Lin-Manuel Miranda - Congratulations Lyrics



[Alexander:]
Angelica

[Angelica:]
Alexander
Congratulations
You have invented a new kind of stupid
A 'damage you can never undo' kind of stupid
An 'open all the cages in the zoo' kind of stupid
'Truly, you didn't think this through?' kind of stupid
Let's review
You took a rumor a few maybe two people knew and refuted it by sharing an affair of which no one has accused you
I begged you to take a break, you refused to
So scared of what your enemies will do to you
You're the only enemy you ever seem to lose to
You know why Jefferson can do what he wants?
He doesn't dignify school-yard taunts with a response!
So yeah, congratulations!

[Alexander:]
Angelica

[Angelica:]
You've redefined your legacy
Congratulations

[Alexander:]
It was an act of political sacrifice!

[Angelica:]
Sacrifice?
I languished in a loveless marriage in London
I lived only to read your letters
I look at you and think 'God, what have we done with our lives and what did it get us?'
That doesn't wipe the tears or the years away
But I'm back in the city and I'm here to stay
And you know what I'm here to do?

[Alexander:]
Angelica

[Angelica:]
I'm not here for you
I know my sister like I know my own mind
You will never find anyone as trusting or as kind
And a million years ago she said to me 'this one's mine'
So I stood by
Do you know why?
I love my sister more than anything in this life
I will choose her happiness over mine every time
Eliza

[Alexander:]
Eliza

[Angelica:]
Is the best thing in our lives
So never lose sight of the fact that you have been blessed with the best wife
Congratulations
For the rest of your life
Every sacrifice you make is for my sister
Give her the best life
Congratulations

    Is Alex related to Lin? He looks kind of like him and it confuses me sometimes...

  73. KHTimeProtecter

    This should’ve been in the show. Even if it didn’t historically happen, the fact that Hamilton gets reamed out by Angelica really gives him a reality check on how his actions affect the people he loves and how he needs to do better.
