"River Deep, Mountain High" as written by Eric Pulido, Mckenzie Smith and Robert Gomez....
When I was a little girl I had a rag doll
The only doll I've ever owned
Now I love you just the way I loved that rag doll
But only now my love has grown
And it gets stronger in every way
And it gets deeper let me say
And it gets higher day by day

Do I love you my oh my
River deep, mountain high
If I lost you would I cry
Oh how I love you baby, baby, baby, baby

When you were a young boy did you have a puppy
That always followed you around
Well I'm gonna be as faithful as that puppy
No I'll never let you down
Cause it goes on and on like a river flows
And it gets bigger baby and heaven knows
And it gets sweeter baby as it grows

Do I love you my oh my
River deep, mountain high
If I lost you would I cry
Oh how I love you baby, baby, baby, baby

I love you baby like a flower loves the spring
And I love you baby like a robin loves to sing
And I love you baby like a schoolboy loves his bag
And I love you baby river deep mountain high

    General CommentWhat else could this be about? Unabashed, celebrated love. I doubt she was singing to Ike. A very good song; what a voice! Such power and emotion behind it!

    General CommentGreat song! Spector's greatest work. Eric Burdon and the Animals did a nice cover it in 68 on the Love Is album. The guitarist on it was Andy Summers, later to be the guitarist in The Police.
    If I remember correctly on the Animals version, in that bridge part he sings;
    I love you baby like a flower loves the spring
    And I love you baby like Aretha Franklin needs to sing.
    And I love you baby like a school boy loves his pie.
    And I love you baby river deep and mountain high.
