A Little Piece of Lace
(to the tune of “I’m a Little Hunk of Tin”)
________________________________________
Just a little piece of lace,
Glue it ’round a red heart shape.
Now, add words so sweet and true,
A special message — “I love you.”

Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty Valentine!
Please, oh please, won’t you be mine?

Be My Valentine
(to the tune of “Mary Had A Little Lamb”)
________________________________________
You’re a special friend of mine,
Friend of mine, friend of mine.
You’re a special friend of mine.
Please be my valentine.

Five Pretty Valentines

Three pretty valentines waiting for a home,
[Child’s name] bought one, and then there were two.
