Copacabana is a 1978 song originally by Barry Manilow.

Tim, Mark, and Phil sing it as "Bella-banana" while at the grocery store trying to find a toy unicorn for Agnes when her original one is accidentally disintegrated by Edith. The rest of the song isn't heard as it cuts to Gru sending his children to bed.
