Barry Manilow - Copacabana (At the Copa)
Barry Manilow, Jack Feldman en Bruce Sussman
(1978)






Her name was Lola, she 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 floor
They worked from eight till four
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 the fashion
At the Copa, they fell in love
Copa Copacabana



His name was Rico, he wore a diamond
He was escorted to his chair
He saw Lola dancin’ there
And when she finished, he called her over
But Rico went a bit too 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



At the Copa, Co
Copacabana, Copacabana
The hottest spot north of Havana, here
At the Copa, Co
Copacabana
Music and passion
Were always the fashion
At the Copa, she lost her love
Copa Copacabana



Copa Copacabana, Copacabana, ahh ahh ahh ahh
Ahh ahh ahh ahh Copa, Copacabana
Talking Havana, have a banana
Music and passion always the fashion



Her name is Lola, she was a showgirl
But that was thirty years ago
When they used to have a show
Now it’s a disco, but not for Lola
Still in the dress she used to wear
Faded feathers in her hair
She sits there so refined
And drinks herself half-blind
She lost her youth and she lost her Tony
Now she’s lost her mind



At the Copa, Co
Copacabana, Copacabana
The hottest spot north of Havana, here
At the Copa, Co
Copacabana
Music and passion
Were always the fashion
At the Copa, don’t fall in love
Copa
Don’t fall in love
Copacabana
Copacabana
Copacabana



Copa, Copacabana
Copacabana
Copacabana
Copacabana
Copacabana
Copacabana
Copacabana
Copacabana
Copacabana
