Program Notes

You'll Be Back has become one of the favorite stand-out songs in Hamilton. An irritated King George III holds nothing back in letting his feelings be known about the American War of Independence in a highly entertaining and satirically humorous way. The music is set in a laid-back light-rock style, with clever melodic nuances and richly conceived harmony, perfectly scored to support the brilliant lyrics.

You'll be back. Soon you'll see. You'll remember you belong to me. You'll be back. Time will tell. You'll remember that I served you well. Oceans rise, empires fall, we've seen each other through it all, and when push comes to shove, I will send a fully armed battalion to remind you of my love.

Performance Notes

With homogeneous instrument use, there will be crossed voices, so be sure that students adjust dynamics so the melody is always heard. In an effort to support completely flexible instrumentation, the following editorial accommodations are included to address potential Challenges.

Where appropriate, some parts may have multiple notes. However, they will not be marked div. When this occurs, assign the most appropriate notes for your students.

As an added option, you may wish to add electric or acoustic bass to the performance using the optional part included in the set.
