The Piña Colada Song

Piña Colada is inspired by the song Escape by Rupert Holmes.

If you like Pina 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
I´m the love that you´ve looked for, write to me, and escape.
