Lyrics
Che
Oh, what a circus
 
Oh, what a show
 
Argentina has gone to town
 
Over the death of an actress called Eva Perón
 
We've all gone crazy
 
Mourning all day and mourning all night
 
Falling over ourselves to get all
 
Of the misery right
 
 
 
Oh, what an exit
 
That's how to go
 
When they're ringing your curtain down
 
Demand to be buried like Eva Perón
 
It's quite a sunset
 
And good for the country in a roundabout way
 
We've made the front page of all
 
The world's papers today
 
 
 
But who is this 'Santa Evita'?
 
Why all this howling, hysterical sorrow?
 
What kind of goddess
 
Has lived among us?
 
How will we ever
 
Get by without her?
 
 
 
She had her moments
 
She had some style
 
The best show in town was the crowd
 
Outside the Casa Rosada crying "Eva Perón!"
 
But that's all gone now
 
As soon as the smoke from the funeral clears
 
We're all gonna see and how
 
She did nothing for years
 
 
Ensemble
Salve regina mater misericordiae
 
Vita dulcedo et spes nostra
 
Salve salve regina
 
Ad te clamamus exules filii Eva
 
Ad te suspiramus gementes
 
Et flentes o clemens o pia
 
 
Che
You let down your people Evita
 
You were supposed to have been immortal
 
That's all they wanted
 
Not much to ask for
 
But in the end you
 
Could not deliver
 
 
 
Sing, you fools, but you've got it wrong
 
Enjoy your prayers 'cos you haven't got long
 
Your queen is dead
 
Your king is through
 
She's not coming back to you
 
 
 
Show business kept us all alive
 
Since 17 October 1945
 
But the star has gone
 
The glamour's worn thin
 
That's a pretty bad state for a state to be in
 
 
 
Instead of government we had a stage
 
Instead of ideas a prima donna's rage
 
Instead of help we were given a crowd
 
She didn't say much but she said it loud
 
 
 
Sing you fools but you've got it wrong
 
Enjoy your prayers 'cos you haven't got long
 
Your queen is dead
 
Your king is through
 
She's not coming back to you
 
 
Ensemble
Salve regina mater misericordiae
 
Vita dulcedo et spes nostra
 
Salve salve regina Peron
 
Ad te clamamus exules filii Eva
 
Ad te suspiramus gementes
 
Et flentes o clemens o pia
 
 
Eva
Don't cry for me, Argentina
 
For I am ordinary, unimportant
 
And undeserving of such attention
 
Unless we all are, I think we all are
 
So share my glory, so share my coffin
 
So share my glory, so share my coffin
 
 
Che
It's our funeral too
