Barry Manilow - CopaCabana

First time I dengar lagu ni masa tengok Madagascar: Escape to Africa, si Pengguin tu pasang pakai cassette player kot if tak silap sebab si pengguin macam berangan duk kat pantai. 2nd time I dengar masa tengah sesak-sesak on the way nak jemput my buddy cik Nadhilah at her workplace. Time dengar lagu ni I terbayang duk tepi pantai Hawaii dengan my future husband berhanimun kat sana (sooo berangan ahhhaa).

Sambil-sambil tension dengan kereta-kereta besar dan mewah berlagak di jalan raya (maklum le jalan menuju ke tempat my buddy's workplace ni kawasan mewah) I boleh goyang-goyang ikut rentak lagu. Maybe because of the catchy melody. Ok, here I've paste the lyric and you can  enjoy the song. Enjoy!





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 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 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!

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
