Who else would want Lin to actually write a “single list of thirty years of disagreements”? I can imagine Burr`s face when he receives a “disaggregated list of 30 years of disagreement.” The song is based on Hamilton and Burr`s correspondence before their duel. The song has its final name in the letters “Your Obdt. St” (a common expression used at the time in correspondence). The conclusion is a confrontation with the sound of the letters, which is reflected in both the music and the texts. [BURR] How does Hamilton support an arrogant immigrant, an orphaned bastard, a whore Somehow, Thomas Jefferson, his enemy A man he despises from the beginning, just to prevent me from winning? I want to be in the room where it happens [BURR & COMPANY] The space where it happens The space where it happens [BURR] You stopped me from doing it – [BURR & COMPANY] The room where it happens [BURR] Last time. Dear Alexander: I`m slow to get upset But I stick to the line, while I expect the impact of your life on mine, I look back where I failed And everywhere I looked, the only common thread was your disrespect Now you call me “amoral”, a “dangerous shame”, If you have something to say, Call a time and place Face to face, I have the honor of being your obedient servant A point Burr [HAMILTON] Mr. Vice President: I am not the reason why no one trusts you No one knows what you believe, I will not doubt my opinion I have always carried it on my sleeve Even if I said what you think, I told you to cite a more specific complaint Here is a detailed list of thirty years of disagreement [BURR] Sweet Jesus. A few more letters followed in which the exchange intensified to ask Burr to demand that Hamilton not return or deny any statement denigrating Burr`s honor over the past 15 years. .
