"Rainbow High" as written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice....
There again I've more to do
Than simply get the message through
I haven't started
Let's get this show on the road
Let's make it obvious
Peron is off and rolling

Eyes, hair, mouth, figure
Dress, voice, style, movement
Hands, magic, rings, glamour
Face, diamonds, excitement, image

I came from the people, they need to adore me
So Christian Dior me from my head to my toes
I need to be dazzling, I want to be rainbow high
They must have excitement, and so must I

Eyes, hair, mouth, figure
Dress, voice, style, image

I'm their product, it's vital you sell me
So machiavell me, make an Argentine rose
I need to be thrilling, I want to be rainbow high
They need their escape, and so do I

Eyes, hair, mouth, figure
Dress, voice, style, movement
Hands, magic, rings, glamour
Face, diamonds, excitement, image

All my descamisados expect me to outshine the enemy
I won't disappoint them
I'm their savior, that's what they call me
So Lauren Bacall me, anything goes
To make me fantastic, I have to be rainbow high
In magical colors

You're not decorating a girl for a night on the town
And I'm not a second-rate queen getting kicks with a crown

Next stop will be Europe
The rainbow's gonna tour, dressed up, somewhere to go
We'll put on a show

Look out, mighty Europe
Because you oughta know whatcha gonna get in me
Just a little touch of
Just a little touch of
Argentina's brand of star quality

    General CommentThis song is in the musical "Evita", about Eva Peron (wife of the Argentine president Juan Peron). This song is when Eva, or "Evita" as the Argentines called her, is going to go to Europe to help Argentina gain alliances.

    General CommentThis song is about eva's obsession with her public image. She claimed that she wanted to serve as a model for her descamisados to show them that one day they could become like her (eva grew up as a poor actress, whom in argentina were not viewed much higher than prostitutes).
