I just wanted to share a photo I took of my valentine over the weekend.
Isn’t he handsome! Even though I think he’s the most beautiful thing in the world I sometimes like to keep him on his toes and sing this song to him:
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 favourite 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
If you wanted to listen to it, here is a version by my favourite jazz vocalist, the timeless Ella Fitzgerald of course (she begins the song with an additional verse so it’s a little longer).
