Rainbow Tour by Andrew Lloyd Webber


PERON
People of Europe! I send you the Rainbow of Argentina!
CHE
Spain has fallen to the charms of Evita
She can do what she likes--it doesn't matter much
She's the New World Madonna with the golden touch
She filled a bull-ring--forty-five thousand seater
But if you're prettier than General Franco
That's not hard
Franco's reign in Spain should see out the forties
So you've just acquired an ally who
Looks as secure in his job as you
More important, current political thought is
Your wife's a phenomenal asset
Your trump card
PERON and OFFICERS
Let's hear it for the Rainbow Tour
It's been an incredible success
We weren't quite sure, we had a few doubts
CHE
Would Evita win through?
PERON and OFFICERS
But the answer is yes!
EVA (in Spain)
There you are, I told you so
Makes no difference where we go
The whole world over--just the same
You should have heard them call our name
And who would underestimate the actress now?
PERON
I'm not underestimating you--just do the same thing in
Italy please
CHE
Now I don't like to spoil a wonderful story
But the news from Rome is not so good
She hasn't gone down like we thought she would
Italy's unconvinced by Argentine glory
They equate Peron with Mussolini
Can't think why
EVA (in Italy)
Did you here that?
They called me a whore!
They actually called me a whore!
AN ITALIAN ADMIRAL (CHE)
But Signora Peron--
It's an easy mistake
I'm still called an admiral
Yet I gave up the sea long ago
CHE / OFFICERS
Things aren't all that bad she met with the Pope
She got a Papal decoration and a kindly word
So even if the crowds gave our lady the bird
The Argentine/Italy axis does have some hope
She still made a fabulous impact
Caught the eye
PERON and OFFICERS
Let's here it for the Rainbow Tour
It's been an incredible success
We weren't quite sure, we had a few doubts
CHE
Would Evita win through?
PERON and OFFICERS
But the answer is--
CHE
A qualified--
PERON and OFFICERS
Yes!
CHE
Eva started well, no question, in France
Shining like the sun through the post-war haze
A beautiful reminder of the carefree days
She nearly captured the French, she sure had the chance
But she suddenly seemed to lose interest
She looked tired
PERON and OFFICERS
Tired? Eva tired?
CHE
Face the facts, the Rainbow's starting to fade
I don't think she'll make it to England now
PERON
It wasn't on the schedule anyhow
CHE
You'd better get out the flags and fix a parade
Some kind of coming home triumph
Is required
PERON and OFFICERS
Let's here it for the Rainbow Tour
It's been an incredible success
We weren't quite sure, we had a few doubts
Would Evita win through?
CHE
And the answer is--
PERON and OFFICERS
Yes
CHE
And no
PERON and OFFICERS
And yes
CHE
And no
PERON and OFFICERS
And yes... and no
Let's here it for the Rainbow Tour
It's been an incredible success...
EVA (back from Europe)
Who the hell does the King of England think he is?
Tea at some tinpot castle of his--what kind of invitation
Is that?
Argentina's First Lady deserves Buckingham Palace!
If England can do without me
Then Argentina can do without England!
