Hamilton the Musical - We Know Lyrics

"We Know" is a song from the Broadway musical Hamilton performed by Leslie Odom Jr. (Burr), Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton), Daveed Diggs (Jefferson), Okieriete Onaodowan (Madison).

HAMILTON:
Mr. Vice President
Mr. Madison
Senator Burr
What is this?

JEFFERSON:
We have the check stubs.
From separate accounts…

MADISON:
Almost a thousand dollars,
paid in different amounts…

BURR:
To a Mr. James Reynolds way back in
Seventeen ninety-one

HAMILTON:
Is that what you have? Are you done?

MADISON:
You are uniquely situated by virtue of your position

JEFFERSON:
Though ‘virtue’ is not a word I’d apply to this situation

MADISON:
To seek financial gain, to stray from your sacred mission

JEFFERSON:
And the evidence suggests you’ve engaged in speculation

BURR:
An immigrant embezzling our government funds

JEFFERSON/MADISON:
I can almost see the headline,
your career is done

BURR:
I hope you saved some money for your daughter and sons

BURR/JEFFERSON/MADISON:
Ya best g'wan run back where ya come from!

HAMILTON:
Ha! You don’t even know what you’re asking me to confess

JEFFERSON/MADISON/BURR:
Confess

HAMILTON:
You got nothing.
I don’t have to tell you anything at all
Unless

JEFFERSON/MADISON/BURR:
Unless

HAMILTON:
If I can prove that I never broke the law
Do you promise not to tell another soul what you saw?

BURR:
No one else was in the room where it happened

HAMILTON:
Is that a yes?

JEFFERSON/MADISON/BURR:
Um, yes

BURR:
“Dear Sir, I hope this letter finds you in good health
And in a prosperous enough position to put wealth
In the pockets of people like me: down on their luck
You see, it was my wife who you decided to”

JEFFERSON:
Whaaaat—

HAMILTON:
She courted me
Escorted me to bed and when she had me in a corner
That’s when Reynolds extorted me
For a sordid fee
I paid him quarterly
I may have mortally wounded my prospects
But my papers are orderly!
As you can see I kept a record of every check in my checkered
History. Check it again against your list n’ see consistency
I never spent a cent that wasn’t mine
You sent the dogs after my scent, that’s fine
Yes, I have reasons for shame
But I have not committed treason and sullied my good name
As you can see I have done nothing to provoke legal action
Are my answers to your satisfaction?

JEFFERSON:
My God

MADISON:
Gentlemen, let’s go

HAMILTON:
So?

JEFFERSON AND MADISON:
The people won't know what we know

HAMILTON:
Burr!
How do I know you won’t use this against me
The next time we go toe to toe?

BURR:
Alexander, rumors only grow. And we both
Know what we know
