VERSE 1
Be hold 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, sincere,
And slightly dopey gent--you're...
REFRAIN
My funny Valentine,
Sweet comic Valentine
You make me smile with my heart.
Your looks are laughable,
Unphotographable,
Yet you're my fav'rite work of art.
Is your figure less than Greek?
Is your mouth a little bit 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.
