[Intro]
| F Am7 G | F G7sus4 | C Em Dm7 | C C9/E |
| F Am7 G | F G7sus4 | C Em Dm7 |  C  |
                                  (break)


[Verse 1]
                  F     Am7 G 
I was tired of my lady
F            G7sus4     C   Em Dm7
 We'd been together too long
C       C/E        F      Am7 G F
 Like a worn out recording
F     G7sus4      | C Em Dm7 |
 Of a favorite song

C             C9/E      F       Am7 G
 So while she lay there sleepin'
F           G7sus4   C   Em Dm7 
 I read the paper in bed
C           C9/E     F       Am7 G
 And in the personal columns
F               G7sus4   C    Em Dm7 |  C  |
 There was this letter I read        (break)


[Chorus 1]
                   F     Am7 G
If you like piña coladas
F            G7sus4        C    Em Dm7
 And gettin' caught in the rain
C          C9/E     F    Am7 G
 If you're not into yoga
F       G7sus4      C      Em Dm7
 If you have half a brain 

C            C9/E           F       Am7 G
 If you like makin' love at midnight
F       G7sus4     C     Em Dm7
 In the dunes of a cape
C             C9/E             F          Am7 G
 Then I'm the love that you've looked for
F         G7sus4   C    Em Dm7 |  C  |
 Write to me and escape       (break)


[Interlude]
| F Am7 G | F G7sus4 | C Em Dm7 | C C7/E |
| F Am7 G | F G7sus4 | C Em Dm7 |  C  |
                                  (break)


[Verse 2]
                        F     Am7 G 
I didn't think about my lady
F            G7sus4        C     Em Dm7
 I know that sounds kind of mean
C           C9/E   F    Am7 G
 But me and my old lady 
F           G7sus4   C        Em   Dm7 [ C ]
 Had fallen into the same old dull rou-tine

C     C9/E         F     Am7 G
 So I wrote to the paper
F           G7sus4   C    Em Dm7
 Took out a personal ad
C               C9/E     F    Am7 G
 And though I'm nobody's poet
F             G7sus4      C    Em Dm7 |  C  |
 I thought it wasn't half bad         (break)


[Chorus 2]
                   F     Am7 G
Yes, I like piña coladas
F            G7sus4        C    Em Dm7
 And getting caught in the rain
C        C9/E      F           Am7 G
 I'm not much into health food
F     G7sus4   C     Em Dm7
 I am into champagne

C            C9/E          F           Am7 G
 I've got to meet you by tomorrow noon
F                G7sus4       C    Em Dm7
 And cut through all this red tape
C     C9/E         F         Am7 G
 At a bar called O'Malley's
F            G7sus4     C    Em Dm7 |  C  |
 Where we'll plan our escape        (break)


[Interlude]
| F Am7 G | F G7sus4 | C Em Dm7 | C C7/E |
| F Am7 G | F G7sus4 | C Em Dm7 |  C  |
                                (break)


[Verse 3]
                 F         Am7 G 
So I waited with high hopes
F        G7sus4        C    Em Dm7
 And she walked in the place
C           C9/E        F        Am7 G
 I knew her smile in an instant
F           G7sus4       C    Em Dm7
 I knew the curve of her face

C          C9/E       F      Am7 G
 It was my own lovely lady 
F               G7sus4   C    Em Dm7
 And she said, "Aw, it's you."
C        C9/E          F       Am7 G
 Then we laughed for a moment
F              G7sus4      C    Em Dm7 |  C  |
  And I said, ... "I never knew."      (break)


[Chorus 3]
                     F     Am7 G
That you like piña coladas
F            G7sus4        C    Em Dm7
 And gettin' caught in the rain
C        C9/E        F      Am7 G
 And the feel of the ocean
F        G7sus4       C    Em Dm7
 And the taste of champagne

C            C9/E           F       Am7 G
 If you like making love at midnight
F       G7sus4       C    Em Dm7
 In the dunes on the cape
C           C9/E      F          Am7 G
 You're the lady I've looked for
F          G7sus4   C    Em Dm7 |  C  |
 Come with me and escape”       (break)


[Interlude]
| F Am7 G | F G7sus4 | C Em Dm7 | C C7/E |
| F Am7 G | F G7sus4 | C Em Dm7 |  C  |
                                (break)


[Chorus 1] (fade out)
                   F     Am7 G
If you like piña coladas
F            G7sus4        C    Em Dm7
 And gettin' caught in the rain
C          C9/E     F    Am7 G
 If you're not into yoga
F       G7sus4      C      Em Dm7
 If you have half a brain 

C            C9/E           F       Am7 G
 If you like makin' love at midnight
F       G7sus4     C     Em Dm7
 In the dunes of a cape
C             C9/E             F          Am7 G
 Then I'm the love that you've looked for
F         G7sus4   C    Em Dm7 |  C  |
 Write to me and escape       (break)


[Chorus 2]                   F     Am7 G
Yes, I like piña coladas
F            G7sus4        C    Em Dm7
 And getting caught in the rain
C        C9/E      F           Am7 G
 I'm not much into health food
F     G7sus4   C     Em Dm7
 I am into champagne
