Glee Cast – Copacabana Lyrics

GLEE LYRICS

“Copacabana”


Sam:
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?

Sam (New Directions):
At the copa (copa!) Copacabana (Copacabana)
The hottest spot north of Havana (here)
At the copa (copa!)

Sam with New Directions:
Copacabana
Music and passion were always the fashion
At the copa.... (Sam: they fell in love)

New Diretions:
Copa, Copacabana

Sam with New Directions harmonising:
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?

Sam (New Directions):
At the copa (copa!) Copacabana (Copacabana)
The hottest spot north of Havana (here)
At the copa (copa!)

Sam with New Directions:
Copacabana
Music and passion were always the fashion
At the copa.... (Sam: she lost her love)

New Directions:
Copa, Copacabana
Copa, Copacabana, Copacabana
Music and passion, always the fashion
Ooooh, oooh, oooh

Sam with New Directions harmonising:
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

Sam (New Directions):
At the copa (copa!) Copacabana (Copacabana)
The hottest spot north of Havana (here)
At the copa (copa!)

Sam with New Directions:
Copacabana
Music and passion were always the fashion
At the copa.... (Sam: don't fall in love)

Sam (New Directions):
(Copa) Don't fall in love (Copacabana)
Don't fall in love (Copacabana)
(Copacabana)

Sam with New Directions:
Copacaba-a-na
