    BARRY MANILOW

    Even Now 1978

    Copacabana (At The Copa)



    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?


    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.... 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 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... 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 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... don't fall in love
    Don't fall in love
