my funny valentine

One more time . . .

I've always loved this song by Rodgers & Hart, especially Ella's version.

Behold the way our fine-feathered friend
his virtue doth parade.
Thou knowest not my dim-witted friend,
the picture Thou hast made.
Thy vacant brow and Thy tousled hair
conceal Thy good intent.
Thou noble upright, truthful, sincere
And slightly dopey gent you're..

My funny valentine
Sweet comic valentine
You make me smile with my heart

You looks are laughable, unphotographable
Yet you're my favorite work of art

Is your figure less than greek
Is your mouth a little weak
When you open it to speak, are you smart?

Don't change a hair for me
Not if you care for me
Stay little valentine stay

Each day is valentine's day

Isn't true love about loving the whole package, imperfections and all?
