  • Valentine told me who's to go
    Feelings he treasured most of all
    The teachers and the football stars
    It's in his tiny face
    It's in his scrawny hands
    Valentine sold his soul
    He's got something to say
    It's Valentine's day
    The rhythm of the crowd
    Benny and Judy down
    Valentine sees it all
    He's got something to say
    It's Valentine's day

    Valentine told me how he feels
    If all the world were under his heels
    Or stumbling through the mall
    It's in his tiny face
    It's in his scrawny hands
    Valentine knows it all
    He's got something to say

    It's Valentine's day
    Valentine, Valentine
    Valentine, Valentine

    It's in his scrawny hands
    It's in his icy heart
    It's happening today
    Valentine, Valentine
    It's in his scrawny hands
    It's in his icy heart
    It's happening today

  • Stockhoven from The NetherlandsWell, actually I think the song is about Adolph Hitler. On the 14th of Febrary 1926 the Nazi's held a meeting in Bamberg, Bavaria, where they declared that -should they win the elections- democracy would end and Hitler would be the great dictator. So, it was his day. A painful contradiction between a day of hatred that would later become the day of love.If you look at it this way, the lyrics of the song are unambiguous.
