"What Comes Next?" is a song from the musical Hamilton. It features King George III singing how he misses owning the American colonies.

Most famously performed by Jonathan Groff in the original Broadway play.


They say
The price of my war's not a price that they are willing to pay
You cheat with the French
Now I'm fighting with France and with Spain
I'm so blue
I thought that we made an arrangement when you went away
You were mine to subdue
When even despite our estrangement
I've got a small query for you

What comes next?
You've been freed
Do you know how hard it is to lead?
You're on your own
Awesome, wow!
Do you have a clue what happens now?
Oceans rise
Empires fall
It's much harder when it's all your call
All alone, across the sea
When your people say they hate you
Don't come crawling back to me

Da da da dat da dat da da da ya da
Da da dat da da ya da!
You're on your own
