Dancing   woman

Her name was Lola
She was a showgirl
With faded feathers in her hair
And a dress cut down to there
She would meringue
And do the cha-cha
But 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?

Chorus:
At the Copa
Copacabana
The hottest spot north of Havana
At the Copa
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
The chairs were smashed in two
There was blood and a single gunshot
But just who shot who?

Chorus:
At the Copa
Copacabana
The hottest spot north of Havana
At the Copa
Copacabana
Music and passion were always the fashion at the Copa!
She lost her love

(Here is where the cool dance occurs!)

Dancing Dude

Her name is Lola
She was a showgirl
But that was thirty years ago
When she 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
Copacabana
The hottest spot north of Havana
At the Copa
Copacabana
Music and passion were always the fashion at the Copa!
Don't fall in love
Don't fall in love
