Hamilton the Musical - The Adams Administration Lyrics

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

How does Hamilton,
The short-tempered, protean creator
Of the coast guard,
Founder of the New York Post
Ardently abuse his cabinet post
Destroy his reputation?
Welcome folks, to the Adam’s Admistration.
Jefferson’s the runner-up
Which makes him the vice-president,

Washington can’t help you now,
No more Mr. nice President

Adams fires Hamilton,
Privately calls him creole bastard in his taunts
(JEFFERSON: Say what?)
Hamilton publishes his response.

Sit down John,
You fat mother-fucker.

Hamilton’s out of control,

This is great:
He’s out of power,
He holds no office
And he just destroyed president John Adams
The only other significant member of his party

Hamilton is a host unto himself,
As long as he can hold a pen,
He’s a threat.
Let’s let him know what we know.
