EVITA A NEW ARGENTINA Madonna 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 WORKERS' VOICES Peron! Peron! CHE 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 hated it too But I found my salvation in Peron--may the nation Let him save them as he saved me CHE A new Argentina! A new age about to begin! CHE and SECRET POLICE A new Argentina! We face the world together and no dissent within (The SECRET POLICE lay into CHE) INDIVIDUAL WORKERS Nationalisation of the industries that the foreigners control Participation in the profits that we make Shorter hours Higher wages Votes for women Larger dole More public spending A bigger slice of every cake PERON It's annoying that we have to fight elections for our cause The inconvenience--having to get a majority If normal methods of persuasion fail to win us applause There are other ways of establishing authority SECRET POLICE We have ways of making you vote for us, or at least of making you abstain 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 will not be, and must not be, denied! PERON There again we could be foolish Not to quit while we're ahead I can see me many miles away Inactive Sipping cocktails on a terrace Taking breakfast in bed Sleeping easy, doing crosswords 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? 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!
