My Funny Valentine

    (Richard Rodgers, Lorenz Hart)

Transcribed from vocals by Arthur Prysock, recorded 1965, from Babes in Arms, 1937.
From The Rodgers and Hart Songbook: My Funny Valentine, Verve 314 526 448-2.

My funny valentine,
Sweet comic valentine,
You make me smile with my heart,
Your lips* are laughable,
Yet you're my favorite work of art.

Is 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.

Stay, little valentine, stay!
Each day is Valentine's, Valentine's day.

*The word is "looks" instead of "lips" in the original lyrics.
