She was a showgirl

Did you know that “Copacabana” is about a murder and some old showgirl broad going crazy? I’ve heard that song so many freakin’ times, but I really had no clue what the story was about. I think I always just fazed out after the first verse and chorus. I swear I thought Lisa was making words up when she got to the part about the blood and gunshot. But she certainly is a lyric master.

Man, that Barry fellow wrote some messed up lyrics. Next thing you’ll tell me is that he wrote a love song about his dog or something…
