My Funny Valentine: The Chet Baker Songbook

My Funny Valentine
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 smart?
But don't change your hair for me
Not if you care for me
Stay little Valentine, stay!
Each day is Valentines day
Time After Time
Time after time, I tell myself that I'm
So lucky to be loving you
So lucky to be the one you run to see
In the evening, when the day is through

I only know what I know, the passing years will show
You've kept my love so young, so new
And time after time, you'll hear me say that I'm
So lucky to be loving you
Angel Eyes
Try to think that love's not around
Still it's uncomfortably near
My poor old heart ain't gainin' any ground
Because my angel eyes ain't here

Angel eyes, that old Devil sent
They glow unbearably bright
Need I say that my love's mispent
Mispent with angel eyes tonight

So drink up all of you people
Order anything you see
And have fun you happy people
The drink and the laugh's on me

Pardon me but I gotta run
The fact's uncommonly clear
I gotta find who's now the number one
And why my angel eyes ain't here
'Scuse me while I disappear
Embraceable You
Embrace me, my sweet embraceable you
Embrace me, you irreplaceable you
Just one look at you My heart grew tipsy in me
You and you alone Bring out the Gypsy in me

I love all the many charms about you
Above all, I want these arms about you
Don't be a naughty baby
Come to papa, come to papa do
My sweet embraceable you
Come rain or come shine
I'm gonna love you like nobody's loved you
Come rain or come shine
High as a mountain and deep as a river
Come rain or come shine

I guess when you met me, it was just one of those things
But don't you ever bet me, 'cause I'm gonna be true if you let me

You're gonna love me like nobody's loved me
Come rain or come shine
We'll be happy together, unhappy together
Now won't that be just fine?

The days may be cloudy or sunny
We're in or we're out of the money
But I'm with you always
I'm with you rain or shine
Deep In A Dream
I dim all the lights and I sink in my chair.
The smoke from my cigarette climbs through the air.
The walls of my room fade away in the blue,
And I'm deep in a dream of you.

The smoke makes a stairway for you to descend;
You come to my arms, may this bliss never end,
For we love anew just as we used to do
When I'm deep in a dream of you.

Then from the ceiling, sweet music comes stealing;
We glide through a lover's refrain, you're so appealing
That I'm soon revealing my love for you over again.

My cigarette burns me, I wake with a start;
My hand isn't hurt, but there's pain in my heart.
Awake or asleep, ev'ry mem'ry I'll keep
Deep in a dream of you.
All The Way
When somebody loves you
It's no good unless he loves you, all the way
Happy to be near you
When you need someone to cheer you, all the way

Taller than the tallest tree is
That's how it's got to feel
Deeper than the deep blue sea is
That's how deep it goes if it's real

When somebody needs you
It's no good unless he needs you, all the way
Through the good or lean years
And for all the in-between years, come what may

Who knows where the road will lead us
Only a fool would say
But if you'll let me love you
It's for sure I'm gonna love you,
all the way, all the way

So, if you'll let me love you
It's for sure I'm gonna love you,
all the way, all the way
There Will Never Be Another You
There will be many other nights like this,
And I'll be standing here with someone new,
There will be other songs to sing, another fall, another spring,
But there will never be another you.

There will be other lips that I may kiss,
But they won't thrill me like yours used to do,
Yes, I may dream a million dreams,
But how can they come true,
If there will never ever be another you.
That Old Feeling
I saw you last night and got that old feeling
When you came in sight, I got that old feeling
The moment that you danced by, I felt a thrill
And when you caught my eye, my heart stood still

Once again I seemed to feel that old yearning
Then I knew the spark of love was still burning
There'll be no new romance for me, it's foolish to start
'cause that old feeling is still in my heart
Let's Get Lost
Let's get lost, lost in each other's arms
Let's get lost, let them send out alarms
And though they'll think us rather rude
Let's tell the world we're in that crazy mood

Let's defrost, in a romantic mist
Let's get crossed, off everybody's list
To celebrate this night we found each other
Darling, let's get lost
Someone To Watch Over Me
There's a somebody I'm longing to see.
I hope that she turns out to be
Someone who'll watch over me.

I'm a little lamb who's lost in the wood.
I know I could, could always be good
To one who'll watch over me.

Although I may not be the man
Some girls think of as handsome,
But to her heart I'll carry the key.

Won't you tell her, please, to put on some speed,
Follow my lead, oh how I need
Someone to watch over me.
I Fall In Love Too Easily
There are those who can leave love or take it, love to them is just what they make it
I wish that I were the same, but love is my fav'rite game

I fall in love too easily, I fall in love too fast
I fall in love too terribly hard for love to ever last
My heart should be well-schooled ‘cause I’ve been burned in the past
And still I fall in love too easily, I fall in love too fast
