But we don't get a say in what they trade away
We dream of a brand new start
But we dream in the dark for the most part
Dark as a tomb where it happens
I've got to be in the room
I've got to be
I've got to be
I've gotta be
In the room where it happens
I've got to be
I've got to be
I've got to be
In the room click-boom
