"My Funny Valentine" is a show tune from the 1937 Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart musical Babes in Arms in which it was introduced by former child star Mitzi Green. After being recorded by Chet Baker, Frank Sinatra and Miles Davis, the song became a popular jazz standard, appearing on over 1300 albums performed by over 600 artists.

The basic structure of the song on a c-minor tonic is as follows:
C-, C-maj7, C-7, C-6, Abmaj7, F-7, D-7(b5), G7(b9)
ditto thru to the F-7, then Db9, Bb7(b9)
(bridge) Ebmaj7, F-7, G-7, F-7, Ebmaj7, F-7, G-7, F-7, Ebmaj7, G7(+5),C-,(Bb7,A7) Abmaj7, D-7(5b) G7,
C-, C-maj7, C-7, C-6, Abmaj7, D-7(b5) G7(b9), C-, Bb-7 A7, Abmaj7, F-7, Bb7(b9), C-7 (preferred, or Ebmaj7)
This simple and classic structure makes it easy to adapt to other genres and for jazz musicians to improvise over the established chords.
