We The Kings - The Story Of Tonight Lyrics




I may not live to see our glory
But I will gladly join the fight
And when our children tell our story
They'll tell the story of tonight

Let's have another round tonight
Let's have another round tonight
Let's have another round tonight

Raise our glass to freedom
Something they can never take away
No matter what they tell you
Raise our glass to the four of us
Tomorrow there'll be more of us
Telling the story of tonight
The story of tonight

I may not live to see our glory
But I will gladly join the fight
And when our children tell our story
They'll tell the story of tonight

Let's have another round tonight
Let's have another round tonight
Let's have another round tonight

Raise our glass to freedom
Something they can never take away
No matter what they tell you
Raise our glass to the four of us
Tomorrow there'll be more of us
Telling the story of tonight
The story of tonight

Let's have another round tonight
Let's have another round tonight
Let's have another round tonight

Raise our glass to freedom
Something they can never take away
No matter what they tell you
Raise our glass to the four of us
Tomorrow there'll be more of us
Telling the story of tonight
The story of tonight

Raise our glass to freedom
They'll tell the story of tonight
Raise our glass to freedom
They'll tell the story of tonight
Raise our glass to freedom
They'll tell the story of tonight
Telling the story of tonight
Let's have another round tonight
The story of tonight

  1. Astrid Kapp

    I love the tributes to this amazing musical, the greatest compliment is imitation, right?!

  2. Hai Bye

    Lisa kamal.bring me here , malaysia !!!

  3. Victoria Irizarry

    This is like the
    Cancer: My Chemical Romance
    Cancer:Twenty One Pilots
    Of Hamilton

  4. Victoria Irizarry

    When you’re in your emo phase but your friends want you to go back to your Hamilton phase

    Me: No thank you I’ll just listen to this

  5. Koshi Komeji

    This song was played during my brother's Highschool graduation and I literally screeched during the whole thing because *its a hamilton song and i couldn't help myself*

  6. Charles Vergara

    Who else is here after watching Charles' Instagram video of Allie showing their baby this music video

  7. Poriu The fool

    2019? lul

  8. Theory Fan

    I can definitely say no to this...

  9. kyle tiempo

    There's Seems To Be A Conflict Between The Cover And Original Song Of Story Of Tonight...

    Welp One Way To Solve This.

    *Pulls Out Two Guns* A Duel

  10. QuellyTheChickenNugget

    ... say no to this

  11. Emz Naps

    2019 and still love this song

  12. Billy Ha

    Well, someone at their label owed them a big favor because i can’t fathom how Lin would let this see the light of day. Wow.

  13. Billy Ha

    How was this even allowed.. How was this even allowed?

  14. Tishtash1

    Yass!! Hamilton is like the best

  15. Gianna Beatriz

    I imagine the modern day hamilsquad to sing this

  16. Zoe Velez

    I don't actually think this is a terrible cover.. I think it's different from the Hamilton original, but if covers are exactly the same then what's the point of doing it? Covers are supposed to be different from originals in my opinion.

  17. Yeetus Le Fetus

    I don't get how people think the Hamilton version was better, it was straight up trash lmao 😂

    Momo Kagirou

    At least, Hamilton is the original one. 😗

  18. Emma Smith

    I officially love you guys! Hamilton is one of my favorite musicals!

  19. BrinaFlautist

    I didn't expect to hear Hamilton when I was at my on campus college store, so that was nice, at least...

  20. Phillip Bates

    Did you still this from Hamilton cause if u did fuck you right now

  21. Kiwi Time

    this was on at Old Navy. i have a feeling they do not listen to the better version in Hamilham. don't get me wrong, it's good... but i like musical version more

  22. Kathy Conner

    Lord show me how to say yes to this, i cant, say yes to this

  23. Kathy Conner

    I both love and hate this cover. I love it because it exposes more people to hamilton. I hate it because it takes all emotion and purpose and meaning and love and care and passion, and emotion from the original. Also can i just say how much i hate how they turned a story about the likleyhood of death, the hope for your legacy and cause to live on, INTO FUCKING TEANS ENJOING THERE FREEDOM OF SUMMER

  24. amelia

    I like this, but I don’t- it also feels extremely strange considering that it sounds like a Disney Chanel cover and this cover and the music video completely takes away the meaning of the original song.

  25. Amirah Munday

    This song lacks the meaning and emotion from Hamilton.

  26. Jecooy

    Still one of my Favorite songs

  27. Alien_ Queen

    How could lin Manuel Miranda let this happen…

  28. JKXD

    NO. NO. NO!!

  29. Victor Cuellar

    This gives me chills *B U R R S

  30. PleaseSendHelp

    So like, I don't get why or how people don't like this. Many are saying in the cover the genuine feeling of the original song is lost, which I can see where you're coming from. But the thing is they didn't try to copy it, they put their own spin on in, which I find to be my favorite factor. I personally don't like many covers where people try to just repeat the original. I find it so much cooler to see people put their own twist into a song. For examples, I've seen many covers of this song and honestly this one is probably my favorite because it isn't attempting to be a carbon copy. If you only want something exactly like the original then I would just stick to the original cause if you have the mind set of something to be exactly like the original song then no matter what you'll find a problem with every cover and in the end will never be satisfied with others work.

  31. Rachelle

    Oops I like this one better than the original :x

  32. Amanda’s Sucky Vlogs

    Anyone who says WTK messed up the Hamilton version of this is wrong they totally rocked this cover

  33. Grace D.Leon

    Oh so this is Hamilton! Why isn't it in the name?

  34. unicorn lovesfamliy

    So nice 2018 july???

  35. ZachChronicles

    Quake quake shook quake quake

  36. David B

    I'm uncultured and have no idea where this is "originally" from but I love this song and the meaning and the rhythm and everything. It's such a feel good song

    Kiwi Time

    on its own it is good. but Hamilton's is SOOOOOO much better

  37. Joe Vargas

    I think they finally stopped playing this on my work radio station and thank god.

  38. Patrick Seo

    0:39 who is she guys?

  39. Danni Jordan

    MY FAVE BAND DID MY FAVE MUSICAL WHAT EVEN?!

  40. kiss and makeup

  41. Kaden Hornberger

    Way to ruin a beautiful song

  42. Gabrielle Elaine

    I agree we the Kings is a great band.



    but bItCh yoU fUcKed tHis oNe uP

  43. Tiara Smith

    Who else is listening to this song? cause i am

  44. Little Cacti Quirk

    Gfdi, I love them.

  45. Horrible Pineapple

    Boi where's the meaning of this song? Hamiltons had a lot of meaning and feeling..but this..its like your just making it a bit...less...

  46. hamilton Trash

    Welp now I love hamilton even more

  47. McNuggets

    Fuck you. No really, fuck you. You've taken one of my favorite song from hamilton and ruined it. You turned an awesome classical themed song into a shitty rock song. And i am aware a lot people love rock, but fuck, you stretched a 1:30 song to 3:40. Because of this, after you finish the original lyrics, you repeat "lets have another round tonight" over and over. Witch gets so annoying, it's insane. Fuck you can even hear the auto-tune in your voices. So fuck you.

  48. Sage In A Nutshell

    I didn't know this was a cover 😅

  49. Star Wolfs

    Got hamilton?

  50. Dark Elucidator

    Yo they were just playing this is American Furniture... I started screaming “their playing Hamilton!”




    I flipped so many tables
    Edit: the amount of auto tune in this song tho.... .-.

  51. MockingAsh Rouge

    It's a decent cover but the original broadway cast album is far better and holds more meaning

  52. space pidgeon

    either hamilton copied this or this copied hamilton but hamilton probs copied this

  53. Emily :3

    I was in Home Depot and they played this version and I jumped up and down fangirling because it was Hamilton

  54. naivehailey

    oH mY GOD THIS IS AMAZING I LOVE HAMILTON

  55. Matt Wormington

    Does...does lin know?

  56. Ali Stair

    I love this band sooooo much. Travis clark

  57. Bittersweet Burning

    Its sad that it almost has as many views as the original

  58. Bittersweet Burning

    This is so terrible omg

    liasaysh w

    Finnick Roberts
    I know right! I was listening to the radio and I saw We the kings-Thr story of tonight and I was like oh cool it has the same name as Hamilton (I didn't relize it was gonna be some shitty cover.) Then the lyrics start and I'm just like WHAT THE FU-

  59. doggy winter

    You guys were my favorite band back in 2015

    but
    guys
    stay in your lane?? this is Hamilton this is not your kinda song

    you can really tell the singer doesn't even care about this song tbh

    don't yell at me plEAse but
    just wanted to share my opinion thanks

  60. Egg Egg

    idk but I feel like they stole this from Hamilton...

  61. Kaylynn Fulks

    Never seen Hamilton so I can't really say they ruined the song because I think this cover is really good tbh

  62. Wet Sockz

    How dare you this is an insult to Hamilton.

  63. Jeremy Levannier

    In my opinion, this cover completely ruins the song. This song is about a group of men meeting in a room committing treason to attempt to build a new nation. It is not a song about a guy trying to impress a girl.

  64. Rare321 Gaming

    saw this when i was searching for story of tonight lyrics

  65. luca

    we need a frenchman

  66. daniel renz banaag

    Well if it isn't Aaron Burr. Sir!

  70. WTE Updated

  72. Aimee Johnson

    thank you inspired me and my family I need to hear more of you THANK YOU so much

  73. Wolfy Draws! uwu

    they ruined iiiiit ;w;

  74. 2amrain

    So im not one for this version or the music video, and honestly I thought that the style you put it in didn't really fit but thats just me

  75. Irongirltoni

    I thought a story of tonight remix would be horrible




    I was wrong
    This isn't bad at all
    I like it actually
    I love it actually
    I like the original more, but they did a good job modernizing it

  76. macy ledbrooke

    ayhfgoqegtrfuwegufgusogfus I just realised this is in Hamilton the musical just not as up beat

  77. Jadyn TM

    Huehueheu :) :3 HAMILTON

  78. Vincent Sevilla

    just a ripp off of Hamilton

  79. Minty Waffle

    And I thought Laurens Interlude was sad...

  80. Ava Matos

    I heard this in Wendy's and I had seizure

  81. TheExtraChromosome

    the Hamilton will always be better

  82. LpsMatrix

    I heard this over the speaker at Sears on July 4th

  83. csnrgrs01

    Don't hate the band, but Jesus. They really missed the point. Thumbs down. I'm disappointed.

  84. DOCTOR BLEACH JR

    Thank you for doing a Hamilton cover. Also search up this song from Hamilton it's called "my shot"

  85. Jeremy Asuncion

    Sounds like Always by Blink - 182. Anyone agree? same chords used B F# G#m E in the chorus.

  86. Alexis Salazar

    disgusting

  87. Kaeru Bants

    This cover is such a feel good, fun version of the song. Like, I would gladly listen to this at the end of a movie or something, or rock out to it in a party/concert or something. 🤙

  88. Freddy Owen

    WOW!!! best thing ever

  89. Kara Phelan

    The song started playing in a bad bath and beyond and I was very concerned that I knew all the lyrics from Hamilton but never heard this song. Overall I was dancing around in bed bath and beyond like an idiot that was very confused.

  90. uwuxmultx

    OMG OMG OMG HAMILTON

  91. ephemeralphantasmagoria

    If this is the closest my work will get to playing songs from musicals I'll take it honestly. It's definitely not as good as the original by any means, but I don't think it's horrible or anything. It's literally them doing their interpretation of it, like cover artists do. I'm part of the Hamilfam too, but can we all just stop saying that this sucks and like?? Stop comparing it to the original?? Like wow guys I thought our fandom could appreciate music but apparently not???

  92. Lunar Virtue

    SO this is what I've been hearing.. Huh. good cover guys!

  93. Maddi Lennox

    THIS IS WONDERFUL

  94. NeedlesSTKane

    This is one of the most annoying fucking songs I've ever heard in my life. what ever happened to songs with a structure? all these current day beta male fucks sound like they're just winging it with the shitty fucking lyrics, half asses music and piss poor singers.

  95. CHF Media Group

    Hey check out my parody of this song it's really good. https://youtu.be/lvPek4UyQ40
