RAINBOW TOUR
Тексты песен
People of Europe! I send you the Rainbow of Argentina!
Spain has fallen to the charms of Evita
She can do what she likes it doesn't matter much
She's our Lady of the New World 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
But more important, current political thought is
Your wife's a phenomenal asset
Your trump card
Let's hear it for the Rainbow Tour
It's been an incredible success
We weren't quite sure, we had a few doubts

Will Evita win through?

But the answer is yes!

There you are, I told you so
Makes no difference where she goes
The whole world over just the same
Just listen to them call her name
And who would underestimate the actress now?

Now I don't like to spoil a wonderful story
But the news from Rome isn't quite as 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

Did you hear that?
They called me a whore!
They actually called me a whore!

But Signora Peron
It's an easy mistake
I'm still called an admiral yet I gave up the sea long ago

More bad news from Rome she met with the Pope
She only got a rosary, a kindly word
I wouldn't say the Holy Father gave her the bird
But Papal decorations never a hope
She still looked the part at St. Peter's
Caught the eye

Let's hear 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?

But the answer is

A qualified
Yes!

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

Face the facts, the Rainbow's starting to fade
I don't think she'll make it to England now

It wasn't on the schedule anyhow

You'd better get out the flags and fix a parade
Some kind of coming home in triumph
Is required.

Let's hear 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?

And the answer is

Yes

And no

And yes

And no

And yes... No
Let's hear 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?
But the answer is yes
Yes
