Copa Cabana

A short song, in three and half minutes, tells the story of Lola's life with a bright melody. There are joys and sorrows, ups and downs. Love burns and extinguishes. There is career in brilliant and fade.

Reflect at the stage of my life, it also rushes past like that!



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, Copacabana

(Co-Copacabana)

The hottest spot north of Havana

(Here)

At the Copa, Copacabana

(Co)

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?


At the Copa, Copacabana

(Co-Copacabana)

The hottest spot north of Havana

(Here)

At the Copa, Copacabana

(Co)

Music and passion were always the fashion

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


At the Copa, Copacabana

(Co-Copacabana)

The hottest spot north of Havana

(Here)

At the Copa, Copacabana

(Co)

Music and passion were always the fashion

At the Copa, don't fall in love, don't fall in love

Copacabana (At the Copa)





Mandy

Maybe you haven't lost or missed a friend, such as Mandy, who once loved you deeply.

But there must be a mother who will give you unconditionally love. Let you find comfort and warmth in the night of frustrated and sad .

If you find the true love in the heaven, this is even more comfort and peace eternally!



I remember all my life

Raining down as cold as ice

Shadows of a man, a face through a window

Cryin' in the night, the night goes into mornin'


Just another day

Happy people pass my way

Lookin' in their eyes, I see a memory

I never realized, you made me so happy


Oh Brand, oops

Well, you came and you gave without takin'

But I sent you away, oh Mandy

Well, you kissed me and stopped me from shakin'

And I need you today, oh Mandy


I'm standing on the edge of time

I walked away when love was mine

Caught up in a world of uphill climbin'

The tears are on my mind and nothin' is rhymin'


Oh Mandy

Well, you came and you gave without takin'

But I sent you away, oh Mandy

Well, you kissed me and stopped me from shakin'

And I need you today, oh Mandy


Yesterday's a dream, I face the mornin'

Cryin' on the breeze, the pain is callin'


Oh Mandy

Well, you came and you gave without takin'

But I sent you away, oh Mandy

Well, you kissed me and stopped me from shakin'

And I need you today, oh Mandy


Well, you came and you gave without takin'

But I sent you away, oh Mandy

Well, you kissed me and stopped me from shakin'

And I need you today, oh Mandy, oh Mandy

Mandy
