Meet Me at The Copa Lyrics

by Frank Sinatra

The statue in the harbor is a lovely sight
The Rockettes in precision are a sheer delight
But I for one would rather visit John McKnight
Meet me at the Copa, meet me at the Copa
Meet me at the Copa tonight

There are those who just adore the Art Museum
And out in Brooklyn, there's a Ballpark and a team
But I don't care a whole lot if I never see 'em
Meet me at the Copa, meet me at the Copa
Meet me at the Copa tonight

The show goes on, and on, and on
Do you hear the applause and the cheering?
Even if you're wooing, drop what you're doing
Hurry down to see what you're hearing

On 52nd street, they now have burleque
Or you can climb the Empire State to see the view
But all that stuff's for squares, here's my advice to you
Meet me at the Copa, meet me at the Copa
Meet me at the Copa tonight

Now some of you may like to go to movie shows
Or walk along Fifth Avenue to view the clothes
But here's the place that's famous for Durante's nose
Meet me at the Copa, meet me at the Copa
Meet me at the Copa tonight

You'll see the nicest people in the nicest cars
They've come to see the lounge, the club, the lovely bars
And it's the spot where stars come just to see the stars
Meet me at the Copa, meet me at the Copa
Meet me at the Copa tonight

The show goes on, and on, and on
Do you hear the applause and the cheering?
Even if you're wooing, drop what you're doing
Hurry down and see what you're hearing

The most amazing club in town you will admit
It's imitated quite a lot but this is it
And if you wanna see where all the new acts hit
Meet me at the Copa, meet me at the Copa
Meet me at the Copa tonight
