Her Name was Lola ...

... she was a showgirl ...

Have I mentioned that I'm a Fanilow? Oh, yes I am! And I don't care who knows it. I came out of the Barry-Manilow-fan closet years ago, which is way more then I can say about Mr. Manilow. He seems to be rather fond of the closet.

... with yellow feathers in her hair and a dress cut down to there...

I've even seen him in concert. I'll admit it. I had a good time too. He might be cheesy, but in a totally awesome way. My mother even got to sit on stage at his concert in Las Vegas. I come from a long line of proud, yet still somewhat embarrassed, Fanilows.

... She would merengue and do the cha-cha ...

There's nothing better than cranking up "Mandy" on the car stereo and belting it at the top of your lungs and completely out of key.

... And while she tried to be a star, Tony always tended bar Across the crowded floor, they worked from 8 til 4 ...

So, I have an appointment to watch Barry on the Q tomorrow night and I can't wait. He writes the songs, you know!

... They were young and they had each other, Who could ask for more?
