"Congratulations" from Off-Broadway run of Hamilton (cut from the final show, but it's online and fun to play)
*what I've been calling Bb/Ab is really just Ab C D played together

Alexander...
Bb/Ab
Congratulations.

Cm
You have invented a new kind of stupid
   Eb
A damage you can never undo kind of stupid
    Ebmaj7/G
An "open all the cages in the zoo" kind of stupid
Bb/Ab
Truly, you didn't think this through? kind of stupid

Cm7
  Let's review
                   Eb
You took a rumor a few, maybe two people knew 
                   Gm
and refuted it by sharing an affair of which no one has accused you
Bb/Ab
  I begged you to take a break, you refused to

Cm7
    So scared of what your enemies will do to you
Eb
You're the only enemy you ever seem to lose to
Ebmaj7/G
   You know why Jefferson can do what he wants
            Bb/Ab
He doesn't dignify schoolyard taunts with a response
        Cm7
So yeah, congratulations!

(HAMILTON)
Eb
Angelica...

(ANGELICA)
                           Ebmaj7/G
You've redefined your legacy, congratulations

(HAMILTON)
                            Bb/Ab
It was an act of political sacrifice!

(ANGELICA)
Bb/Ab      Ab
Sacrifice?
  Cm7
I languished in a loveless marriage in London
  Eb/Bb
I lived only to read your letters
  Abmaj7
I look at you and think God what have we done with our 
Eb/G
lives and what did it get us
      Fm9     
That doesn't wipe the tears or the years away
        Eb/G
but I'm back in the city and I'm here to stay
        Abmaj7
and you know what I'm here to do

(HAMILTON)
Abmaj7
Angelica...

(ANGELICA)
G
   I'm not here for you
Cm7                    Eb
I know my sister like I know my own mind
        Eb/G                   Ab11
You will never find anyone as trusting or as kind
      Cm7                                Ebsus2
And a million years ago she said to me "this one's mine"
   Ab
So I stood by 
G
Do you know why?
Cm7                        Eb/Bb       
I love my sister more than anything in this life
        Eb/G                     Abmaj7     G7
I will choose her happiness over mine every time
Cm7
Eliza--

(HAMILTON)

Eliza...

(ANGELICA)
         Eb/Bb
--is the best thing in our lives
   Abmaj7                                          Bb/Ab
So never lose sight of the fact that you have been blessed
Bb/Ab              G7
with the best wife

Cm7
Congratulations
Eb/Bb
     For the rest of your life
      Amaj7                         Bb/Ab
Every sacrifice you make is for my sister
             G7
Give her the best life
Cm
Congratulations
