"Rainbow Tour [From Evita]" as written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice....
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 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

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!

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?

I'm not underestimating you--just do the same thing in
Italy please

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

Did you here 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

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

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?

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

Tired? Eva 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 triumph
Is required

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?

And the answer is

Yes

And no

And yes

And no

And yes, and no
Let's here it for the Rainbow Tour
It's been an incredible success

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!
