Lyrics What'd I Miss

Se- se- seventeen
Se- se- seventeen
Seventeen eighty-nine how does the bastard orphan
Immigrant decorated war vet unite the colonies through more debt?
Fight the other founding fathers 'till he has to forfeit?
Have it all lose it all you ready for more yet?
Treasury secretary
Washington's the president
Every American experiment sets a precedent
Not so fast someone came along to resist him
Pissed him off until we had a two-party system
You haven't met him yet you haven't had the chance
'Cos he's been kickin' ass as the ambassador to France
But someone's gotta keep the American promise
You simply must meet Thomas Thomas
Thomas Jefferson's coming home
Thomas Jefferson's coming home
Thomas Jefferson's coming home
Thomas Jefferson's coming home
Thomas Jefferson's coming home
Lord he's been off in Paris for so long
Ah ooh
Ah ooh
France is following us to revolution
There is no more status quo but the sun comes up
And the world still spins
I helped Lafayette
Ah ooh draft a declaration
Then I said I gotta go
I gotta be in Monticello
And now the work at home begins
Ah ooh
So what did I miss?
What did I miss?
Mmm, Virginia my home sweet home
I wanna give you a kiss, mwah mmm mmm
I've been in Paris meeting lots of different ladies
I guess I basically missed the late eighties
I traveled the wide wide world and came back to this
Ah ooh
There's a letter on my desk from the president
Haven't even put my bags down yet
Sally be a lamb darlin' won't ya open it?
It says the president's assembling a cabinet
And that I am to be the secretary of State, great
And that I'm already Senate-approved
I just got home and now
I'm headed up to New York
Headin' to New York
Headin' to New York
Lookin' at the rolling fields
I can't believe that we are free
Ready to face whatever's awaiting me in NYC
But who's waitin' for me when
I step in the place?
My friend James Madison red in the face
He grabs my arm and
I respond what's goin' on?
Ah ooh
Thomas we are engaged in a battle for our nation's very soul
Can you get us out of the mess we're in?
Ah ooh
Hamilton's new financial plan is nothing less
Than government control
I've been fighting for the South alone
Where have you been?
Ah ooh
We have to win
What did I miss?
What what what did I miss?
What did I miss?
Headfirst into a political abyss
I've come home to this?
Headfirst into the abyss
I have my first cabinet meeting today
I guess I better think of something to say
I'm already on my way let's get to the bottom of this
What did I miss?
Ah ah
Mister Jefferson welcome home
Mister Jefferson?
Alexander Hamilton
Mister Jefferson welcome home
Mister Jefferson welcome home
Sir you've been off in Paris for so long
So what did I miss?
