About Funny Face

"Funny Face' is a song written and recorded by American country music artist Donna Fargo. It was released in August 1972 as the second single from the album The Happiest Girl in the Whole USA. "Funny Face" hit number one on the country chart and was a Gold Record. "Funny Face" remained number one for three weeks and spent a total of fourteen weeks on the chart. "Funny Face" also crossed over to the pop chart, peaking at number five. Fargo revealed to Tom Roland in The Billboard Book of Number One Country Hits that she originally offered comedian George Lindsey the chance to record the song first, but he turned it down. "It was a natural song for me to write, 'cause my husband used to call me 'funny face' and I used to call him 'fuzzy face' because he always wore a beard," she told Roland. "It was just kind of a little song to him." She wrote 16 verses to it but decided to use only the first two in her record.

Funny Face, I love you 
Funny Face, I need you 
My whole worlds wrapped up in you 

When the road I walk seems all up hill 
And the colors in my rainbow turn blue 
You kiss the tears away 
You smile at me and say 
Funny Face, Funny face I love you 

Funny Face, I love you 
Funny Face, I need you 
These are the sweetest words I've ever heard 
Funny Face, don't leave me 
Funny Face, believe me 
My whole world's wrapped up in you. 

And when I hurt your feelings as I sometimes do 
And I saw those mean things that we know are not true 
You forgive my childish ways 
You hold me close and say 
Funny Face, Funny Face I love you 

Funny Face, I love you 
Funny Face, I need you 
These are the sweetest words I've ever heard 
Funny Face, don't leave me 
Funny Face, believe me 
My whole worlds wrapped up in you 

Funny Face, I love you 
Funny Face, I need you 
These are the sweetest words I've ever heard 
Funny Face, don't leave me 
Funny Face, believe me 
My whole worlds wrapped up in you
