OH WHAT A CIRCUS
Madonna


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's done nothing for years



Choir: Salve Regina mater misericordiae

Vita dulcedo et spes nostra

Salve salve Regina

Ad te clamamus

Exules filii Eva

Ad tu suspiramus gementes

Et flentes o clemens o pia



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 17 October 1945

But the star has gone

The glamour'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

And she's not coming back to you



Choir:


MADONNA
