FUNNY FACE
Ella Fitzgerald


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 wo
