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!
