Another Suitcase in Another Hall by Madonna

I love Madonna! I loved her more when I watched Evita years ago (I think it was ’97 or ’98) with my best friend. The film adaptation of the hit Broadway musical depicting the infamous real-life story of Eva “Evita” Duarte de Peron, the wife of President Juan Peron, who rose from poverty to become the most famous Argentine woman in history. She’s the most hated and most beloved woman in Argentina. Evita has a short, but amazing life. She died of cervical cancer at the age of 33.

Selections from Evita

(Eva:)
I don’t expect my love affairs to last for long
Never fool myself that my dreams will come true
Being used to trouble (SHOULD BE: TRAVEL)I anticipate it
But all the same I hate it, wouldn’t you?

Chorus:

(Eva:) So what happens now?
(Che:) Another suitcase in another hall
(Eva:) So what happens now?
(Che:) Take your picture off another wall
(Eva:) Where am I going to?
(Che:) You’ll get by, you always have before
(Eva:) Where am I going to?

Time and time again I’ve said that I don’t care
That I’m immune to gloom, that I’m hard through and through
But every time it matters all my words desert me
So anyone can hurt me, and they do

(chorus)

Call in three months time and I’ll be fine, I know
Well maybe not that fine, but I’ll survive anyhow
I won’t recall the names and places of each sad occasion
But that’s no consolation here and now.

(chorus, with Che’s lines being sung by the starlets)

(Huevo:)
Don’t ask anymore.
