    Lyrics

    (Che:)
    Oh what a circus, oh what a show
    Argentina has gone to town
    Over the death of an actress called Eva Peron
    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 Peron
    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 Peron"
    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

    (Crowd:)
    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
    Hail, oh queen, mother of mercy
    Our life, sweetness, and hope
    Hail, hail, oh queen
    To you we cry, exiled sons of eve
    To you we sigh, mourning and weeping
    Oh clement, oh loving one

    (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 got it wrong
    Enjoy your prayers because you haven't got long
    Your queen is dead, your king is through
    And she's not coming back to you

    Show business kept us all alive
    Since seventeen October 1945
    But the star has gone, the glamor'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 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

    (Crowd:)
    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
