There's nothing rich folks love more
Than going downtown and slummin' it with the poor
They pull up in their carriages and gawk
At the students in the common
Just to watch them talk
Take Philip Schuyler: the man is loaded
Uh-oh, but little does he know that
His daughters, Peggy, Angelica, Eliza
Sneak into the city just to watch all the guys at—


Work, work!


Angelica!


Work, work!


Eliza!


And Peggy!

Work, work!
The Schuyler sisters!


Angelica!


Peggy!


Eliza!


Work!


Daddy said to be home by sundown


Daddy doesn't need to know


Daddy said not to go downtown


Like I said, you're free to go

But—look around, look around, the
Revolution's happening in New York


New York


Angelica


Work!


It's bad enough daddy wants to go to war


People shouting in the square


It's bad enough there'll be violence on our shore


New ideas in the air


Look around, look around—

Angelica, remind me what we're looking for…


She's lookin' for me!


Eliza, I'm lookin' for a mind at work
I'm lookin' for a mind at work!
I'm lookin' for a mind at work!
Whooaaaaa!


Whooaaaaa!
Work!


Wooh! There's nothin' like summer in the city
Someone in a rush next to someone lookin' pretty
Excuse me, miss, I know it's not funny
But your perfume smells like your daddy's got money
Why you slummin' in the city in your fancy heels
You searchin for an urchin who can give you ideals?


Burr, you disgust me


Ah, so you've discussed me
I'm a trust fund, baby, you can trust me!


I've been reading Common Sense by Thomas Paine
So men say that I'm intense or I'm insane
You want a revolution? I want a revelation
So listen to my declaration:


“We hold these truths to be self-evident
That all men are created equal”


And when I meet Thomas Jefferson


Unh!


I'm ‘a compel him to include women in the sequel!


Work!


Look around, look around at how
Lucky we are to be alive right now!


Look around, look around at how
Lucky we are to be alive right now!


History is happening in Manhattan and we just happen to be
In the greatest city in the world!


In the greatest city in the world!


'Cause I've been reading Common Sense by Thomas Paine
Look around, look around
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!
So men say that I'm intense or I'm insane
The revolution's happening in—
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!


You want a revolution? I want a revelation
New York!
Look around, look around, the revolution's happening
In New York!
So listen to my declaration:


We hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal
Look around, look around
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Whoo!
At how lucky we are to be alive right now
Hey, hey, hey, hey



Look around, look around at how lucky we are to be alive right now!
History is happening in Manhattan and we just happen to be


In the greatest city in the world


In the greatest city—


In the greatest city in the world!


Work, work! Angelica


Work, work! Eliza
And Peggy!


Work, work!
The Schuyler sisters
Work, work
We're looking for a mind at work
Work, work
Work, work
Work, work


Work, work
Whoa!
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!
Work, work
In the greatest city in the world
In the greatest city in the world


In the greatest city in the world
