The Lyrics

This is the story of what happened to the nighclub 7 years later whe a McDonnell Douglas DC-10 lost control and slammed into the Copa Cabana Disco
His name was Tony, he was a waiter
With yellow feathers round' his hair and a shirt right out of sight
he would merengue and do the cha-cha
But while he served his customers,
Tony always tended bar
Across the crowded floor, he worked from 8 til 4
He was young and he had the floor
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....it stands no more.

His name was Rico. He wore a diamond.
He was escorted to his chair, he saw Tony serving wine
And when he finished, he called him over,
But Rico heard a whining sound
Tony sailed across the bar
And then the plane came through, the place was smashed in two
There were eight great big explosions
But just what hit who?

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....It stands no more.

.Copa... Copacabana... music and passion... always the fashion...

It was the Copa, Copacabana,
But that was 30 years ago, when they used to have a show.
Now it's a parking lot with a mall on top
and as for tony, he died that day.
Melted feathers in his hair.
And i sit here so refined, and drink myself half-blind.
I lost my youth and he's lost his Copa,
And I've lost my mind!

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....It stands no 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....It stands no 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....It stands no more
(repeat one more time, slowly)
This is not a true story. i just made it up. i don't think this song had a parody.

Borrows far too liberally from the original, and not funny.
