Song Lyrics

Escape (The Pina Colada Song) 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 sleepin' I read the paper in bed
And in the personal columns, there was this letter I read

If you like piña 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 that sounds kind of mean
But me and my old lady had 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 piña 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, "Aw, it's you."
Then we laughed for a moment and I said, "I never knew."

That you like piña coladas and gettin' caught in the rain
And the feel of the ocean and the taste of champagne
If you like making love at midnight in the dunes on the cape
You're the lady I've looked for, come with me and escape

If you like piña 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 on the cape
Then I'm the love that you've looked for, write to me and escape

Yes I like piña 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

"Escape (The Piña Colada Song)" by Rupert Holmes is a whimsical narative that explores themes of love, boredom, and the unexpected twists in relationships. The song tells a story of a man who, feeling jaded with his long-term relationship, discovers a personal ad in the newspaper that piques his interest. The ad describes someone seeking a partner who enjoys piña coladas, getting caught in the rain, and other specific likes that contrast with the mundane routine of his current relationship.

Intrigued and looking for an escape from his disaatisfaction, the man responds to the ad, seeking to meet this mysterious person. The twist in the song comes when he discovers that the person who wrote the ad is his current partner. This revelation leads to a moment of realization and amusement for both, as they discover that they had been unknowingly seeking each other all along.

The song cleverly uses the piña colada as a metaphor for seeking excitement and adventure outside the familiarity of a long-term relationship. The tropical drink symbolizes a longing for something exotic and different, a desire to break free from routine. The mention of making love at midnight in the dunes and getting caught in the rain further underscores the yearning for passion and spontaneity.

"Escape" ultimately highlights the irony and humor in seeking something new only to find that what one is looking for is already present in their current relationship. It suggests that sometimes, the excitement and adventure people seek may be hidden beneath the surface of the familiar. The song encourages listeners to rediscover and appreciate the existing love in their lives, emphasizing that sometimes, the greatest adventures and joys can be found with the person they are already with.

Rupert Holmes with Escape (The Piña Colada Song) has the 4:38 of total length. Cute ballad that expresses the mood of its era, is well suited for cooking food or for washing your car. Is one of the biggest hits of the America’s last century, included in many TOP collections. A pleasant voice of the singer is very good on the beat of music. Listen to it to have an idea about how your grandparents used to love to relax with what accompaniment.
