The Schuyler Sisters

Lin-Manuel Miranda


There's nothing rich folks love more
Than going downtown and slummin' it with the poor
They pull up in their carriages and gawk
At the students in the common

Just to watch them talk
Take Philip Schuyler, the man is loaded
Uh-oh, but little does he know that his daughters
Peggy, Angelica, Eliza
Sneak into the city just to watch all the guys at

Work, work
Angelica
Work, work
Eliza
And Peggy
The Schuyler sisters
Angelica! Peggy! Eliza! Work

Daddy said to be home by sundown
Daddy doesn't need to know
Daddy said not to go downtown
Like I said, you're free to go
But–look around, look around
The revolution's happening in New York (New York)

Angelica! Work!

It's bad enough daddy wants to go to war
People shouting in the square
It's bad enough there'll be violence on our shore
New ideas in the air
Look around, look around
Angelica, remind me what we're looking for
She's lookin' for me!

Eliza, I'm lookin' for a mind at work (work, work)
I'm lookin for a mind at work (work, work)
I'm lookin for a mind at work (work, work)
Whooa, whooa (work!)

Wooh! There's nothin' like summer in the city
Someone in a rush next to someone lookin' pretty
Excuse me, miss, I know it's not funny
But your perfume smells like your daddy's got money
Why you slummin' in the city in your fancy heels
You searchin for an urchin who can give you ideals?
Burr, you disgust me
Ah, so you've discussed me
I'm a trust fund, baby, you can trust me!

I've been reading Common Sense by Thomas Paine
So men say that I'm intense or I'm insane
You want a revolution? I want a revelation
So listen to my declaration
We hold these truths to be self-evident
That all men are created equal
And when I meet Thomas Jefferson
I'm 'a compel him to include women in the sequel (work)

Look around, look around at how
Lucky we are to be alive right now
Look around, look around at how
Lucky we are to be alive right now
History is happening in Manhattan and we
Just happen to be in the greatest city in the world
In the greatest city in the world

Cuz I've been reading Common Sense
By Thomas Paine (look around, look around)
So men say that I'm intense or I'm insane
(The revolution's happening in New York)
You want a revolution? I want a revelation
So listen to my declaration
We hold these truths to be self evident

That all men are created equal
Look around, Look around
At how lucky we are to be alive right now
History is happening in Manhattan and we just
Happen to be
In the greatest city in the world
In the greatest city in the world

Work, work
Angelica (work, work)
Eliza! (work, work) And Peggy
The Schuyler sisters (work, work)
We're looking for a mind at
Work, work! Hey
Work, work! Hey
Work, work! Whoa! Hey! Hey
Work, work! Hey! Hey! Hey
In the greatest Work, work
In the greatest city in the
World
In the greatest city in the world
