Che
The lady's got potential, she ought to go far.
She always knows exactly who her best friends are.
The greatest social climber since Cinderella.
But Eva's not the only one who's getting the breaks;
I'm a research chemist who's got what it takes,
And my insecticide's gonna be a bestseller.

Yeah, just one blast and the insects fall like flies
Kapow! Die! They don't have a chance!
In the fly-killing world it's a major advance!
In my world it'll mean finance:
I'm shaping up successful Capitalist-wise!

But getting back to Eva, she just saw those guys
as steps on the ladder to the ultimate prize,
and he goes by the name of Colonel Peron.
He began his career in the army overseas,
teaching all the other soldiers all he knew about skis.
When others took a tumble he would always stay on.

Yeah, sure Peron could ski, but who needs a snowman?
He said:

Peron
Great men don't grow on trees!
I'm one, I ain't gonna freeze!
Dictators Don't grow on skis!

Che
Peron would be no number two to no man!

He married in the meantime but the poor girl died.
Imagine if she hadn't - we'd have been denied
the heart-warming, tear-jerking rise to fame of Eva.
Now my insecticide contains no dangerous drugs.
It can't harm humans, but it's curtains for bugs.
If you've got six legs, I ain't doin' you no favor.

Yeah, just one blast and the insects fall like flies!
Kapow! Die! They don't have a chance!
In the fly-killing world it's a major advance!
In my world it'll mean finance:
I'm shaping up successful Capitalist-wise!

Yeah, just one blast and the insects fall like flies!
Kapow! Die! They don't have a chance!
In the fly-killing world it's a major advance!
In my world it'll mean finance:
I'm shaping up successful Capitalist-wise!

Oh yes, Peron, he joined a faction called the G.O.U.
(G - Government, O - Order, U - Unity)
They were the gang behind the military coup,
So Peron was a heartbeat away from control of the nation.
They thought that Hitler had the war as good as won;
They were slightly to the right of Atilla the Hun,
And Eva set her sights on Peron and his situation.

And Eva set her sights on Peron and his situation.

Peron
The G.O.U. is a three pronged operation:
Government, unopposed and allied
with Order ruthlessly appplied
and Unity: those not on our side
are subject to the process of elimination.
