Say No To This Lyrics by Original Broadway Cast

Burr

There’s nothing like summer in the city
Someone under stress meets someone looking pretty
There’s trouble in the air, you can smell it
And Alexander’s by himself. I’ll let him tell it

Hamilton

I hadn’t slept in a week
I was weak, I was awake
You never seen a bastard orphan
More in need of a break
Longing for Angelica
Missing my wife
That’s when Miss Maria Reynolds walked into my life, she said:

Maria

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

Hamilton

She said:

Maria

My husband’s doin’ me wrong
Beatin’ me, cheatin’ me, mistreatin’ me…
Suddenly he’s up and gone
I don’t have the means to go on

Hamilton

So I offered her a loan, I offered to walk her home, she said

Maria

You’re too kind, sir

Hamilton

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

Maria

This one’s mine, sir

Hamilton

Then I said, “Well, I should head back home,”
She turned red, she led me to her bed
Let her legs spread and said:

Maria

Stay?

Hamilton

Hey…

Maria

Hey…

Hamilton

That’s when I began to pray:
Lord, show me how to
Say no to this
I don’t know how to
Say no to this

But my God, she looks so helpless
And her body’s saying, “Hell, yes.”

Maria

Whoa…

Hamilton

No, show me how to

Hamilton/Ensemble

Say no to this

Hamilton

I don’t know how to

Hamilton/Ensemble

Say no to this

Hamilton

In my mind, I’m tryin’ to go

Ensemble

Go! Go! Go!

Hamilton

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

Ensemble

No! No!
Say no to this!
No! No!
Say no to this!
No! No!
Say no to this!
No! No!
Say no to this!

Hamilton

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

James

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

I hid the letter and I raced to her place
Screamed, “How could you?!” in her face
She said:

Maria

No, sir!

Hamilton

Half dressed, apologetic
A mess, she looked pathetic, she cried:

[Maria:]
Please don’t go, sir!

Hamilton

So was your whole story a setup?

Maria

I don’t know about any letter!

Hamilton

Stop crying
Goddammit, get up!

Maria

I didn’t know any better

Hamilton

I am ruined…

Maria (Hamilton)

Please don’t leave me with him helpless (I am helpless — how could I do this?)
Just give him what he wants and you can have me
(I don’t want you)
Whatever you want (I don’t want you)
If you pay (I don’t)
You can stay

Maria (Hamilton)

(Lord, show me how to say no to this) {Say no to this}
Tonight (I don’t know how to say no to this) {Say no to this}
(‘Cause the situation’s helpless)
Helpless
(And her body’s screaming, “Hell, yes.”)
Whoa!
(No, show me how to say no to this) {Say no to this}
How can you say no to this? (How can I say no to this?) {Say no to this}
(There is nowhere I can go)
{Go! Go! Go!}
(When her body’s on mine I do not say…) {No!}
(Yes) Yes {Say no to this! No!}
(Yes) Yes {Say no to this! No!}
(Yes) Ye-ye-yes {Say no to this! No!}
(Yes) Yes {Say no to this!}
(Say no to this…)
(I don’t say no to this) Don’t say no to this
(There is nowhere I can go)
{Go! Go! Go!}

James

So?

Hamilton

Nobody needs to know
