Текст песни Lin-Manuel Miranda - Hamilton - The Election Of 1800

Чайковский в рок-аранжировке! Очень необычно, послушай!
Hamilton - The Election Of 1800
Lin-Manuel Miranda
Song: The Election of 1800
Musical: Hamilton
Artist: Lin-Manuel Miranda
Tuning: standard, capo 1st

So I've tabbed this with a capo on 1st but if you want to play
it without a capo hit transpose +1

Note:  can be played as  if you're lazy like me

[ENSEMBLE]
  The Election of 1800
[JEFFERSON]
  Can we get back to politics? Please? Yo. 

Ev'ry action has it's equal opposite reaction
John Adams shat the bed - I love the guy, 

but he's in traction
  Poor Alexander Hamilton he is

...missing in action,
  So now I'm facing Aaron Burr? 
With his own faction

[MADISON]
He's very attractive in the north,
The Yorkers like his chances.

[JEFFERSON]
He's not very forthcoming on any particular stances

[MADISON]
Ask him a question: it glances off
He obfuscates, he dances,

[JEFFERSON]
  And they say I'm a Francophile!
At least they know I know where France is!

[MADISON]
Thomas, that's the problem, see,
They see burr as a less extreme you,
You need to change course; a key endorsement might redeem you

[JEFFERSON]
Who did you have in mind?
[MADISON]
  Don't laugh.
[JEFFERSON]
Who is it? 

[MADISON]
            N..
You used to work on the same staff                [JEFFERSON]
It might be nice, it might be nice,       //       whaaaaaaa
       To get Hamilton on your side,
[BOTH]
It might be nice, it might be nice,
To get Hamilton on your side!

[BURR]                             [ENSEMBLE]
Talk less!                         //  Burr!
Smile more!                       //   Burr!
Don't let them know what you're 
against or what you're for!       //  Burr!
Shake hands with him!            //  Burr!
Charm her!                       // Burr!
It's 1800, ladies tell your husbands;
Vote for Burr!                // vote for Burr!

-I don't like Adams -well he's gonna lose, that's just defeatist
-and Jefferson? -in love with France! -yeah he's so elitist!
-I like that Aaron Burr -I can't believe we're here with him!
-he seems approachable..? -like you could grab a beer with him

[ENSEMBLE]
Dear Mr Hamilton,
Your fellow Fed'ralists would               [HAMILTON]
like to know how you'll be voting  // it's quiet uptown
Dear Mr Hamilton,
John Adams doesn't stand a chance 
so who are you promoting?          // it's quiet uptown 
Jefferson or Burr? Jefferson or Burr?

We know it's lose - lose
Jefferson or Burr? Jefferson or Burr? 

But if ya had to choose,                    [ENSEMBLE]
Jefferson or Burr? Jefferson or Burr?  // dear Mr Hamilton

We know it's lose - lose             // John Adams doesn't stand a chance 
Jefferson or Burr? Jefferson or Burr? // so who are you promoting?

[ALL]
But if ya had to choose,

[HAMILTON]
Well, if it isn't Aaron Burr, sir

[BURR]
Alexander!

[HAMILTON]
You've created quite a stir, sir

[BURR] 
I'm going door to door!

[HAMILTON]
You're openly campaigning? (Sure!) That's new. 

[BURR]
Honestly it's kinda draining

[HAMILTON]
              (pluck string name)          
Burr- (Sir!) is there anything you wouldn't do?

[BURR]
          (also pluck)
No, I'm chasing what I want, and you know what?

[HAMILTON]
N..
What?

[BURR] 
N..
I learned that from you. 

[ENSEMBLE]
If you had to choose,
If you had to choose,

[MADISON]
N..
It's a tie!

[ENSEMBLE]
If you had to choose,
If you had to choose

[JEFFERSON]
N..
It's up to the delegates

[ENSEMBLE]
If you had to choose,
If you had to choose

[JEFF/MADS]
N..
It's up to Hamilton!

[ENSEMBLE]
If you had to choose,
Jefferson or Burr! (Jefferson or Burr!)
Choose! Choose! Choose!

[HAMILTON]                    [ENSEMBLE]
Yo.                     //       Oh!
The people are asking 
to hear my voice       //         Oh!
The country is facing 
a difficult choice      //        Oh!
And if you were to ask me who I'd promote...
Jefferson has my vote.    //       Oh!
I've never agreed with Jefferson once // oh!
We've fought on like 75 different fronts // oh!
But when all is said and all is done
                       N..
Jefferson has beliefs; Burr has none. // ooooh

[JEFFERSON/MADISON]
Well I'll be damned, well I'll be damned,
[MADISON]
Hamilton's on your side.

[JEFFERSON/MADISON/ENSEMBLE]
Well I'll be damned, well I'll be damned,

[MADISON]
And... you won in a landslide

[BURR]
Congrats on a race well run,  // [JEFFERSON]
I did give you a fight        //  uh-huh. 
I look forward to our partnership

[JEFFERSON]
Our partnership?

[BURR]
As your Vice President 

[JEFFERSON]
Hahaha yeah right! You hear dis guy?
Man openly campaigns against me, talkin' bout
"I look forward to our partnership"

[MADISON]
It is crazy that the guy who comes second
gets to be Vice President 

[JEFFERSON]
N..
Oo! You know what? We could change that!
N.
You know why? (Why?)
N.
'Cause I'm the president. 
N..
Burr, when you see Hamilton, thank him for the endorsement
