    Madonna Evita — Part 2 текст песни

    Evita — Part 2

    CHE (To EVA’S FIRST LOVER)

    Goodnight and thank you whoever

    She’s in every magazine, been photographed, seen

    She is known

    We don’t like to rush but your case has been packed

    If she’s missed anything

    You could give her a ring

    But she won’t always answer the phone

    EVA

    Oh but it’s sad when a love affair dies

    But we have pretended enough

    It’s best that we stop fooling ourselves

    CHE

    Which means………

    CHE and EVA

    There is no-one, no-one at all

    Never has been and never will be a lover

    Male or female

    Who hasn’t an eye on

    In fact they rely on

    Tricks they can try on

    Their partner

    They’re hoping their lover will help them or keep them

    Support them, promote them

    Don’t blame them

    You’re the same

    CHE

    Goodnight and thank you Emilio

    You’ve completed your task, what more can we ask Of you now?

    Please sign the book on your way out the door

    That will be all If she needs you she’ll call

    But I don’t think that’s likely somehow

    EVA

    Oh but it’s sad when a love affair dies

    But when we were hot we were hot

    I know you’ll look back on the good times we’ve shared

    CHE

    Which means……………

    CHE and EVA

    There is no-one, no-one at all

    Never has been and never will be a lover Male or female

    Who hasn’t an eye on

    In fact they rely on

    Tricks they can try on

    Their partner

    They’re hoping their lover will help them or keep them

    Support them, promote them

    Don’t blame her

    You’re the same

    EVA

    There is no soap, no soap like Zazz

    No detergent, lotion or oil with such power in the shower

    It’s the mother and father of luxury lather

    The talk of the bath

    The great ointment

    One little frolic

    With new Zazz carbolic

    Your scented

    You’ll be sent.

    CHE

    Goodnight and thank you SeГ±or JabГіn

    We are grateful you found her a spot on the sound radio

    We’ll think of you every time she’s on the air

    We’d love you to stay

    But you’d be in the way

    So do up your trousers and go

    EVA

    Oh but it’s sad when a love affair dies

    The decline into silence and doubt

    Our passion was just too intense to survive

    CHE

    Which means……………….

    (By now a fairly long line of EVA’s rejected LOVERS has formed)

    LOVERS

    This is a club I should never have joined

    Someone has made us look fools

    Argentine men call the sexual shots

    Someone has altered the rules

    EVA

    Fame on the wireless as far as it goes

    Is all very well, but every girl knows

    CHE

    She needs a man she can monopolize

    With fingers in dozens of different pies-

    LOVERS

    Oh but it’s sad when a love affair dies

    9. The Lady’s Got Potential

    CHE

    In June of 43 there was a military coup

    Behind it was a gang called the G.O.U.

    Who did not feel the need to be elected

    They had themselves a party at the point of a gun

    They were slightly to the right of Attila the Hun

    A bomb or two and very few objected

    Just one shell and governments fall like flies

    Ka-pow, Die

    They stumble and fall

    Bye bye

    Backs to the wall

    Aim high

    We’re having a ball

    The tank and bullet ruled as democracy dies

    The lady’s got potential

    She was setting her sights

    Of making it in movies

    With her name in lights

    The greatest social climber

    Since Cinderella

    Okay she couldn’t act

    But she had the right friends

    And we all know a career depends

    On knowing the right fella to be stellar.

    Just one shell and governments lose their nerve

    Ka-pow, Die

    They stumble and fall

    Bye, bye

    Backs to the wall

    Aim high

    We’re having a ball

    That’s how we get the government we deserve

    Now the man behind the president

    Calling the shots

    Involved so discreetly in a lot of their plots was Colonel Juan Peron would-be dictator

    He began in the army out in Italy so

    Saw Mussolini’s rise from the very front row

    I reckon he’d do likewise sooner or later

    Just one blast and the tear gas falls like rain

    Ka-pow, Die

    They haven’t a chance

    Bye bye

    The terrorists advance

    But one guy

    Doesn’t dirty his hands

    Peron was biding time out in the slow lane.

    Suddenly a earthquake hit the town of San Juan

    Ka-pow, Die

    They stumble and fall

    Bye bye

    Keep away from the wall

    But one guy

    Was having a ball

    The tragedy a golden chance for Peron

    He organized a concert with incredible flair

    He named off all the victims such a grand affair Politicians, actors, stars of every flavor

    It was January 22, 1944 A night to remember yeah that’s for sure

    For that’s the night that Peron first met Eva

    For that’s the night that Peron first met Eva.

    10. CHARITY CONCERT/THE ART OF THE POSSIBLE

    (Backstage at the charity concert. EVA by now a successful actress, and PERON, by now one of the most powerful men in the military government, are both present. EVA’s old friend MAGALDI is finishing his act on stage.

    MAGALDI

    On this night… On this night… On this night of a thousand stars Let me take you to heaven’s door Where the music of love’s guitars Plays for evermore!

    (MAGALDI comes off stage and runs into EVA)

    EVA

    Magaldi?

    MAGALDI

    Eva Duarte?

    EVA

    You’re act hasn’t changed much.

    MAGALDI

    Neither has yours.

    AUDIENCE:

    Peron, Peron, Peron.

    (MAGALDI leaves. The crowd begins to call for PERON. PERON pushes his way onto the stage.)

    PERON

    I stand here as a servant of the people.

    As we come together for a marvelous cause

    You’ve shown by your presence, your deeds, and applause

    What the people can do true power is your’s

    not the government unless it represents the people

    CHE

    One always picks the easy fight

    One praises fools

    One smothers light

    One shifts from left to right

    Politics the art of the possible

    11. I’d Be Surprisingly Good For You

    (PERON leaves the stage and finds himself face to face with EVA)

    EVA

    Colonel Peron?

    PERON

    Eva Duarte?

    EVA and PERON I’ve heard so much about you!

    I’m amazed for I’m only an actress (a soldier)

    Nothing to shout about (One of the thousands)

    Only a girl on the air (Defending the country he loves).

    EVA

    But when you act, the things you do affect us all.

    PERON

    But when you act, you take us away from the squalor of The real world—Are you here on your own?

    EVA

    Yes, Oh yes.

    PERON

    So am I—what a fortunate coincidence.

    Maybe you’re my reward for my efforts here tonight.

    EVA

    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

    I’d be good for you.

    I don’t always rush in like this

    Twenty seconds after saying hello

    Telling strangers I’m too good to miss

    If I’m wrong I hope you’ll tell me so

    But you really should know

    I’d be good for you

    I’d be surprisingly good for you.

    I won’t go on if I’m boring you

    But do you understand my point of view

    Do you like what you hear, what you see, and would you be

    Good for me too?

    I’m not talking of a hurried night

    A frantic tumble then a shy goodbye

    Creeping home before it gets too light

    That’s not the reason that I caught your eye

    Which has to imply

    I’d be good for you

    I’d be surprisingly good for you

    PERON

    Please go on—you enthrall me!

    I can understand you perfectly

    And I like what I hear, what I see, and knowing me

    I would be good for you too

    EVA

    I’m not talking of a hurried night

    A frantic tumble then a shy goodbye

    Creeping home before it gets too light

    That’s not the reason that I caught your eye

    Which has to imply

    I’d be good for you

    I’d be surprisingly good for you.

    (EVA and PERON arrive at PERON’s apartment. PERON’s 16 year-old MISTRESS is in bed.)

    12. HELLO AND GOODBYE

    EVA

    Hello and goodbye!

    I’ve just unemployed you

    You can go back to school—you had a good run

    I’m sure he enjoyed you

    Don’t act sad or surprised, let’s be friends, civilized

    Come on little one!

    Don’t sit there like a dummy!

    The day you knew would arrive is here—you’ll survive

    So move, funny face!

    I like your conversation—you’ve a catchy turn of phrase

    Your obviously going through some adolescent phase

    MISTRESS

    So what happens now?

    So what happens now?

    Where am I going to?

    CHE

    You’ll get by you always have before

    MISTRESS

    Where am I going to?

    EVA

    Don’t ask anymore

    13. PERON’S LATEST FLAME

    CHE

    At the watering-holes of the well-to-do

    I detect a resistance to…

    ARISTOCRATS

    Precisely!

    CHE

    …our heroine’s style

    ARISTOCRATS We’re glad you noticed

    CHE

    The shooting sticks of the upper class

    ARISTOCRATS

    Give her an inch…

    CHE

    Aren’t supporting a single ass

    That would rise for the girl

    ARISTOCRATS

    …she’ll take a mile

    Such a shame she wandered into our enclosure

    How unfortunate this person has forced us to be blunt

    No, we wouldn’t mind seeing her at Harrod’s

    But behind the jewelry counter—not in front

    CHE

    Could there be in our fighting corps A lack of enthusiasm for…

    ARMY

    Exactly!

    CHE

    …Peron’s latest flame?

    ARMY

    You said it brother

    CHE

    Should you wish to cause great distress

    In the tidiest officer’s mess

    Just mention her name

    ARMY

    That isn’t funny!

    Peron is a fool, breaking every taboo

    Installing the girl in the army H.Q.

    And she’s an actress! The last straw

    Her only good parts are between her thighs

    She should stare at the ceiling, not reach for the skies

    Or she could be his last whore

    The evidence suggests

    She has other interests

    If it’s her who’s using him

    He’s exceptionally dim

    Bitch!

    Dangerous Jade!

    ARISTOCRATS

    We have allowed ourselves to slip

    We have completely lost our grip

    We have declined to an all-time low

    Tarts have become the set to know

    EVA

    I’m only a radio star with just one weekly show

    But speaking as one of the people I want you to know

    We are tired of the decline of Argentina with no sign of

    A government able to give us the things we deserve

    ARMY

    It’s no crime for officers to do as they please

    As long as they’re discreet and keep clear of disease

    We ignore, we disregard

    But once they allow a bit on the side

    To move to the center where she’s not qualified

    We are forced be on our guard

    She should get into her head

    She should not get out of bed

    She should know that she’s not paid

    To be loud but to be laid

    Slut!

    Dangerous Jade!

    (EVA, the glamorous movie star, enters, flanked by HEAVIES.)

    CHE (dressed as a reporter)

    This has really been your year Miss Duarte

    Tell us where you go from here Miss Duarte

    Which are the roles that you yearn to play

    Whom did you sleep—dine with yesterday?

    EVA

    Acting is limiting the lines not mine

    That’s no help to the Argentine

    CHE

    Can we assume then that you’ll quit?

    Is this because of your involvement with Colonel Peron?

    HEAVIES

    Goodnight and thank you (They drag CHE away)

    ARMY

    She won’t be kept happy by her nights on the tiles

    She says it’s his body but she’s after his files

    So get back onto the street!

    She should get into her head

    She should not get out of bed

    She should know that she’s not paid

    To be loud but to be laid

    The evidence suggests

    She has other interests

    If it’s her who’s using him

    He’s exceptionally dim

    ARISTOCRATS

    Things have reached a pretty pass

    When someone pretty lower class

    Graceless and vulgar, uninspired

    Can be accepted and admired

    14. A NEW ARGENTINA

    PERON

    Dice are rolling, the knives are out

    Would be presidents are all around

    I don’t say they mean harm, but they’d each give an arm

    To see us six feet under ground

    EVA

    It doesn’t matter what those morons say

    Our nation’s leaders are a feeble crew

    There’s only twenty of them anyway

    What is twenty next to millions who

    Are looking to you?

    All you have to do is sit and wait

    Keeping out of everybody’s way

    We’ll—you’ll be handed power on a plate

    When the ones who matter have their say

    And with chaos installed

    You can reluctantly agree to be called

    PERON

    There again we could be foolish

    Not to quit while we’re ahead

    For distance lends enchantment

    And that is why

    All exiles are distinguished

    More important they’re not dead

    I could find job satisfaction In Paraguay

    EVA

    This is crazy defeatist talk

    Why commit political suicide?

    There’s no risk, there’s no call

    For any action at all

    When you have unions on your side

    MOB

    A new Argentina!

    The chains of the masses untied!

    A new Argentina!

    The voice of the people cannot be denied!

    EVA

    There is only one man who can lead any workers’ regime

    He lives for your problems, he shares your ideals and your dreams

    He supports you for he loves you, understands you,

    is one of you If not—how could he love me?

    MOB

    A new Argentina!

    The workers’ battle song!

    A new Argentina!

    The voice of the people rings out loud and long!

    EVA

    Now I am a worker I’ve suffered the way that you do

    I’ve been unemployed and I’ve starved and I’ve hated it too

    But I found my salvation in Peron—may the nation

    Let him save them as he saved me

    MOB AND EVA

    A new Argentina!

    A new age about to begin!

    A new Argentina!

    We face the world together and no dissent within

    PERON

    There again we could be foolish

    Not to quit while were ahead

    I can see us many miles away

    Inactive, sipping cocktails on a terrace,

    Taking breakfast in bed, sleeping easy,

    Doing nothing, it’s attractive.

    EVA

    Don’t think I don’t think like you, I often get those nightmares too

    They always take some swallowing

    Sometimes it’s very difficult to keep momentum if

    It’s you that you are following

    Don’t close doors

    Keep an escape clause

    Because we might lose

    The Big Apple

    But—would I have done, what I did If I hadn’t thought, if I hadn’t known

    We would take the country?

    EVA

    Peron has resigned from the army and this we avow

    The descamisados are those he is marching with now!

    He supports you for he loves you, understands you, is one of you

    If not—how could he love me?

    ALL

    A new Argentina!

    The chains of the masses untied!

    A new Argentina!

    The voice of the people cannot be, and must not be, denied!

    CHE

    How annoying that they have to fight elections for their cause

    The inconvenience—having to get a majority.

    If normal methods of persuasion fail to win them applause

    There are other ways of establishing authority

    ALL

    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, denied!
