Baker, Anita - My Funny Valentine Lyrics

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 baby
Are you smart

Don't change your hair for me
Not if you care for me
Stay little Valentine, stay
Each day is Valentine's Day

[Musical Interlude]

[Ad lib:]
Baby, don't change your hair for me
Is your figure less than Greek
Is your mouth a little weak
When you open it to speak, are
You... baby, are you smart

Don't change your hair for me
Not if you care for me
Stay little Valentine, why don't you stay
Each day is Valentine's Day
(Scat) doo, wee, day
Ad Lib - Everyday is...
Every night is...
Every day ooh, ooh...

  4. wo1longshlongghunglotu wright

    i think she could sing anything. love the voice, sound, style and beauty. i don't think she received the musical accolades for her performances and music that she really deserved. she does a very nice rendition of the above.

  5. Joann Byrd

    Chaka, Anita and TC Carson sing it so sexy and smooooooth

  27. Wyvonia Ray

    Absolutely breathtaking! Anita is as close to Sarah " The Divine One" as it gets but still has her own unique style.

    Jerome Smith

    I agree! My dad listened to the late great Sarah Vaughn, and I grew up listening to her as well. Anita is the closest thing to "The Divine One" we will ever have.

  28. Darrell Frazier

    Ok seems I am on a "My Funny Valentine" kick. Love Anita Baker and totally love this rendition...


    Me too! Listening to all of them! First heard Des O' Connor sing it years ago
