Copacaphantom!

I wrote this song a few years ago, I love Barry Manilow, my favorite song by him is the copacobana. So I wrote a crossover song and here it is! Enjoy my parody!

Cobacaphantom!



Her name was Christine, she was a dancer

With pink ribbons in her hair & dance slippers up to here

She would plie in first position

And while she tried to be a star

Erik always tended rafters

Across the crowded stage, they played from 8 to 12

They were young and they had each other

Who could ask for more?



At the Opera, The Paris Opera

The hottest spot North of the Louvre

At the Opera, the Paris Opera

Music and passion were always in fashion

As the Opera…they fell in love



His name was Raoul

He had a title

He was escorted to his box, he saw Christine dancing there

And when she finished, he applauded

But Raoul went a bit too far

Erik sailed across the stage

And then the lassos flew and scenes were smashed in two

There was blood and a single Punjab

But just who punjabbed who?



At the Opera, The Paris Opera

The hottest spot North of the Louvre

At the Opera, the Paris Opera

Music and passion were always in fashion

As the Opera…they fell in love



At the Opera…she lost her love



Her name is Christine, she was a dancer

But that was 30 years ago when there used to be a show

Now it’s up for auction, but not for Christine

Still in the tutu she used to wear

Faded ribbons in her hair

She sits there so refined, and drinks herself half-blind

She lost her youth and she lost her Erik

Now she’s lost her mind



At the Opera, The Paris Opera

The hottest spot North of the Louvre

At the Opera, the Paris Opera

Music and passion were always in fashion

As the Opera…they fell in love



At the Opera…don’t fall in love



Don’t fall in love

Don’t fall in love
