Lyrics to song Eva and Magaldi eva Beware of the City by Madonna

Eva:
To think that a man as famous as you are
Could love a poor little nothing like me

Chorus:

Eva:
I wanna be a part of B.A.
Buenos Aires, Big Apple
Eva's family:
She wants to be a part of B.A.
Buenos Aires, Big Apple

Che:
Just listen to that, they're on to you Magaldi
I'd get out while you can

Eva:
It's happened at last, I'm
starting to get started
I'm moving out with my man

Magaldi:
Now Eva don't get carried away

Eva:
Monotony past, suburbia departed
Who could ever be fond of the back of beyond?

Magaldi:
Don't hear words that I didn't say

Eva's family:
What's that? You'd desert the girl you love?

Magaldi:
The girl I love?
What are you talking about?

Eva's family:
She really brightened up your
out-of-town engagement
She gave you all she had, she
wasn't in your contract
You must be quite relieved that
noone's told the papers, so far

Eva:
I wanna be a part of B.A.
Buenos Aires, Big Apple

Would I have done what I did
If I hadn't thought, if I hadn't known
We would stay together

Eva's brother:
Seems to me there's no point in resisting
She's made up her mind, you've no choice
Why don't you be the man who discovered her
You'll never be remembered for your voice

Magaldi:
The city can be paradise for
those who have the cash
The class and the connections, what
you need to make a splash
The likes of you get swept up in
the morning with the trash
If you were rich or middle class ...

Eva:
Screw the middle classes! I
will never accept them!
My father's other family were middle class
And we were kept out of
sight, hidden from view at
his funeral.

Eva's brother:
Do all your one night stands
give you this trouble?

Magaldi:
Eva beware of the city
It's hungry and cold, can't be
controlled, it is mad
Those who are fools are swallowed up whole
And those who are not become what
they should not become
Changed, in short, they go bad.

Eva:
Bad is good for me
I'm bored, so clean, and so ignored
I've only been predictable, respectable
Birds fly out of here, so why oh why
oh why the hell can't I?
I only want variety, of society

chorus

Magaldi:
Five years from now I shall come back
And finally say, "You have
your way, come to town."
But you'll look at me with a foreigner's eyes
The magical city, a younger girl's city
A fantasy long since put down

Eva:
All you've done to me, was that a
young girl's fantasy?
I played your city games alright, didn't I?
I already know what cooks, how the
dirty city feels and looks
I tasted it last night, didn't I?

I'm gonna be a part of B.A.
Buenos Aires, Big Apple

Eva and family:
She's gonna be a part of B.A.
Buenos Aires, Big Apple

Magaldi:
Eva beware your ambition
It's hungry and cold, can't be
controlled, will run wild
This in a man is danger
enough, but you are a woman
Not even a woman, not very
much more than a child
And whatever you say, I'll not steal you away
