Lyrics

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 'til four
They were young and they had each other
Who could ask for more
At the Copa (copa) Copacabana
(copacabana)
The hottest spot north of Havana (here)
At the Copa (copa) 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 (whistle)
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 (copa) Copacabana
(copacabana)
The hottest spot north of Havana (here)
At the Copa (copa) Copacabana
Music and passion were always the fashion
At the Copa (scream)
She lost her love
(copa copacabana)
(copa copacabana)
(copacabana)
(a-a-a-h-h-h...)
(a-a-a-h-h-h...)
(a-a-a-h-h-h...)
(aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh)
(copa copacabana)
(like in 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 the 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 (copa) Copacabana
(copacabana)
The hottest spot north of Havana (here)
At the Copa (copa) 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)
