Satisfied Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Alright, alright
That's what I'm talkin' about
Now everyone give it up for the maid of honor
Angelica Schuyler
Verse 2
A toast to the groom (to the groom, to the groom, to the groom)
Verse 3
To the bride (to the bride, to the bride)
Verse 4
From your sister (Angelica, Angelica, Angelica)
Verse 5
Who is always by your side (by your side)
Verse 6
To your union (to the union, to the revolution)
Verse 7
And the hope that you provide (your provide, you provide)
Verse 8
May you always (always)
Verse 9
Be satisfied (rewind, rewind)
Verse 10
I remember that night, I just might (rewind)
I remember that night, I just might (rewind)
I remember that night, I remember that
Verse 11
I remember that night, I just might
Regret that night for the rest of my days
Verse 12
I remember those soldier boys
Tripping over themselves to win our praise
Verse 13
I remember that dreamlike candlelight
Like a dream that you can't quite place
Verse 14
But Alexander, I'll never forget the first
Time I saw your face
Verse 15
I have never been the same
Intelligent eyes in a hunger-pang frame
And when you said hi, I forgot my dang name
Set my heart aflame, ev'ry part aflame
This is not a game
Verse 16
You strike me as a woman who has never been satisfied
Verse 17
I'm sure I don't know what you mean
You forget yourself
Verse 18
You're like me
I'm never satisfied
Verse 19
Is that right?
Verse 20
I have never been satisfied
Verse 21
My name is Angelica Schuyler
Verse 22
Alexander Hamilton
Verse 23
Where's your fam'ly from?
Verse 24
Unimportant
There's a million things I haven't done but
Just you wait, just you wait
Verse 25
So so so
So this is what it feels like to match wits
With someone at your level! What the hell is the catch?
It's the feeling of freedom, of seein' the light
It's Ben Franklin with a key and a kite
You see it, right?
The conversation lasted two minutes, maybe three minutes
Ev'rything we said in total agreement,
It's a dream and it's a bit of a dance
A bit of a posture, it's a bit of a stance
He's a bit of a flirt, but I'm 'a give it a chance
I asked about his fam'ly, did you see his answer?
His hands started fidgeting, he looked askance?
He's penniless, he's flying by the seat of his pants
Verse 26
Handsome, boy, does he know it
Peach fuzz, and he can't even grow it
I wanna take him far away from this place
Then I turn and see my sister's face and she is
Verse 27
Helpless
Verse 28
And I know she is
Verse 29
Helpless
Verse 30
And her eyes are just
Verse 31
Helpless
Verse 32
And I realize
Verse 33
Three fundamental truths at the exact same time
Verse 34
Where are you taking me?
Verse 35
I'm about to change your life
Verse 36
Then by all means, lead the way
Verse 37
Number one
Verse 38
I'm a girl in a world in which
My only job is to marry rich
My father has no sons so I'm the one
Who has to social climb for one
So I'm the oldest and the wittiest and the gossip in
New York City is insidious
And Alexander is penniless
Ha
That doesn't mean I want him any less
Verse 39
Elizabeth Schuyler
It's a pleasure to meet you
Verse 40
Schuyler?
Verse 41
My sister
Verse 42
Number two
Verse 43
He's after me 'cause I'm a Schuyler sister
That elevates his status, I'd
Have to be naïve to set that aside
Maybe that is why I introduce him to Eliza
Now that's his bride
Nice going, Angelica, he was right
You will never be satisfied
Verse 44
Thank you for all your service
Verse 45
If it takes fighting a war for us to meet, it will have been worth it
Verse 46
I'll leave you to it
Verse 47
Number three
Verse 48
I know my sister like I know my own mind
You will never find anyone as trusting or as kind
If I tell her that I love him she'd be silently resigned
He'd be mine
She would say, I'm fine
She'd be lying
Verse 49
But when I fantasize at night
It's Alexander's eyes
As I romanticize what might
Have been if I hadn't sized him
Up so quickly
At least my dear Eliza's his wife
At least I keep his eyes in my life
Verse 50
To the groom (to the groom, to the groom, to the groom)
Verse 51
To the bride (to the bride, to the bride)
Verse 52
From your sister (Angelica, Angelica)
Verse 53
Who is always by your side
Verse 54
To your union
Verse 55
And the hope that you provide (you provide, you provide)
Verse 56
May you always (always)
Verse 57
Be satisfied (be satisfied)
Verse 58
And I know
Verse 59
She'll be happy as
Verse 60
His bride
And I know
Verse 61
He will never be satisfied
I will never be satisfied
