    The song where Burr realizes that the way he plays the game is no longer effective.

    Ah, Mister Secretary Mister Burr, sir Did'ya hear the news about good old General Mercer No You know Clermont Street Yeah They renamed it after him, the Mercer legacy is secure Sure And all he had to do was die That's a lot less work We oughta give it a try Ha Now how're you gonna get your debt plan through I guess I'm gonna fin'ly have to listen to you Really Talk less, smile more Ha Do whatever it takes to get my plan on the Congress floor Now, Madison and Jefferson are merciless Well, hate the sin, love the sinner Hamilton I'm sorry Burr, I've gotta go But Decisions are happening over dinner Two Virginians and an immigrant walk into a room Diametric'ly opposed, foes They emerge with a compromise, having opened doors that were Previously closed Bros The immigrant emerges with unprecedented financial power A system he can shape however he wants The Virginians emerge with the nation's capital And here's the pièce de résistance No one else was in The room where it happened The room where it happened The room where it happened No one else was in The room where it happened The room where it happened The room where it happened No one really knows how the game is played The art of the trade How the sausage gets made We just assume that it happens But no one else is in The room where it happens Thomas claims Alexander was on Washington's doorstep one day In distress 'n disarray Thomas claims Alexander said I've nowhere else to turn And basic'ly begged me to join the fray Thomas claims I approached Madison and said I know you hate 'im, but let's hear what he has to say Thomas claims Well, I arranged the meeting I arranged the menu, the venue, the seating But No one else was in The room where it happened The room where it happened The room where it happened No one else was in The room where it happened The room where it happened The room where it happened No one really knows how the Parties get to yes The pieces that are sacrificed in Ev'ry game of chess We just assume that it happens But no one else is in The room where it happens Meanwhile Madison is grappling with the fact that not ev'ry issue can be settled by committee Meanwhile Congress is fighting over where to put the capital It isn't pretty Then Jefferson approaches with a dinner and invite And Madison responds with Virginian insight Maybe we can solve one problem with another and win a victory for the Southerners, in other words Oh ho A quid pro quo I suppose Wouldn't you like to work a little closer to home Actually, I would Well, I propose the Potomac And you'll provide him his votes Well, we'll see how it goes Let's go No One else was in The room where it happened The room where it happened The room where it happened No one else was in The room where it happened The room where it happened The room where it happened My God In God we trust But we'll never really know what got discussed Click-boom then it happened And no one else was in the room where it happened Alexander Hamilton What did they say to you to get you to sell New York City down the river Alexander Hamilton Did Washington know about the dinner Was there Presidential pressure to deliver Alexander Hamilton Or did you know, even then, it doesn't matter Where you put the U.S. Capital 'Cause we'll have the banks We're in the same spot You got more than you gave And I wanted what I got When you got skin in the game, you stay in the game But you don't get a win unless you play in the game Oh, you get love for it, you get hate for it You get nothing if you Wait for it, wait for it, wait God help and forgive me I wanna build Something that's gonna Outlive me What do you want, Burr What do you want, Burr If you stand for nothing Burr, then what do you fall for I Wanna be in The room where it happens The room where it happens I Wanna be in The room where it happens The room where it happens I Wanna be In the room where it happens I I wanna be in the room Oh Oh I wanna be in The room where it happens The room where it happens The room where it happens I wanna be in the room Where it happens The room where it happens The room where it happen The art of the compromise Hold your nose and close your eyes We want our leaders to save the day But we don't get a say in what they trade away We dream of a brand new start But we dream in the dark for the most part Dark as a tomb where it happens I've got to be in The room (where it happens) I've got to be (the room where it happens) I've got to be (the room where it happens) Oh, I've got to be in The room where it happens I've got to be, I've gotta be, I've gotta be In the room Click boom

    The room where it happened is just a song about historians singing, "yeah, we have no clue what the fuck happened in there, we just assume that it happened, but i'm pretty sure they made a deal or some shit"

    I'm so thick headed I just realised that "two Virginians and an immigrant walk into a room" sounds like the buildup for a joke, because to Burr it is a joke. He doesn't believe that any of it took place.

    We can use this song as a test to see if someone’s a theatre kid, make it sound like you’re about to tell a joke and say, “okay, so 2 Virginians and an immigrant walk into a room” if they get it you know they’re prolly a theatre kid

    This is my favorite song, not only because it's straight fire, but also because the entire time I get an electro swing vibe, of even just a swing vibe, and that's my favorite genre. This musical is great

    This is honestly one of the most haunting songs in Hamilton. Between the lack of knowledge the audience has, Burr has, no one knows how it happened or what was discussed, and we never will. And this is happening all the time all around us we'll never know what exactly happens behind closed doors, we can't all be in the room where it happens, there will be parts of the story we're missing and always will be. And also, Burr finally deciding what he wants. "If you stand for nothing Burr, what'll you fall for?" And it echoes all around him, completely inescapable as he struggles to finally take a stand for something and to rise up and take what he wants. And when the story ends, it's Alexander that pushed him to be decisive, Alexander who inspired him to make a move for what he wanted, and Alexander that kept him from being in the room where it happens.

    This song is fantastic for several reasons, the two most prominent of which I shall outline here: 1. It perfectly outlines Burr's political ambition, his jealously of Hamilton's success, and his desire to be more involved in the nation he helped create. 2. It's a fucking BOP.

    In reality Alexander DID embezzle money and bribed Jeff and Madison to switch the narrative to a completely fabricated affair, Eliza was in on it, that’s why she “erased herself from the narrative” to wash her hands of the whole situation while still getting away with the money that Alexander pretended to pay to Reynolds. it’s enough money to bribe Jeff and mads to give him the bank but not the capital, keeps the public distracted with the affair. I know it’s stupid...to speculate about something 220 years ago
