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 personals column, there was this letter I read:

Always get a chuckle out of this song
Super cute!!! Love this one!
catchy for a novelty song - can't help but jam along with it when it comes on
Lol silly....me to?

Cameron and Christina dancing in the sweetest thing.
Haha. The song IS NOT about cheating. Its about trying to be who we are NOT to make someone like us. It wont end well. These two fortunately and finally find the real "each other" and we are to assume they fall in love even more. Awesome.
Love this song regardless of what it stands for!
This makes me think of Grown Ups.
Takes me back
Love this song...love how they discovered each others interests
I think there is great irony to the song.
Love! Love! Love!
OK, if it were me meeting her in the restaraunt, and it was my wife, there would be no laughing there, the cops wouldbe dragging her out the door as the EMTs load me into the ambulance.
God is great, beer is cold, life is good.

If this song played out in today's life situations, I don't think anyone's wife/husband would be laughing knowing one or both of you was about to cheat! It's still a great song to play durning a bar fight though!
personal ads? newspapers? what are these items he speaks of?!
Hmmmm. Funny way of rediscoverin g each other. And to think, they both took out personal ads thinking they were going to step out on each other.
Cheating doesn't usually turn out this way.
Kokack, what language do you speak?
I was 14 yr old wen my Sista bouth dis alunm home we play it every day. Tha why i drink Pina Colada at fat tuesday lov dis song.!!!!!!! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! Pina colada

LOVE this song!! there is a lesson learned here...it's about two people who wondered away from each other emotionally and physically, only to discover what they THOUGHT was really not so!!...they were really meant to be together and had a heck of a lot more in common than they thought!!... @ H a r l e m . . . y o u have a point, but this song is about two MATURE adults who were able to handle the situation!!
Wow, so this song was about cheating.. This song would have turned out differently in 2011.
My favorite song ever

Love all the comments & completely agree - but the song is catchy! :)
Ah, another 70's cheating song. Today we have a show called Cheating, but it never ends the same as this song.(...and probably rarely did back then - unless you key swapped)
isn't it funny to hear a song about people hooking up through the personals that has a happy ending? but agreed ramos r97. absolutely.
agreed ramos r97 I've always thought the same thing. It's okay I was going sneak around on you honey.....no w that I know you were going to too!

And, come on, who doesn't love making love on the dunes.

Although I like the song, the ending is stupid!!! Come on, a couple discovers their partner is planning to cheat via personal ad's and all they are going to do when they find out is laugh and reconnect... y e a ok.
Polarizing fluff. It deserves its spot, I guess. Can't resist hearing it now.
Amusing. I've always liked this one.
This song is very funny once I actually read the lyrics.

Years ago I found this song in my parents "stash". It's one of my many favs... I always have to imagine me & my "old man" when I hear it.
How cute is this song?!
Get in the mood? Seriously? This song is fun but it doesn't turn me on...

If you can't get in the mood with this then you're dead
all right
This song takes me back to some great years.Plus it's a fun song.
