Kate So someone is going to type out the first line to Hamilton and the someone else is going to add the next line and so on and so forth until we have the whole musical.

Rules:

Everything must be in (parentheses) unless it is the song lyric.

Don't go twice in a row

Only one line per person at a time

Have fun!

Note: I stole the game idea from another group (https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...) I did not come up with this, but I thought it was a good idea. I created this group before becoming a member of that group and did not know that group existed before creating this one.

Kate How does a bastard orphan son of a whore and a Scotsman dropped in the middle of a forgotten spot in the Caribbean by providence impoverished in squalor grow up to be a hero and a scholar?

The ten dollar, founding father without a father got a lot farther by working a lot harder, by being a lot smarter, by being a self starter by 14, they placed him in charge of a trading charter.

Kate And everyday while slaves were being slaughtered and carted away he struggled and kept his guard up. Inside he was longing for something to be apart of; the brother was ready to steal borrow or barter

Gwyneth Bare (gwenirelandb) Then a hurricane came, and devastation reigned
Our man saw his future drip, dripping down the drain
Put a pencil to his temple, connected it to his brain
And he wrote his first refrain, a testament to his pain


message 6: by Kate (new)

Kate Well the word got around they said this kid is insane man
took up a collection just to send him to the mainland
Get your education don't forget from whence you came. And the world is gonna know your name.
What's ya name, man?


message 7: by Gwyneth (new)

Gwyneth Bare (gwenirelandb) Alexander Hamilton
My name is Alexander Hamilton
And there's a million things I haven't done
But just you wait, just you wait


message 8: by Kate (new)

Kate When he was 10, his father split
Full of it, debt-ridden
Two years later, see Alex and his mother, bed-ridden
Half-dead, sittin' in their own sick, the scent thick
And Alex got better but his mother went quick


Abby {On Hiatus For A Few Weeks Or Months} (yourclassicintrovertbooknerd) | 383 comments Moved in with a cousin, the cousin committed suicide.

Left him with nothin' but ruined pride, something new inside, a voice saying, "Alex you gotta fend for yourself."

He started retreating, reading every treatise on the shelf.


message 10: by Kate (new)

Kate There would've been nothin' left to do
For someone less astute
He would've been dead and destitute
Without a cent of restitution
Started workin', clerkin' for his late mother's landlord
Tradin' sugar cane and rum and other things he can't afford

Scamming for every book he can get his hands on

The bow of a ship headin for the new land
In New York you can be a new man


message 12: by Kate (new)

Kate Alexander Hamilton
We are waiting in the weeds for you
You could never back down
You never learned to take your time


Abby {On Hiatus For A Few Weeks Or Months} (yourclassicintrovertbooknerd) | 383 comments Alexander Hamilton, when America sings for you, will they know what you overcame? Will they know you re-wrote the game....


message 15: by Kate (new)

Kate The world will never be the same, oh
The ship is in the harbor now
See if you can spot him
Another immigrant comin' up from the bottom
His enemies destroyed his rep, America forgot him

I heard your name at Princeton. I was seeking an accelerated course of study when I got sort of out of sorts with a buddy of yours. I may have punched him. It’s a blur, sir. He handles the financials?

A colony that runs independently
We don’t want Britain shittin on us endlessly
Essentially they tax us relentlessly
And king George runs around on a spending spree


message 47: by Kate (new)

Kate He ain’t ever gonna set his descendants free
So there will be a revolution in this century
Enter me! (He says in parentheses)
Don’t be shocked when your hist’ry book mentions me
I will lay down my life if it sets us free
Eventually, you’ll see my ascendancy
