Don’t Cry For Me Argentina


„Don’t Cry For Me Argentina”

T. Rice

A.L. Webber

from the musical „Evita”


It won’t be easy

You’ll think it strange

When I try to explain how I feel

That I still, need your love

After all that I’ve done

You won’t believe me

All you will see is a girl you once knew

Although she’s dressed up, to the nines

and sixes and sevens with you.

I had to let it happen

I had to change

Couldn’t stay all my life down at head

Looking out of the window

Staying out of the sun

So I chose freedom

Runing around trying everything new

But nothing impressed me at all

I never expected it to.


Don’t cry for me Argentina

The truth is I never left you

All through my wild days

My mad existence

I kept my promise

Don’t keep your distance.


And as for fortune and as for fame

I never invited them in

Though it seemed to the world

they were all I desired

They are illusions

They’re not the solutions they

promised to be

The answer was here all the time

I love you, and hope you love me

Don’t cry for me Argentina…

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.
