  • Tim Rice – Dangerous Jade (Evita) lyrics

    Peron is a fool, breaking every taboo
    Installing the girl in the army H.Q.
    And she’s an actress! The last straw
    Her only good parts are between her thighs
    She should stare at the ceiling, not reach for the skies
    Or she could be his last w____
    The evidence suggests
    She has other interests
    If it’s her who’s using him
    He’s exceptionally dim
    B____! Dangerous Jade!

    ARISTOCRATS
    We have allowed ourselves to slip
    We have completely lost our grip
    We have declined to an all-time low
    Tarts have become the set to know

    EVA (on the air)
    I’m only a radio star with just one weekly show
    But speaking as one of the people I want you to know
    We are tired of the decline of
    Argentina with no sign of
    A government able to give us the things we deserve

    ARMY
    It’s no crime for officers to do as they please
    As long as they’re discreet and keep clear of disease
    We ignore, we disregard
    But once they allow a bit on the side
    To move to the center where she’s not qualified
    We are forced be on our guard
    She should get into her head
    She should not get out of bed
    She should know that she’s not paid
    To be loud but to be laid
    S___! Dangerous Jade!

    (EVA, the glamorous movie star, enters,
    Flanked by HEAVIES.)

    CHE (in the guise of a reporter)
    This has really been your year Miss Duarte
    Tell us where you go from here Miss Duarte
    Which are the roles that you yearn to play
    Whom did you sleep–dine with yesterday?

    EVA
    Acting is limiting the lines not mine
    That’s no help to the Argentine

    CHE
    Can we assume then that you’ll quit? Is this because of
    Your involvement with Colonel Peron?

    HEAVIES
    Goodnight and thank you

    (They push CHE aside and EVA out)

    ARMY
    She won’t be kept happy by her nights on the tiles
    She says it’s his body but she’s after his files
    So get back onto the street!
    She should get into her head
    She should not get out of bed
    She should know that she’s not paid
    To be loud but to be laid
    The evidence suggests
    She has other interests
    If it’s her who’s using him
    He’s exceptionally dim

    ARISTOCRATS
    Things have reached a pretty pass
    When someone pretty lower class
    Graceless and vulgar, uninspired
    Can be accepted and admired
