Down in the valley
In valley so low
Hang your hair over your shoulder
And you can hear the four wind blow

Why can't you hear the wind blow my love?
Can't you hear the wind blow?
We're down in the valley
In the valley so low, now

Now have you ever been lonely, lonely?
Now have you ever been sad?
Did you ever really need some one, oh my?
Who really needed fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa

Gotta, gotta, gotta, too much, ooh yeah
Help me baby, gotta get the groove
So too much, so, ooh yeah

It was down in the valley
In the valley so low
It was when I held you so tight
How can I ever let you go, go, go, go, go

I can't walk down, down, down, down, down, down, down
In the valley so low
When I held the baby you so tight, now
How could I ever let you go, now

Good God, too much, too much, too much groovin' now
Too much, gotta down in the valley
We're down in the valley
So low, so low, we can't go no further

We're down, we're down too much
Gotta groovin', groovin', groovin'
Gotta, we can't, we can't, we can't, we can't
We can't, we can't, we can't go no further, now

Gotta, gotta, good God Almighty we gotta, gotta, groovin', groovin', groovin'
Too much grippem, watch it, watch it, watch it
Gotta, a good time we're havin'
We gotta, gotta keep on, keep on groovin'
