My Funny Valentine

14 February 2024

My Funny Valentine

Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart

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



and slightly dopey gent:


You’re my funny valentine


Sweet comic valentine


You make me smile

with my heart.


Your looks are laughable,



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


my Valentine


Each day is

Valentine’s Day.
