My Funny Valentine
Well, I knew sometime ago that I just had to do Frank Sinatra’s “Funny Valentine” for today. But since Elvis Costello’s Beautiful song “Alison” also has a line about “funny sticker Valentines” I will be also including it on my Daily Mockingbird Song email today and on this blog, a double dose of love to my Valentines.
For all of you less fortunate souls who never had a love poem written especially and specifically for you for Valentine’s Day you will never ever be able to day that again.
This One’s For You
Not just a catchy beer commercial
But a love song before even that.
To that love songster Barry Manilow
A tip of this love songwriter’s hat.
But this psalm is just for you
Especially and specifically writ
Every single soul deserves one
And this, My Sweet Lover, is it.
Wish that I could be there
Sing you this special tune
To you and all the world,
How you hung the moon.
For all the world, such a nice job,
Papa’s pleasure could not be hid
He loves you to the moon and back
And since that moment we all did.
Happy Valentine’s Day to you, My Beloved.
Your friend and fellow traveler,
