Don't Cry For Me Argentina - Madonna
Music: Andrew Lloyd Webber
Lyrics: Tim Rice
The song was written in 1976 in memory of Evita Perón, the second wife of Argentine President Juan Perón.
Footage in the video is from the film: «Eva Perón» by Juan Carlos Desanzo, starring Esther Goris and Victor Laplace.
The song was initially performed by Julie Covington and its name came from an inscription on the plaque of Evita Peron's grave at Recoleta cemetery in Buenos Aires.
Madonna sang the same song in 1996, in the musical drama: Evita, directed by Alan Parker and written by Parker and Oliver Stone. The film starred Madonna as Evita Perón, Antonio Banderas as Ché and Jonathan Pryce as Juan Perón.

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
at sixes and sevens with you.

I had to let it happen, I had to change
couldn't stay all my life down at heel
looking out of the window, staying out of the sun.
So I chose freedom
running 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 are 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.

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.

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.
