"Funny Face" as written by Brian Blade, Greg Cohen, Adam Dornblum, Brian Eno, William R. Frisell and Jon Hassell....
[Jimmy]
Frankie, dear, your birthday gift reveals to me
That at heart you`re really not so bad.
If I add, why 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

[Chorus]
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.

[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.

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.

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.

[Frankie]
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.
