Barry Manilow - Copacabana lyrics

rate me

Her name was lolashe was a showgirl

With yellow feathers in her hair and a dress cut down to there

She would merengue and do the cha-cha

And while she tried to be a star

Tony always tended bar

Across the crowded floorthey worked from 8 til 4

They were young and they had each other

Who could ask for more?


At the copa (co!) copacabana (copacabana)

The hottest spot north of havana (here)

At the copa (co!) copacabana

Music and passion were always in fashion

At the copa.... they fell in love

His name was rico

He wore a diamond

He was escorted to his chairhe saw lola dancing there

And when she finishedhe called her over

But rico went a bit to far

Tony sailed across the bar

And then the punches flew and chairs were smashed in two

There was blood and a single gun shot

But just who shot who?

Repeat chorus

At the copa... she lost her love

Her name is lolashe was a showgirl

But that was 30 years agowhen they used to have a show

Now it's a discobut not for lola

Still in dress she used to wear

Faded feathers in her hair

She sits there so refinedand drinks herself half-blind

She lost her youth and she lost her tony

Now she's lost her mind

Repeat chorus

At the copa... don't fall in love

Don't fall in love
