Barry Manilow - Copacabana (At The Copa) 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 8 til 4
They were young and they had each other
Who could ask for more?

[Chorus:]
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

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 gun shot
But just who shot who?

[Chorus]

At the copa... she lost her love

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

[Chorus]

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

  35. Amethyst Grace

    -Anybody here has actual taste in music-

  36. ThePaulfullTruth

    This song recounts a classic tragedy. Another ballad with a similar storyline but more soulful lyrics you may like is Marty Robbin's "El Paso" (1958).

  44. Adrian Cabral de Lira

    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 (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 dancing there
    And when she finished, he 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?

    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)

    like in Havana
    (Copa, banana)
    Music and passion were always in 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 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 in fashion
    At the copa don't fall in love

    don't fall in love
    (Copacabana)
    (Copacabana)

  55. Vresod

    im here from reddit

    lavpot11040425

    John Ste lol calmed down. is this comment hurting you? no? then move along

    John Ste

    lavpot11040425 is there something about my comment that makes me appear not calm? It’s a genuine question that confuses me.

    I already literally said it’s not hurting anyone. It’s just a silly thing that is annoying to see because it takes up space in the comments where discussion could occur.

    Saying to move along is a two way street, did my comment hurt you? Why are you so angry? Do you see how these are ineffectual things to say?

    anthony carlos

    Banger song

    daniel yehoshua

    Ok plebbitor

  56. 凌儿

    I originally heard this in a band version and I thought it's a happy song until I read the lyrics

  57. AMAYA VILLE

    Everyone’s commenting about friends but what about in fuller house when Jackson sang this to Lola

  58. Pat Clark

    Me: hears upbeat music and decides to listen to it.



    Also me: hears everything about Lola. "And I'm bisexual, am dating my bffs ex, and am depressed!"


    Me five seconds later: "AnD tHiS iS wHaT hApPeNs At ThE cOpAcAbAnA!!!"

    "The hottest spot north of Havana" which Havana are they referring to??

    Guinea Pig

    kannibalismeboy
    Duh, the one South of Copacabana 🙄.

    kannibalismeboy

    @Guinea Pig I have now found out that they sing about a night club in NYC named Copacabana and not the Brazilian beach. So the Havana they sing about is probably the cuban capital :)
