Copacabana Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Her name was Lola
She was a showgirl
With yellow feathers in her hair
And her 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 8 'til 4
They were young and they had each other
Who could ask for more?

At the copa
Copacabana
The hottest spot north of Havana

(here) At the copa
Copacabana
Music and passion were always the fashion
At the copa
They fell in love

His name was Rico
He wore a diamond
He was escorted to his chair,
He saw Lola dancing 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
Copacabana
The hottest spot north of Havana

(here) At the copa
Copacabana
Music and passion were always the fashion
At the copa
She lost her love

(instrumental)

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

At the copa
Copacabana
The hottest spot north of Havana

(here) At the copa
Copacabana
Music and passion were always the fashion
At the copa
Don't fall in love

COPACABANA!
