  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Music Lyrics Explained 23. The song that

  • we're covering today is 'My Funny Valentine. \" All right. This song has been

  • sung by a lot of singers both male and female singers. Maybe one of the most

  • notable might be Frank Sinatra. I think Louis Armstrong, but really both of them

  • have sang it. So it's been both sung by you know, like with a male kind of a male

  • version and a female version of it too. But the lyrics could really cover both.

  • Anyway let's take a look at the note. here. This song is originally from a

  • Broadway musical called \"Babes in Arms. \" Okay. The original version was sung by a

  • woman in regard to a man with the name Valentine. So that's why it was really my

  • funny Valentine originally. Even though now this is played every year at

  • Valentines Day and most people most people probably think of it meaning

  • Valentine and you can take it that way. That's the way a lot of people who did a

  • remake of it. That's the way they kind of sing it, but anyway, let's continue. The

  • lyrics were playfully teasing him and pointing out his flaws Things that's not

  • perfect about him, but basically telling him I love you just the way you are. Okay.

  • So let's let's go over it and you see why it's a really a pretty good song, and

  • it's to be honest it's almost perfect for Valentine's Day. It ends up fitting

  • that way even though it was really meant originally for a man that was supposed

  • to be cold Valentine. But it's perfect for Valentine's Day. So let's go over it.

  • Again just like usual I'll read and sing it and we'll cover

  • any vocabulary that needs to be covered. So it starts like this. 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. All right. So let's go over that. Well now Valentine , mostly when

  • people hear Valentine you know, we think of it in regard to Valentine's Day. So it

  • means someone's Valentine is a person you give a Valentine present to on

  • Valentine's Day. So for the man, the woman is the Valentine, for the woman the man

  • is the Valentine. We can also refer to the card or the gift on Valentine's Day

  • as a Valentine. So you know, did you get a Valentine this year ? Even though to be

  • honest with you I think it's really mostly men that give to women. We have

  • heard in certain countries like in Japan, I know there's a Valentine's Day

  • where women have to buy men chocolate too. But in most cases it's really the

  • guy is the one that has to come up with the gifts , the presents , the chocolates,

  • the hearts, the flowers, whatever. Okay. Let's continue here. So we say my funny

  • valentine. Sweet comic valentine. All right. Sweet so if we say someone is sweet he or she

  • makes you have a pleasant feeling, usually because they are kind , gentle or

  • nice to be with. Yeah. Basically, Then we say somebody is really sweet. You know,

  • your daughter is sweet. He's a sweet man. She's a sweet woman. Okay. Sweet comic.

  • Comic really just means funny. So if we say sweet comic valentine. So maybe

  • originally he was a funny guy. You make me smile with my heart.

  • All right. so of course she, she loves him. Basically, she feels good you know, her

  • heart feels good maybe when he's around. Your looks are laughable. I'm not quite

  • sure this one's a compliment. Laughable could mean very silly or causing someone

  • to laugh. Yes. So you say your looks are laughable. So I'm not quite sure that's a

  • compliment. They're unphotographable. Well. Unphotographable could have a couple of meanings.

  • First it could mean unworthy of a photograph. Maybe, maybe he's not really

  • all that handsome of a guy. Or very difficult to catch in a photo

  • too, So sometimes we mean that too, That's something could be unphotographable.

  • You just can't quite catch it right. You can't right catch the quality that you

  • wanted to catch in the photograph. In that sense it could be unphotograblable.

  • Okay. Even though, here maybe she does mean that he's not that attractive.

  • I don't know. Unphotographable. Yet you're my favorite work of art. Well obviously

  • she loves him. Even again but this kind of idea is going throughout the song . That

  • even though, he's not perfect. He's still kind of perfect to her.

  • You know or vice versa. If this is a guy singing about a girl. You're my favorite

  • work of art. So you know, you you look perfect to me

  • basically. Is your figure ... All right. So this is the next part. Is your figure

  • less than Greek ? Is your mouth a little weak ? When you open it to speak are you

  • smart ? All right. So let's go on. Figure, figure mean shape. You know, is

  • your figure less than Greek ? All right. Figure meaning like the shape of

  • somebody's body. So maybe he doesn't have the perfect body either. I don't know is

  • your figure less than Greek ? All right Greek. Greek you know,, of relating to

  • ancient or modern Greece its people or its language. Probably this line is

  • probably thinking of like you know the old Greek art , you know , maybe like

  • Adonis or something. Somebody some statue of some muscular sort of a guy. So I

  • think she means it in that sense. That you know, your figure is less than Greek. So it's kind of a nice way of saying you don't probably have that good a figure.

  • It's less than you know, perfect you know, muscular

  • Adonis, you know, maybe Hercules or something. Something along that

  • line. So is your figure less than Greek ? Is

  • your mouth a little weak ? All right. Weak, a weak facial feature we

  • might say this is small and suggests poor character. Yeah we might often say

  • like somebody could have a weak chin. For example, if you have a weak chin it's

  • kind of like your chin just kind of disappears some people might have a chin

  • like that it just kind of disappears and goes in really quickly. Here they say

  • mouth. She's probably means more like lips maybe he has small lips. Maybe she

  • doesn't think that's really you know very desirable. But yet again, she still

  • loves him. Is your mouth a little weak ? Well just like we said here. The original

  • one. There she's pointing out his flaws. Is your mouth a little weak ? When you

  • open it to speak. Are you smart ? Oh I don't know that she needs a question

  • that ? She questions she might still be teasing him here. Are you smart ?

  • But anyway, but no matter all of this stuff. We go to the next verse and she

  • says, but don't change a hair for me. Not if you care for me. Stay my little

  • Valentine's stay. Because each day is Valentine's Day.

  • All right. So don't change a hair for me. Just like we say here. Don't change hair for

  • me means don't change anything at all. A hair , only one little hair you if you

  • don't want to change that. It means you want don't want to change anything. So

  • even though you have a lot of these flaws. In my eyes, you're still perfect

  • the way you are. .Don't change anything So don't change a hair for me. Not if you

  • care for me, meaning you know , because you know I love you just the way you are.

  • If you change you know, it may not be the same. Stay my little Valentine's stay. Because each

  • day is Valentine's Day. I guess she's trying to

  • say that you know maybe he makes her feel like every day is Valentine's Day.

  • Because you know a lot of course Valentine's Day supposed to be a special

  • day, especially for women. You know, getting gifts and maybe a man is

  • supposed to show his love for women on that day. But again , so anyway after

  • that they both, they basically just repeat the two different choruses again.

  • So there's really no more new vocabulary. They just repeat you know, is your figure

  • less than Greek ? Is your mouth a little weak ? So it repeats like those sort of

  • choruses and then it also repeats again you know, but don't change a hair for me.

  • So that's pretty much it. With the lyrics, but again this is kind of a it's , it's a

  • classic song. Sung by a lot of people and it's really it's kind of a perfect

  • Valentine's Day song too. So anyway, I hope you got it. I hope you enjoyed it.

  • Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
