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 paint a picture

'Cause since I've come on home
Well my body's been a mess
And I've missed your ginger hair
And the way you like to dress

Won't you come on over
Stop makin? a fool out of me
Why don't you come on over valerie?
Valerie valerie valerie

Did you have to go to jail
Put your house on up for sale
Did you get a good lawyer?

Hope you didn't catch a tan
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 that fine
You was dodging all the time
Are you still busy?

Since I've come on home
Well my body's been a mess
And I've missed your ginger hair
And the way you like to dress

Won't you come on over
Stop makin? a fool out of me
Why don't 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 paint a picture

?cause since I've come on home
Well my body's been a mess
And I've missed your ginger hair
And the way you like to dress

Won't you come on over
Stop makin? a fool out of me
Why don't you come on over valerie?
Valerie valerie valerie

Valerie valerie valerie valerie
Why don't you come on over valerie?

    Someone who's gone far away from his hometown, and keep remembering the same girl called valerie who was making a fool out of him yet he's still missing him so much.. While after he comeback to his hometown; he pathetically waiting and hoping valerie to come over... :)

    Love this song.. Remind me of what we call true love; which can't be conquered by time..

    He's in love with valerie, she's making a fool out of him, he wants her to know that he's in love with her and how is she doing. Point blank, he's in love
