  • Whoa
    Whoa Ooh
    Ooh

    I was younger than you are now
    When I was given my first command
    I led my men into a massacre
    Witnessed their deaths firsthand
    Oh, I made every mistake
    I felt the shame rise in me
    And even now I lie awake
    Knowing history, history

    History has its eyes on me
    History, history, history, aha
    History has its eyes on me
    History, history, history
    Aha

    Let me tell you what I wish I'd known
    When I was young and dreamed of glory
    Don't nobody have control
    Who lives, who dies, who tells your story

    I know that we can win
    I know that greatness lies in you
    But remember from here on in
    That history, history

    History has its eyes on you
    History, history, history, oh ha
    History has its eyes on you
    History

    Whoa
    Whoa
    Whoa (whoa)

    History has its eyes on you
    History, history, history (whoa)
    Aha
    History has its eyes on you (ooh)
    History (aha)
    History has its eyes on you (ooh, ooh)
    History, history
    Ooh, yeah Writer/s: Lin-Manuel Miranda
