Escape (the Pina Colada Song) Lyrics

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 like making love at midnight
In the dunes of 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 I sound 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 into 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

This son litteraly brings me back to some sort of time in the past where I was still in high school in the 90's and went to my first high school prom with my boyfriend. It was a special day and time!

Grown ups drew me to the song and its been playing for sometime on my car stereo.I guess all of us want that someone who likes pina coladas as much as we do.

I love this song. I was 28 the first time I heard it, today I am 60. The 45 record was given to me by my then boyfriend. I sometimes sing the lyrics over & over in my mind. WONDERFUL
