My Funny Valentine

music by Richard Rodgers (left)

lyric by Lorenz Hart (right)

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.
Thy noble, upright, truthful, sincere, and slightly dopey gent--you're

My funny valentine, sweet comic valentine, you make me smile with my heart.
Your 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?

But don't change a hair for me, not if you care for me,
Stay, little Valentine stay!
Each day is Valentine's Day...
