What'd I Miss

Seventeen. Se- se- seventeen...
Se- se- seventeen...
1789
How does the bastard orphan
Immigrant decorated war vet
Unite the colonies through more debt?
Fight the other founding fathers `til he has to forfeit?
Have it all, lose it all
You ready for more yet?
Treasury Secretary. Washington`s the President
Ev`ry American experiment sets a precedent
Not so fast. Someone came along to resist him
Pissed him off until we had a two-party system

You haven`t met him yet, you haven`t had the chance
`Cause he`s been kickin` ass as the ambassador to France
But someone`s gotta keep the American promise
You simply must meet Thomas. Thomas!

Thomas Jefferson`s coming home!
Thomas Jefferson`s coming home!
Thomas Jefferson`s coming home!
Thomas Jefferson`s coming home!
Thomas Jefferson`s coming home
Lord, he`s been off in Paris for so long!

Aaa-ooo!
Aaa-ooo!

France is following us to revolution
There is no more status quo
But the sun comes up and the world still spins

(Aaa-ooo!)

I helped Lafayette draft a declaration
Then I said, `I gotta go
I gotta be in Monticello.`
Now the work at home begins

(Aaa-ooo!)

So what`d I miss?
What`d I miss?
Virginia, my home sweet home, I wanna give you a kiss
I`ve been in Paris meeting lots of different ladies
I guess I basic`lly missed the late eighties
I traveled the wide, wide world and came back to this

(Aaa-ooo!)

There`s a letter on my desk from the President
Haven`t even put my bags down yet
Sally be a lamb, darlin`, won`t cha open it?
It says the President`s assembling a cabinet
And that I am to be the Secretary of State, great!
And that I`m already Senate-approved
I just got home and now I`m headed up to New York

(Headin` to New York!)
(Headin` to New York!)

Lookin` at the rolling fields
I can`t believe that we are free
Ready to face
Whatever`s awaiting
Me in N.Y.C.

But who`s waitin` for me when I step in the place?
My friend James Madison, red in the face
He grabs my arm and I respond
"What`s goin` on?" (Aaa-ooo!)

Thomas, we are engaged in a battle for our nation`s very soul
Can you get us out of the mess we`re in?

(Aaa-ooo!)

Hamilton`s new financial plan is nothing less
Than government control
I`ve been fighting for the South alone
Where have you been?

Uh... France

(Aaa-ooo!)

We have to win

What`d I miss? (What, what, what`d I miss?)

What`d I miss? (I`ve come home to this)

Headfirst into a political abyss!

(Headfirst into the abyss)

I have my first cabinet meeting today (chicka-pow!)

I guess I better think of something to say
I`m already on my way
Let`s get to the bottom of this

(What did I miss?)
(Aaa-ooo!)

Mr. Jefferson, welcome home

Mr. Jefferson? Alexander Hamilton

Mr. Jefferson, welcome home

Mr. Jefferson, welcome home
Sir, you`ve been off in Paris for so long!

So what did I miss?
