*New Music Monday* My Version of “My Funny Valentine”

251. My Funny Valentine

It’s #NewMusicMonday! Today, it’s a timeless jazz standard that has appeared on over 1300 albums performed by over 600 artists. No pressure then! This is my version of “My Funny Valentine”:

My Funny Valentine

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

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

Written by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart
