Eva's Final Broadcast


The actress hasn't learned the lines you'd like to hear
She's sad for her country
Sad to be defeated by her own weak body

Evita! Evita! Evita!

I want to tell the people of Argentina
I've decided I should decline
All the honors and titles you've pressed me to take
For I'm contented let me simply go on
As the woman who brings her people to the heart of Peron!

Don't cry for me Argentina
The truth is I shall not leave you
Though it may get harder
For you to see me
I'm Argentina
And always will be

Have I said too much?
There's nothing more I can think of
To say to you
But all you have to do
Is look at me to know that every word is true
