Jacob Gershvin) Producer: Norman Granz Orchestra: Nelson Riddle From the Show: Funny Face 1927 (S) Lyrics: Verse 1: Jimmy: Frankie, dear, your birthday gift reveals to me That at heart you're really not so bad. If I add, y our funny face appeals to me. Please dont' think I've suddenly gone mad. You have all the qualities of Peter Pan; I'd go far before I'd find a sweeter pan And yet Refrain: I love your funny face, Your sunny, funny face; For you're a cutie With more than beauty You've got a lot Of personality N.T. A thousand laughs I've found In having you around. Through you're not Gloria Swanson, For worlds I'd not replace Your sunny, funny face. Verse 2: Frankie: Needn't tell me that I'm not so pretty, dear, When my looking glass and I agree, In the contest at Atlantic City, dear, Miss America I'd never be, Truth to tell, though, you're not such a bad lot yourself; As a Paul Swan, you are not so hot yourself. And yet. Refrain 2: I love your funny face, Your sunny, funny face; You can't repair it, So I declare it Is quite all right - Jimmy: Like Ronald Colman? Frankie: So's your ol' man! Yet it's very clear, I'm gladwhen you are near. Though you're no Handsome Harry For worlds I'd not replace Your sunny funny face. Refrain 3: I love that funny face, That sunny, funny face; Thought it upsets one, in time, it gets one - That's true, for you Have personality for two. Those eyes! Those nose! Those cheek! Won't make a movie sheik, But though your'e not patootie, For worlds I'd not replace Your sunny, funny face. Extra chorus: Frankie: [to dog] I love your funny face, Your sunny, funny face; You never bother About your father. Have you no shame? You're just a mutt and nothing but! Yet when you wag your tail, You'll never be for sale. Though you're no Rin Tin Tin, dear, For worlds I'd not replace Your sunny, funny face.
