  • Radka Toneff - My Funny Valentine

    5:43

    My funny valentine
    Sweet comic valentine
    You make me smile with my heart
    Your looks are laughable
    Unphotographable
    Yet youre my favourite work of art

    Is your figure less than greek
    Is your mouth a little weak
    When you open it to speak
    Are you smart?

    But dont change a hair for me
    Not if you care for me
    Stay little valentine stay
    Each day is valentines day

    Is your figure less than greek
    Is your mouth a little weak
    When you open it to speak
    Are you smart?

    But dont you change one hair for me
    Not if you care for me
    Stay little valentine stay
    Each day is valentines day

    Composed by Ornette Coleman, lyrics by Margo Guryan.
    Live on Scottish TV, 1982 (re-broadcast on NRK). With Jon Balke, piano, Arild Andersen, bass, and Alex Riel, drums. Another live version of this song is released on Live in Hamburg (Odin Records, Norway, 1993), recorded in 1981.

    Lyrics:
    Lonely in the night she wanders
    Who can she tell of her heartache
    They that knew her didn't care
    Wouldn't share heartache
    She is a lonely woman
    No one to cry to at all

    Once she wore a smile of gladness
    Now on her smile there are teardrops
    They that knew her didn't care
    Wouldn't wear teardrops
    She is a lonely woman
    To wander alone through the darkness

    Once she loved a man
    Don't bother to imagine how she loved him
    You'd never guess at all
    She never told the secret of her sorrow
    And yet there was someone who knew

    He had eyes that saw her sorrow
    He heard the sound of her sadness
    When he called her no one came
    But the same sadness
    He calls the lonely woman
    But never again will she hear him

    5:16



    Just Like a Woman is a song by singer-songwriter Bob Dylan, released on his 1966 album, Blonde on Blonde.______Photo:Monica Bellucci_______

    Just Like A Woman
    Nobody feels any pain
    Tonight as I stand inside the rain
    Ev'rybody knows
    That Baby's got new clothes
    But lately I see her ribbons and her bows
    Have fallen from her curls
    She takes just like a woman, yes she does
    She makes love just like a woman, yes she does
    And she aches just like a woman
    But she breaks just like a little girl.

    Queen Mary, she's my friend
    Yes, I believe I'll go see her again
    Nobody has to guess
    That Baby can't be blessed
    Till she finally sees that she's like all the rest
    With her fog, her amphetamine and her pearls
    She takes just like a woman, yes she does
    She makes love just like a woman, yes she does
    And she aches just like a woman
    But she breaks just like a little girl.

    It's was raining from the first
    And I was dying there of thirst
    So I came in here
    And your long-time curse hurts
    But what's worse
    Is this pain in here
    I can't stay in here
    Ain't it clear that.

    I just can't fit
    Yes, I believe it's time for us to quit
    When we meet again
    Introduced as friends
    Please don't let on that you knew me when
    I was hungry and it was your world
    Ah, you fake just like a woman, yes you do
    You make love just like a woman, yes you do
    Then you ache just like a woman
    But you break just like a little girl.

    Antonio lives life's frevo
    Antonio prays for truth
    Antonio says our friendship
    Is a hundred-proof
    The vulture that circles Rio
    Hangs in this L.A. sky
    The blankets they give the Indians
    Only make them die
    But sing the Song
    Forgotten for so long
    And let the Music flow
    Like Light into the Rainbow
    We know the Dance, we have
    We still have the chance
    To break these chains and flow
    Like Light into the Rainbow
    Antonio loves the desert
    Antonio prays for rain
    Antonio knows that Pleasure
    Is the child of Pain
    And lost in La Califusa*
    When most of my hope was gone
    Antonio's samba led me
    To the Amazon
    We sing the Song
    Forgotten for so long
    And let the music flow
    Like Light into the Rainbow
    We know the Dance, we have
    We still have the chance
    To break these chains and flow
    Like Light into the Rainbow.
