Evita - Montage Lyrics

Broadway revival 2012
Evita the Musical - Montage Lyrics

She had her moments--she had some style
The best show in town was the crowd
Outside the Casa Rosada crying, "Eva Peron"
But that's all gone now--

Eva beware your ambition--

Screw the middle classes! I will never accept them and
They will never deny me anything again. My father's
Other family were middle class, and we were kept out of
Sight, hidden from view--

It seems crazy but you must believe
There's nothing calculated, nothing planned
Please forgive me if I seem naive
I would never want to force your hand
But please understand--

A new Argentina!
The chains of the masses untied!

A new Argentina!
The voice of the people cannot be and will not be
And must not be--

High flying, adored, so young, the instant queen, a
Rich beautiful thing of all the talents, a cross between a
Fantasy of the bedroom and a saint--

Santa Santa Evita
Madre de todos los ninos...

Sing you fools but you got it wrong
Enjoy your prayers because you haven't got long
Your queen is dead, your king is through
She's not coming back to you!

... de los tiranizados
De los descamisados
De los trabajadores
De la Argentina
