Eva's Final Broadcast

This song is by Andrew Lloyd Webber and appears on the musical soundtrack Evita (1976) by Andrew Lloyd Webber & Tim Rice.

That was the over-the-top, unacceptable suggestion.
We didn't approve, but we couldn't prevent
The games of the wife of the president.
But to give her pretensions encouragement!
She's out of her depth and it's out of the question.

Forgive my intrusion Evita I just have to see
How you admit you have lost... a brand new experience!
Got it set up!
We fixed you a broadcast
And you're so good on the air!

The actress hasn't learned the lines you'd like to hear
How could she feel defeated by such cringing mediocrities?
She's sad for her country
Sad to be defeated by her own weak body
She's sad for her people
She hopes they will know she did not betray them

(A microphone is switched on. EVA is now on the air)

I want to tell the people of Argentina
I've decided I should decline
All the honours 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
For 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
