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 
Jimmy: 
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.
