Madonna : The Lady’s Got Potential Lyrics

In June of 43 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 Attila the Hun
A bomb or two and very few objected

Just one shell and governments fall like flies, ka-pow, die
They stubble 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
Of making it in movies
With her name in lights
The greatest social climber
Since Cinderella

Okay 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

Just one shell and governments lose their nerve, ka-pow, 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

Just one blast and the tear gas falls like rain, ka-pow, 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

Suddenly a earthquake hit the town of San Juan, ka-pow, die
They stubble 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 22, 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
