Copacabana | Barry Manilow

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 a crowded floor, they worked from 8 till 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 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 gunshot….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
[back to **]
(Music and passion…always the fash–shun)
Her name is Lola, she was a showgirl
But that was 30 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!
[back to ** 3x] At the Copa….don’t fall in love

I am a greedy person. I always want to get more, to be more, to gain more. Sometimes I feel like I can't get through my own mind. I couldn't even understand myself. That's why I create ExtraordinarNee. To see through me, and to be seen... :)
