My Funny Valentine
Chet Baker Lyrics


My funny Valentine, sweet comic Valentine
You make me smile with my heart
Your looks are laughable
Unphotographable
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

There was no more complete jazz musician than Chet when he first appeared on the scene - They called him the Male Elizabeth Taylor - he was so handsome. He played by ear. I think the jury is still out regarding drugs and art. The combination produced too much greatness for us not to stop and wonder. I've known too many artists who confessed to doing their best work while drugged (especially on alcohol) for me to pass judgement. Chet was the greatest, but he died violently as he lived.

Every now and again someone comes along and shows the rest of us what it is like to enjoy their magic. Chet was one of those few. Thanks for sharing.

I'm about to cry watching this. His version of this song has always melted my heart to a big ol' puddle. I've never heard it live before. His voice was so smooth and lovely and soothing...<3

Chet Baker Brings IT every time!!! He's moved me more than any artist ever. They say, a singer can't sing it with their hart , if they haven't had it OR been there! You hear it in his voice and you can see it in the deep lines all over his face... he'll always move me like none other.... Chet Rules!!

Let me be honest. This is too much. I mean it's too good. And look at his facial expressions! Master

In past 7 months I heard this amazingly touching performance more than 50 times and never enough CHET BAKERs tragic life imbedded into. Hearing more he becomes my favorite, not so funny but sad Valentine. Amazing and old style Jazz in its best.
