Babes in Arms

Behold the way our fine feathered friend
His virtue doth parade
Thou knowest not my dim-witted friend
The picture thou hast made
Thy vacant brow and thy tousled hair
Conceal thy good intent
Thou noble, upright, truthful, sincere
And slightly dopey gent---You're

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 smart?

But don't change a hair for me,
Not if you care for me
Stay little Valentine stay,
Each day is Valentine's day
