My Valentine Heart
When I say I love you

It comes from my heart
(Hand on heart)
You hear it in your ear

And it sounds very smart
(Point to head)
I love it when you’re proud of me

You say it all day long
(Stretch arms wide)
And when I hear you say it
(Point to ear)
My heart sings a merry song
(Hand on heart)
