Valerie Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Hey Valerie, baby, what's the matter with you?
I did all of the things that you wanted me to
I went downtown with my pocketknife
Cut your other man but I spared his life
Valerie, won't you be good to me?
Verse 2
Hey Valerie, baby, what's the matter with you?
Come on, come on, baby and tell me true
Hey now baby, what did I do?
I shot my dog 'cause he growled at you
Valerie, won't you be good to me?
Verse 3
Valerie, what's the matter with me?
I never ever done you no wrong
I sing the blues nearly all night long
Verse 4
Valerie, what's the matter with me?
You know, I'd do anything that you say
I can't understand why you tell me, "Please go away"
Verse 5
I ain't afraid of the cold, cruel world outside
No Chicken Little runnin' from a fallin' sky
The only thing troubles me is you
If you leave me, what can I do?
Valerie, won't you be good to me?
Verse 6
You got me down on the knees of my shakin' feet
Can't play the blues 'cause of you I drop the beat
Valerie, what's your complaint?
I try to be everything I ain't
Valerie, won't you be good to me?
Valerie, won't you be good to me?
Yeah Valerie, won't you be good to me?
