Lyrics to Satisfied from the Musical Hamilton by Lin-Manuel Miranda
Laurens:
Alright, alright. That’s what I’m talkin’ about!
Now everyone give it up for the maid of honor
Angelica Schuyler!

Angelica and Chorus:
A toast to the groom
To the bride
From your sister
Is always by your side
To your union (To the union) (to the revolution)
And the hope that you provide (Provide, you provide)
May you always (Always)
Be satisfied (Rewind)

Angelica:
I remember that night I just might regret that night for the rest of my days
I remember those soldier boys tripping over themselves to win our praise.
I remember that dreamlike candlelight like a dream that you can’t quite place.
But Alexander I’ll never forget the first time I saw your face.
I have never been the same.
Intelligent eyes in a hunger pain fame.
And when you said hi I forgot my dang name.
You set my heart aflame, every part aflame, this is not a game.

Hamilton:
You strike me as a woman who has ever been satisfied.

Angelica:
I’m sure I don’t know what you mean you forget yourself.

Hamilton:
You’re like me, I’m never satisfied.

Angelica:
Is that right?

Hamilton:
I have never been satisfied

Angelica:
My name is Angelica Schuyler.

Hamilton:
Alexander Hamilton

Angelica:
Where’s your family from?

Hamilton:
Unimportant. There’s a million things I haven’t done.
But just you wait, just you wait.

Angelica:
So so so so this is what it feels like to match wits with someone at your level.
What the heck is the catch?
It’s the feeling of freedom of seeing the light.
It’s Ben Franklin with the key and the kite.
You see it right?
The conversation lasted 2 minutes maybe 3 minutes,
Everything we said in total agreement
It’s a dream and it’s a bit of a dance
A bit of a posture, it’s a bit of a stance.
He’s a bit of a flirt but I’m-a give it a chance.
I asked about his family, did you see his answer?
His hands started fidgeting he looked he scanned.
He’s penniless, he’s flying by the seat of his pants.
Handsome, boy does he know it.
Peach fuzz, and he can’t even grow it.
I wanna take him far away from this place,
Then I turn to see my sister’s face and she is,

Eliza:
Helpless.

Angelica:
And I know she is,

Eliza:
Helpless

Angelica:
And her eyes are just,

Eliza:
Helpless

Angelica:
And I realize three fundamental truths at the exact same time.

Hamilton:
Where are you taking me?

Angelica:
I’m about to change your life

Hamilton:
Then by all means lead the way.

Angelica:
I’m a girl in a world in which my only job is to marry rich.
My father has no sons, so I’m the one who has to social climb for one.
So I’m the oldest and the wittiest and the gossip in New York City is insidious
And Alexander is penniless,
That doesn’t mean I want him any less.

Eliza:
Elizabeth Schuyler, it’s a pleasure to meet you.

Hamilton:
Schuyler?

Angelica:
My sister.
He’s after me cause I’m a Schuyler sister that elevates the status
I’d have to be naive to set that aside.
Maybe that is why I introduce him to Eliza now that’s his bride.
Nice going Angelica, he was right you will ever be satisfied.

Eliza:
Thank you for all your service.

Hamilton:
Well if takes fighting a war for us to meet, it will have well been worth it.

Angelica:
I’ll leave you to it
I know my sister like I know my own mind
You will never find anyone as trusting or as kind.
If I tell her that I love him, she’d be silently resign,
He’d be mine.
She would say I’m fine.
She’d be lying.

But when I fantasize at night it’s Alexander’s eyes.
As I romanticize what might have been,
If I hadn’t sized him up so quickly.
At least my dear Eliza’s his wife.
At least I keep his eyes in my life.

Angelica: Chorus:
To the groom (To the groom x3)
To the bride (To the Bride x3)
From your sister (Angelica x3)
Is always by your side (By your side x2)
To your union (To the union) (to the revolution)
And the hope that you provide (Provide, you provide)
May you always (Always)
Be satisfied (Satisfied x3)

Angelica:
And I know she’ll be happy as his bride.
And I know you will be satisfied.
I will never be satisfied.

Helpless from the Musical Hamilton

Helpless: Hamilton the Musical

Working with Lemons has recreated Helpless from the Broadway hit musical, Hamilton. This song is about the romance and wedding of Eliza Schuyler and Alexander Hamilton. Eliza’s sister, Angelica, introduces Hamilton to Eliza during a ball. They immediately start writing each other and Hamilton wastes no time in asking Eliza’s father Philip Schuyler for his permission to marry his daughter. Hamilton shares with Eliza his concerns about being an orphan with no wealth or station in life. Eliza dismisses his concerns and the song ends on the notes of their wedding.

Lyrics to Helpless from the Musical Hamilton by Lin-Manuel Miranda

Hey hey hey hey (ohh, I do I do I do I)
Dooo Hey (ohh, I do I do I do I)
Boy you got me
Helpless
Look into your eyes, and the sky’s the limit I’m helpless
Down for the count, and I’m drownin’ in ‘em

I have never been the type to try and grab the spotlight
We were at a revel with some rebels on a hot night
Laughin’ at my sister as she’s dazzling the room
Then you walked in and my heart went boom
Tryin’ to catch your eye from the side of the ballroom
Everybody’s dancin’ and the band’s top volume

Grind to the rhythm as we wine and dine

Grab my sister, and
Whisper, yo, this one’s mine

My sister made her way across the room to you (ooh)
And I got nervous, thinking what’s she gonna do? (ooh)
She grabbed you by the arm, I’m thinkin’ I’m through (ooh)
Then you look back at me and suddenly I’m (ooh)
Helpless

Oh, look at those eyes

Look into your eyes
And the sky’s the limit
I’m helpless
Down for the count
And I’m drownin’ in ‘em

I’m helpless

Look into your eyes
And the sky’s the limit I’m helpless

Down for the count
And I’m drownin’ in ‘em

Where are you taking me?
I’m about to change your life

Then by all means, lead the way

Elizabeth Schuyler
It’s a pleasure to meet you

Schuyler?

My sister

Thank you for all your service

If it takes fighting a war for us to meet, it will have been worth it

I’ll leave you to it

One week later

I’m writin’ a letter nightly
Now my life gets better, every letter that you write me
Laughin’ at my sister, ’cause she wants to form a harem

I’m just sayin’, if you really loved me, you would share him

Ha
Two weeks later
In the living room stressin’
My father’s stone-faced
While you’re asking for his blessin’
I’m dying inside, as
You wine
And dine
And I’m tryin’ not to cry
‘Cause there’s nothing that your mind can’t do
My father makes his way across the room
To you (ooh)
I panic for a second, thinking
We’re through (ooh)
But then he shakes your hand and says
Be true (ooh)
And you turn back to me, smiling, and I’m
Helpless

Look into your eyes
And the sky’s the
Limit I’m
Helpless
Down for the count
And I’m drownin’ in ‘em
I’m helpless

Look into your eyes
And the sky’s the
Limit I’m
Helpless
Down for the count
And I’m drownin’ in ’em

Eliza, I don’t have a dollar to my name
An acre of land, a troop to command, a dollop of fame
All I have’s my honor, a tolerance for pain
A couple of college credits and my top-notch brain
Insane, your family brings out a different side of me
Peggy confides in me, Angelica tried to take a bite of me
No stress, my love for you is never in doubt
We’ll get a little place in Harlem and we’ll figure it out
I’ve been livin’ without a family since I was a child
My father left, my mother died, I grew up buckwild
But I’ll never forget my mother’s face, that was real
And long as I’m alive, Eliza, girl I swear
You’ll never feel so

Eliza

I’ve never felt so

My life is gon’ be fine ’cause Eliza’s in it

I do I do I do I do

Down for the count
And I’m drownin’ in ‘em

In New York, you can be a new man
In New York, you can be a new man
In New York, you can be a new man

Helpless
