Say No To This from Hamilton (by Lin-Manuel Miranda)

F#m

[BURR]

D7                                       F#m D7
There’s nothing like summer in the city
                                                   F#m D7
Someone under stress meets someone looking pretty
                                             Faug
There’s trouble in the air, you can smell it

And Alexander’s by himself. I’ll let him tell it


[HAMILTON]

           A
I hadn’t slept in a week

I was weak, I was awake
          Aaug
You never seen a bastard orphan

More in need of a break
F#m/A
Longing for Angelica

Missing my wife
             A7
That’s when Miss Maria Reynolds walked into my life, she said:


[MARIA]

A
I know you are a man of honor
Aaug
I’m so sorry to bother you at home
      F#m/A                        A7
But I don’t know where to go, and I came here all alone…


[HAMILTON]

She said:


[MARIA]

A
My husband’s doin’ me wrong
   Aaug 
Beatin’ me, cheatin’ me, mistreatin’ me...
F#m/A
Suddenly he’s up and gone
A7
I don’t have the means to go on


[HAMILTON]

      F#m                                                D7
So I offered her a loan, I offered to walk her home, she said


[MARIA]

You’re too kind, sir


[HAMILTON]

            F#m
I gave her thirty bucks that I had socked away
                    D7
She lived a block away, she said:

[MARIA]

This one’s mine, sir


[HAMILTON]

        F#m
Then I said, “well, I should head back home,”
                     D7
She turned red, she led me to her bed

Let her legs spread and said:


[MARIA]

Faug
Stay?


[HAMILTON]

Hey…


[MARIA]

Hey…


[HAMILTON]

That’s when I began to pray:
    A
Lord, show me how to

Say no to this
Aaug
I don’t know how to

Say no to this
   F#m/A
But my God, she looks so helpless
    A7
And her body’s saying, “hell, yes”


[MARIA]

A
Whoa...


[HAMILTON]

Nooo, show me how to


[HAMILTON/ENSEMBLE]

Say no to this


[HAMILTON]

Aaug
I don’t know how to


[HAMILTON/ENSEMBLE]

Say no to this


[HAMILTON]

F#m/A
In my mind, I’m tryin’ to go


(ENSEMBLE)

Go! Go! Go!


[HAMILTON]

      A7                          D
Then her mouth is on mine, and I don’t say…


[ENSEMBLE]

A
No! No!

Say no to this!
Aaug
No! No!

Say no to this!
F#m/A
No! No!

Say no to this!
A7
No! No!

Say no to this!


[HAMILTON]

A
I wish I could say that was the last time
Aaug
I said that last time. It became a pastime
F#m/A
A month into this endeavor I received a letter
A7
From a Mr. James Reynolds, even better, it said:


[JAMES]

A5*
Dear Sir, I hope this letter finds you in good health

And in a prosperous enough position to put wealth

In the pockets of people like me: down on their luck

You see, that was my wife who you decided to


[HAMILTON]

Fuuuu—


[JAMES]

Uh-oh! You made the wrong sucker a cuckold

So time to pay the piper for the pants you unbuckled

And hey, you can keep seein’ my whore wife

If the price is right: if not I’m telling your wife


[HAMILTON]

  F#m
I hid the letter and I raced to her place
                                   D7
Screamed “How could you?!” in her face

She said:


[MARIA]

No, sir!


[HAMILTON]

      F#m
Half dressed, apologetic. A mess, she looked
              D7
Pathetic, she cried:


[MARIA]

Please don’t go, sir!


[HAMILTON]

       F#m
So was your whole story a setup?


[MARIA]

I don’t know about any letter!


[HAMILTON]

      E/F#
Stop crying Goddamnit, get up!


[MARIA]

   E
I didn’t know any better


[HAMILTON]

       D
I am ruined...


[MARIA]                            / [HAMILTON]
                                
Please don’t leave me with him     / I am 
  E  D
helpless                           / helpless, how could I do
                                         
Just give him what he wants        / this?
              E   D
and you can have me
                                   / I don't want you
Whatever you want,                 / I don't want you


[MARIA]  
                          
        Bbm
If you pay                         / I don't...
         Bb   B
You can stay
                                    
[HAMILTON]

B
Lord, show me how to               / [ENSEMBLE]

Say no to this                     / Say no to this!
Baug
I don't know how to

Say no to this
Abm/B
But the situation's helpless       / Helpless
B7
And her body's screaming

Hell yes                           / Whoa!            
B                                   
No, show me how to

Say no to this                     / Say no to this!
Baug
How can I

Say no to this?                    / Say no to this!
Abm/B 
There is nowhere I 

can go                             / Go go go
B7
When her body's on
           E
mine I do not say...
     

[ENSEMBLE]        / [HAMILTON/MARIA]
B
No!
                  / Yes!
