Requiem For Evita / Oh What A Circus (Medley) - Andrew Lloyd Webber (安德魯·勞埃德·韋伯)/Colm Wilkinson

Written by:Andrew Lloyd Webber/Tim Rice

Requiem aeternum dona evita

Requiem aeternum dona evita

 

Requiem evita requiem evita

 

Evita evita evita evita

 

Requiem aeternum dona evita

Requiem aeternum dona evita

Requiem evita requiem evita

Evita evita evita evita

 

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 how she did nothing for years

Salve Regina mater misericordiae

Vita dulcedo et spes nostra

Salve salve Regina

 

Ad te clamamus exules filii Eva

Ad te suspiramus gementes et flentes

O Clemens o pia

 

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

She's not coming back to you

 

Show business kept us all alive

Since seventeen 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

She's not coming back to you

Salve Regina mater misericordiae

 

Vita dulcedo et spes nostra

 

Salve salve Regina Peron

 

Ad te clamamus exules filii Eva

Ad te suspiramus gementes et flentes

O Clemens o pia

 

Don't cry for me Argentina

 

For I am ordinary unimportant

 

And undeserving of such attention

 

Unless we all are I think we all are

 

Ride on my train oh my people

 

And when it's your turn to die

You'll remember

 

They find those cannons sing lamentations

 

Not just for Eva for Argentina

 

Not just for Eva for everybody

 

So share my glory so share my coffin

 

So share my glory so share my coffin

 

It's our funeral too
