von Lin‐Manuel Miranda

Take a Break Songtext

Un, deux, trois, quatre, cinq, six, sept, huit, neuf

Un, deux, trois, quatre, cinq, six, sept, huit, neuf

Good

Un, deux, trois, quatre, cinq, six, sept, huit, neuf

Un, deux, trois, quatre, cinq, six, sept, huit, neuf

Sept, huit, neuf

Sept, huit, neuf

Sept, huit, neuf

Sept, huit, neuf

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine


My dearest, Angelica
Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
I trust you'll understand the reference to another Scottish tragedy
Without my having to name the play
They think me Macbeth, ambition is my folly
I'm a polymath, a pain in the ass, a massive pain
Madison is Banquo
Jefferson's Macduff
And Birnam Wood is Congress on its way to Dunsinane

And there you are an ocean away
Do ya have to live an ocean away?
Thoughts of you subside
Then I get another letter
And I cannot put the notion away.

Take a break

I am on my way

There's a little surprise before supper and it cannot wait

I'll be there in just a minute
Save my plate

Alexander
Okay, okay

Your son is nine years old today
He has something he'd like to say
He's been practicing all day
Philip take it away


Daddy, daddy, look:
My name is Philip
I am a poet
I wrote this poem just to show it
And I just turned nine
You can write rhymes but you can't write mine

What!

I practice French and play piano with my mother

Uh huh

I have a sister but I want a little brother

Okay!

My daddy is trying to start America's bank,
Un, deux, trois, quatre, CINQ!

Bravo!

Take a break

Hey, our kid is pretty great

Run away with us for the summer
Let's go upstate

Eliza, I've got so much on my plate

We can all go stay with my father
There's a lake I know

I know

In a nearby park

I'd love to go

You and I can go when the night gets dark

I will try to get away

My dearest Alexander, you must get through to Jefferson
Sit down with him and compromise
Don't stop 'til you agree
Your favorite older sister Angelica reminds you
There's someone in your corner all the way across the sea
In a letter I received from you two weeks ago
I noticed a comma in the middle of a phrase;
It changed the meaning, did you intend this?
One stroke and you've consumed my waking days
It says

"my dearest Angelica"

With a comma after dearest
You've written

"my dearest, Angelica"

Anyway, all this to say
I'm coming home this summer
At my sister's invitation
I'll be there with your family if you make your way upstate
I know you're very busy, I know your work's important
But I'm crossing the ocean and I just can't wait

You won't be an ocean away,
You'll only be a moment away
Alexander come downstairs, Angelica's arriving today
Angelica!
Eliza!
The Schuyler sisters
Alexander!
Hi.
It's good to see your face.
Angelica, tell this man John Adams spends the summer with his family
Angelica, tell my wife John Adams doesn't have a real job anyway.
You're not joining us? Wait...
I'm afraid I cannot join you upstate
Alexander I came all this way
She came all this way
All this way
Take a break
You know I have to get my plan through Congress
Run away with us for the summer
Let's go upstate.
I'll lose my job if we don't get this plan through Congress
We'll all go stay with our father
There's a lake I know
I know I'll miss your face
In a nearby park
Screw your courage to the sticking place
You and I can go
Eliza's right
Take a break
Take a break and get away
Run away with us for the summer
Let's go upstate
Where we can stay
We can all go stay with our father
If you take your time, you will make your mark
Look around, look around, at how lucky we are to be alive right now
Close your eyes and dream...
We can go
...when the night gets dark
Take a break
I have to get my plan through Congress
I can't stop till I get this plan through Congres
