Lyrics
Your my funny Valentine, sweet comic Valentine,
You make me smile with my heart,
Your looks are laughable, un-photo-graphical,
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 smiling?
But don´t change a hair for me,
Not if you care for me.
Stay little valentine, stay!
Each day is Valentine´s Day

Each day is Valentine´s Day
