Vocal & Parody lyric by Fred Landau; thanks to Julie Miller for story help ***

JEWISH-ENGLISH EXPLANATIONS ARE BELOW, WITH THE PARODY LYRICS;

Note re questions about the ocean shots: Thought it would be fun to use an idealized Butte, Montana like in an old musical, so i hope it's not confusing - we did cut palm trees out of two of the chuppah photos, though. :)

JEWISH-ENGLISH EXPLANATIONS ARE BELOW, WITH THE PARODY LYRICS;

Parody of the musical & song COPACABANA by Barry Manilow, Jack Feldman and Bruce Sussman;

I saw the stage musical in Pittsburgh at the CLO last week and got inspired to try to parody how happy a show it is for having such a sad song as its source (an aspect the stage musical handles wonderfully, by the way). Lola does get her Tony in this parody!


Contact info for the parody: starfighterllc@aol.com

And thanks to ROUTE DESIGN TECHNOLOGY for making what you're seeing in the video happen!


PARODY OF THE BARRY MANILOW/BRUCE SUSSMAN/JACK FELDMAN MUSICAL & SONG COPACABANA

AT THE CHUPPAH (CHUPPAH/CABANA)

Her name was Lola,
She was a shul girl [shul = Jewish house of worship]
With a nice sheitel in her hair [sheitel = head cover or wig for women]
And a dress from who knows where
She'd sing some klezmer about the Bible [klezmer = a folk music style]
And while she watched him from afar,
Tony studied for the bar.
Across a crowded shul,
She thought he's way way cool
He was cute and he loved his mother
She was no one's fool

At the Chuppah, [canopy at a wedding]
By the cabana
The hottest spot in Butte, Montana [Butte: pop. 34000, Jewish pop. maybe 100]
At the Chuppah by the cabana
No nicer setting
For their happy wedding
At the Chuppah
They pledged their love

His name was Barry,
He was a singer
When they raised Lola on her chair,
Barry couldn't help but stare
And when they dropped her, he ran right over
But Barry tried to make a move,
Tony didn't like that groove
And all the punch they'd drunk
Wrought havoc with their junk
One big kiss and a lot of passion
But well, who'd have thunk

At the Chuppah
By the cabana
With Mom and Dad, Grampa and Nana
At the Chuppah by that cabana
Tony and Barry
Decided to marry
At the Chuppah
She lost her love

Her name is Lola,
She was a shul girl
But now she's married very well,
With some stories she can tell
She lives in Frisco, where she met Luba
She wrote a play about the tale,
The play had a movie sale
It played the Broadway boards
And won like ten awards
She has an Oscar, she has a Tony
And two Golden Swords

AT THE CHUPPAH IN BUTTE MONTANA
The hottest play since OLEANNA
At the Chuppah by that cabana
She married Luba
They signed the ketubah [Jewish marriage contract]
At the Chuppah
They sealed their love
They sealed their love
