Rosemary Clooney

Rosemary Clooney (May 23, 1928 – June 29, 2002) was an American singer and actress. She came to prominence in the early 1950s with the novelty hit "Come On-a My House" written by William Saroyan and his cousin Ross Bagdasarian (better known as David Seville, the father figure of Alvin and the Chipmunks), which was followed by other pop numbers such as "Botch-a-Me" (a cover version of the Italian song Ba-Ba-Baciami Piccina by Alberto Rabagliati), "Mambo Italiano", "Tenderly", "Half as Much", "Hey There" and "This Ole House", although she had success as a jazz vocalist. Clooney's career languished in the 1960s, partly due to problems related to depression and drug addiction, but revived in 1977, when her White Christmas co-star Bing Crosby asked her to appear w… more »

Frankie, dear, your birthday gift reveals to me 
That at heart you're really not so bad. 
If I add, your funny face appeals to me. 
Please don't' 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 
 
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. 
Though you're not Gloria Swanson, 
For worlds I'd not replace 
Your sunny, funny face. 

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 

Like Ronald Colman? 

So's your old man! 
Yet it's very clear, 
I'm glad when 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 sheikh, 
But though you're not patootie, 
For worlds I'd not replace 
Your sunny, funny face. 

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.
