Escape The Pina Colada Song Lyrics

Artist: Rupert Holmes

Escape (The Pina Colada Song)
Rupert Holmes

I was tired of my lady
We'd been together too long
Like a worn-out recording
Of a favorite song
So while she lay there sleeping
I read the paper in bed
And in the personal columns
There was this letter I read

"If you like Pina Coladas
And getting caught in the rain
If you're not into yoga
If you have half a brain
If you'd like making love at midnight
In the dunes on the Cape
Then I'm the love that you've looked for
Write to me and escape."

I didn't think about my lady
I know that sounds kind of mean
But me and my old lady
Have fallen into the same old dull routine
So I wrote to the paper
Took out a personal ad
And though I'm nobody's poet
I thought it wasn't half bad

"Yes I like Pina Coladas
And getting caught in the rain
I'm not much into health food
I am into champagne
I've got to meet you by tomorrow noon
And cut through all this red-tape
At a bar called O'Malley's
Where we'll plan our escape."

So I waited with high hopes
And she walked in the place
I knew her smile in an instant
I knew the curve of her face
It was my own lovely lady
And she said, "Oh it's you."
Then we laughed for a moment
And I said, "I never knew."

That you like Pina Coladas
Getting caught in the rain
And the feel of the ocean
And the taste of champagne
If you'd like making love at midnight
In the dunes of the Cape
You're the lady I've looked for
Come with me and escape

repeat chorus twice and fade out

me and my friends always sing this song at school but we only knew the chorus so they wanted me to look up the whole song for us to sing in the morning at school

I never ever really listened to the words of this song until my son told me yesterday, Now this song has completely changed for me i thought it was only about a drink

I have never really listened to the lyrics until today on the radio. This song may have very well saved our rollercoaster marriage. My theme song forever!

I just heard this song today and just love it! If only everybody knew what there spouse was really like, maybe more marriages would last.

I've always loved this song... when I was a kid I used to dream about Cape Hatteras because of it. Now that I'm married, when I hear it I just think about the adventures that I'll have with my wife!
