"Valerie" as written by and Marvin Webster Ross....
I didn't have a chance in art school
You offered to help this poor fool
And I was more than pleased
That you had taken me under your wing

And during those first encounters
I sensed a curious power
But I was ill-equipped
To understand your subtle hints

Oh Valerie
I never thought it would go this far
Oh Valerie
I never thought it would go this far

I never suspected your intentions
When you showed unusual affection
But when you kissed my cheek
My world collapsed, my knees went weak

In a moment that just made no sense
I lost my nerve and innocence
I turned and ran away
I'll never understand that day.

Oh Valerie
I never thought it would go this far
Oh Valerie
I never thought it would go this far

It's so easy to see now
You dropped a thousand clues
But no matter which way I turn,
I've got something to lose,
Something to lose.

Oh Valerie
I never thought it would go this far
Oh Valerie
I never thought it would go this far

The last I saw of Valerie
She was down in the student gallery
By some aspiring soul - I hope she understands her role...
Still stumped in my confusion
With one less innocent illusion,
I've got just this to say:
I wish there had been an easier way!

Oh Valerie
I never thought it would go this far
Oh Valerie
I never thought it would go this far
