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)
