Wonderful Copenhagen (Audio)

Wonderful, wonderful Copenhagen,
friendly old girl of a town
'neath her tavern light, on this merry night
let us clink and drink one down.

To wonderful, wonderful Copenhagen,
salty old queen of the sea
Once I sailed away, but I'm home today,
singing Copenhagen, wonderful, wonderful
Copenhagen for me (fine)

I sailed up the Skagerrak
and sailed down the Kattegat
through the harbor and up to the quay
And there she stands waiting for me,
with a welcome so warm and so gay.*

Wonderful, wonderful Copenhagen...


da capo al fine

*1952 bedeutete das noch nicht "schwul", sondern "fröhlich".
