The Lady's Got Potential
(Che:) In June of forty-three there was a military coup Behind it was a gang called the G.O.U. Who did not feel the need to be elected They had themselves a party at the point of a gun They were slightly to the right of Atilla the Hun A bomb or two and very few objected Yeah, just one shell and governments fall like flies, kapow, die They stumble and fall, bye bye Backs to the wall, aim high We're having a ball The tank and bullet rule as democracy dies The lady's got potential, she was setting her sights On making it in movies with her name in lights The greatest social climber since Cinderella OK, she couldn't act but she had the right friends And we all know a career depends On knowing the right fella to be stellar Yeah, just one shell and governments lose their nerve, kapow, die They stumble and fall, bye bye Backs to the wall, aim high We're having a ball That's how we get the government we deserve Now the man behind the President calling the shots Involved so discreetly in a lot of their plots Was Colonel Juan Peron, would be dictator He began in the army out in Italy so Saw Mussolini's rise from the very front row I reckon he'd do likewise sooner or later Yeah, just one blast and the tear gas falls like rain, kapow, die They haven't a chance, bye bye The terrorists advance But one guy doesn't dirty his hands Peron was biding time out in the slow lane Yeah, suddenly an earthquake hit the town of San Juan, kapow, die They stumble and fall, bye bye Keep away from the wall But one guy was having a ball The tragedy, a golden chance for Peron He organized a concert with incredible flair In aid of all the victims, such a grand affair Politicians, actors, stars of every flavor It was January twenty-second, 1944 A night to remember, yeah, that's for sure For that's the night that Peron first met Eva For that's the night that Peron first met Eva
