Well sometimes I go out by myself
And I look across the water
And I, think of all the things
What you're doing
And through my head I make a picture

'Cause since I've come on home
Well my body's been a mess
And I miss your ginger hair
And the way you like to dress
Won't you come on over
Stop making a fool out of me
Why won't you come on over
Valerie, Valerie

Did you have to go to jail
Put your house on up for sale?
Did you get a good lawyer?
I hope you didn't catch a tan
I hope you find the right man
Who'll fix it for you
Are you shopping anywhere
Changed the color of your hair
Are you busy?
And did you have to pay the fine
You were dodging all the time are you still dizzy?

'Cause since I've come on home
Well my body's been a mess
And I miss your ginger hair
And the way you like to dress
Won't you come on over
Stop making a fool out of me
Why wont you come on over
Valerie, Valerie, Valerie, Valerie

Well sometimes I go out by myself
And I look across the water
And I, think of all the things
What you're doing
And in my head I make a picture

'Cause since I've come on home
Well my body's been a mess
And I miss your ginger hair
And the way you like to dress
Won't you come on over
Stop making a fool out of me
Why won't you come on over
Valerie, Valerie
Valerie, Valerie, Valerie

    General CommentThis song always reminds me of this guy I know, and he's always breaking up with girls and going out with new ones really quickly, but he's only ever been in love with one of them, and she was a bit... erm, quirky, like the valerie of this song, and she had ginger hair, dressed weirdly. Also, he always wonders about her, and goes down to the Mersey to think about her, which is where I presume Dave (the singer) goes when he refers to 'I look across the water'.
    Just really similar situations methinks
