  1. Oh Valerie

From the recording Simple Dance (2015)

by Do, 1980, 2015
A sentimental favorite, the 2nd song I ever wrote. This recording was done using one mic and in rustic conditions, the way I used to record when I was a teen. The last two verses were re-written recently. Do – Vocals, Guitar.

Lyrics

You called me up and said to me
That you were feeling blue
‘Cause your boyfriend left and said it’s through.
Oh Valerie I see you are saddened.
You want me to stay for a while?
Oh Valerie just sit down and talk to me.
And maybe I’ll see your lovely smile.
You called me up and said to me
That you were feeling bad
‘Cause your father died,
An empty feeling you had.
Oh Valerie I see you are saddened.
You want me to stay for a while?
Oh Valerie just sit down and talk to me.
And maybe I’ll see your lovely smile.
You called me up and said to me
That you were feeling old
‘Cause you just turned 50;
Where did all those years go?
Oh Valerie I see you are saddened.
You want me to stay for a while?
Oh Valerie just sit down and talk to me.
And maybe I’ll see your lovely smile.
You called me up and said to me
That you were feeling scared.
As your death drew near,
You were feeling unprepared.
Oh Valerie I see you are saddened.
You want me to stay for a while?
Oh Valerie just sit down and talk to me.
And maybe I’ll see your lovely smile.
I’m your friend to talk to; I am here anytime
I’m your friend to help you;
I’m your friend, warm and kind.
Forever, I’m your friend until the very end.
The very end.
