Rainbow Tour [From Evita] Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
People of Europe! I send you the Rainbow of Argentina!
Verse 2
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
Verse 3
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
Verse 4
Let's hear it for the Rainbow Tour
It's been an incredible success
We weren't quite sure, we had a few doubts
Verse 5
Would Evita win through?
Verse 6
But the answer is yes!
Verse 7
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?
Verse 8
I'm not underestimating you--just do the same thing in
Italy please
Verse 9
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
Verse 10
Did you here that?
They called me a whore!
They actually called me a whore!
Verse 11
But Signora Peron
It's an easy mistake
I'm still called an admiral
yet I gave up the sea long ago
Verse 12
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
Verse 13
The Argentine/Italy axis does have some hope
She still made a fabulous impact
Caught the eye
Verse 14
Let's here it for the Rainbow Tour
It's been an incredible success
We weren't quite sure, we had a few doubts
Verse 15
Would Evita win through?
Verse 16
But the answer is
Verse 17
A qualified
Verse 18
Yes!
Verse 19
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
Verse 20
Tired? Eva tired?
Verse 21
Face the facts, the Rainbow's starting to fade
I don't think she'll make it to England now
Verse 22
It wasn't on the schedule anyhow
Verse 23
You'd better get out the flags and fix a parade
Some kind of coming home triumph
Is required
Verse 24
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?
Verse 25
And the answer is
Verse 26
Yes
Verse 27
And no
Verse 28
And yes
Verse 29
And no
Verse 30
And yes, and no
Let's here it for the Rainbow Tour
It's been an incredible success
Verse 31
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!
