Can you complete the lyrics to ''Escape (The Pina Colada Song)"?

Revisit the most popular personals ad of all time.

Forty years ago, one of the most memorable personals ads of all time was unleashed as a pop song that had everybody writing about long walks on the beach long after. 

Rupert Holmes' "Escape (The Pina Colada Song)" shot to No. 1 in 1979, and it remains a popular pick on movie soundtracks, even today.

Think you can remember every note of this decades-old hit? If it helps, put the blender away for now to keep you from mixing things up below...

  1. I was tired of my lady, we’d been together too long / Like a [???] recording, of a favorite song
  2. So while she lay there sleeping, I read the paper in bed / And in the personals column, there was this [???] I read
  3. If you like Pina Coladas, and getting [???] in the rain
  4. If you’re not into [???], If you have half a brain
  5. If you like making love at [???], in the dunes of the cape
  6. I’m the love that you’ve [???], write to me, and escape.
  7. I didn’t think about [???], I know that sounds kind of mean
  8. But me and my old lady, had fallen into the [???] routine
  9. So I wrote to the paper, took out a personal ad / And though I’m nobody’s [???], I thought it wasn’t half bad.
  10. Yes I like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain / I’m not much into [???], I am into champagne
  11. I’ve got to meet you by tomorrow noon, and cut through all this red tape / At a bar called [???], where we’ll plan our escape.
  12. So I waited with high hopes, then she walked in the place / I knew her smile in an instant, I knew the [???] of her face
  13. It was my own lovely lady, and she said, [???] / And we laughed for a moment, and I said, “I never knew”
  14. That you liked Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain / And the [???] of the ocean, and the taste of champagne
  15. If you like making love at midnight, in the dunes of the cape / You’re the [???] that I’ve looked for, come with me, and escape.

15 out of 15. I used to listen to this song at the store where I worked. They played old songs there at one time before they began playing the crap they play now seven days a week.

Didn't do good on the quiz, but the song brought back good memories.

It looks like I'm the only one that got 15/15 correct. Some others got 13/15, some even worse than that.

13/15. Foiled by 4 and 12. Heard this song A LOT when I was in the eighth grade. Rupert Holmes' other top ten hit was actually better. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wuENKbzJXxU&list=OLAK5uy_l9HdR_kEeijXEKhOQ_S-04TkXaPvxk_GA
Can anyone name the song he, {Rupert Holmes} penned, that The Partridge Family covered?

You are wrong on question 15, listen to the song it’s lady not love. Please fix.
TomTerrrific LarryDrinnin 3 months ago
Actually I recall the song uses both "lady" and "love" in different choruses, so it's kind of a tricky question.
anthony TomTerrrific 3 months ago
Thanks Tom.Is that you Mr. Seaver?😋
If thats youre correct i got 14/15.... Tom Seaver was the man
Afraid not. Although I've played the quizes a few times, this is my first time posting at MeTv.
