The election of 1800

Can we get back to politics?

Please?

Yo, ev’ry action has an 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

He’s very attractive in the North
New Yorkers like his chances

He’s not very forthcoming on any particular stances

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

And they say I’m a Francophile
At least they know I know where France is!

Thomas that’s the problem, see
They see Burr as a less extreme you

Ha!

You need to change course
A key endorsement might redeem you

Who did you have in mind?

Don’t laugh

Who is it?

You used to work on the same staff

Whaaaat

It might be nice, it might be nice
To get Hamilton on your side

It might be nice, it might be nice
To get Hamilton on your side

Talk less!

Smile more!

Don’t let ‘em know what you’re against or what you’re for!

Shake hands with him!

Charm her!

It’s eighteen hundred, ladies, tell your husbands: 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!

Dear Mr. Hamilton: your fellow Fed’ralists
Would 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?
We know it’s lose-lose
Jefferson or Burr?
But if you had to choose

Jefferson or Burr?
We know it’s lose-lose
Jefferson or Burr?
But if you had to choose

Dear Mr. Hamilton:
John Adams doesn’t stand a chance so who are you promoting?
But if you had to choose

Well, if it isn’t Aaron Burr. Sir!

Alexander!

You’ve created quite a stir, sir!

I’m going door to door!

You’re openly campaigning?

Sure!

That’s new

Honestly, it’s kind of draining

Burr

Sir!

Is there anything you wouldn’t do?

No. I’m chasing what I want
And you know what?

What?

I learned that from you

If you had to choose
If you had to choose

It’s a tie!

If you had to choose
If you had to choose

It’s up to the delegates!

If you had to choose
If you had to choose

It’s up to Hamilton!

If you had to choose
If you had to choose
If you had to
Choose
Choose
Choose!

Jefferson or Burr?
Choose
Choose
Choose!

Jefferson or Burr?
Choose
Choose
Choose!

Yo

Oh!

The people are asking to hear my voice

Oh!

For the country is facing a difficult choice

Oh!

And if you were to ask me who I’d promote

Oh!

Jefferson has my vote

Oh!

I have never agreed with Jefferson once

Oh!

We have fought on like seventy-five diff’rent fronts

Oh!

But when all is said and all is done
Jefferson has beliefs. Burr has none

Oooooooooooooh

Well, I’ll be damned
Well, I’ll be damned

Hamilton’s on your side

Well, I’ll be damned
Well, I’ll be damned

And?

You won in a landslide

Congrats on a race well-run
I did give you a fight

Uh-huh

I look forward to our partnership

Our partnership?

As your vice-President

Ha. Yeah, right
You hear this guy? Man openly campaigns against me
Talkin’ bout, I look forward to our partnership

It’s crazy that the guy who comes
In second gets to be Vice President

Yeah, you know what?
We can change that. You know why?

Why?

‘Cuz I’m the President
Hey, Burr, when you see Hamilton
Thank him for the endorsement
