WASHINGTON
Let me tell you what I wish I’d known
When I was young and dreamed of glory
You have no control

WASHINGTON AND COMPANY
Who lives
Who dies
Who tells your story?

BURR
President Jefferson

JEFFERSON
I’ll give him this: his financial system is a
Work of genius. I couldn’t undo it if I tried
And I tried

WASHINGTON AND COMPANY
Who lives
Who dies
Who tells your story?

BURR
President Madison

MADISON
He took our country from bankruptcy to prosperity
I hate to admit it, buthe doesn’t get enough credit
For all the credit he gave us

WASHINGTON AND COMPANY
Who lives
Who dies
Who tells your story?

ANGELICA
Every other founding father's story gets told
Every other founding father gets to grow old

BURR
But when you’re gone, who remembers your name?
Who keeps your flame?

BURR AND MEN
Who tells your story?
Who tells your story?

Who tells your story?
Your story?

The Lord, in his kindness
He gives me what you always wanted

You could have done so much more if you only had...

Will they tell our story?

Who lives, who dies...

COMPANY
Time…

Time...

FULL COMPANY
