From the episode: Send in Stewie, Please

Voices: Seth MacFarlane

Hamilton: An American Musical is a rap musical about the life of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, with music, lyrics, and book by Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Stewie sings "Alexander Hamilton", the opening number in "Send in Stewie, Please", for Dr. Cecil Pritchfield to show that he deserves to be on Broadway while he attempts to stifle hiccups and snot bubbles while singing.


How does a bastard, orphan, son-hic of a whore and a

Scotsman, dropped in the middle of a forgotten

Spot in the Caribbean by providence, impoverished, in squalor

Grow up to be a hero and a hic-scholar?

The ten-dollar Founding Father without a father

Got a lot farther by working a lot harder

By being a lot smarter

By being a self-starter-hic

By fourteen, they placed him in charge of a trading charter

And every day while slaves were being slaughtered and carted

Away across the waves-hic, he struggled and kept his guard up

Inside, he was longing for something to be a part of

The brother was ready-hic to beg, steal, borrow, or barter

Then a hurricane came, and devastation reigned

Our man saw his future drip-hic, dripping down the drain

Put a pencil to his temple, connected it to his brain

And he wrote his first refrain, a testament to his pain

[Stewie takes a long pause to remember the rest of the song]

Well, the word got around, they said, “This kid is insane, man”

Took up a collection just to send him to the mainland-hic

“Get your education, don’t forget from whence you came, and

The world's gonna know your name. What’s your name, man?”

Alexander Hamilton-hic

My name is Alexander Hamilton

And there’s a million things I haven’t done

But just you wait, just you wait...-hic
