Wanna tell you about a friend of mine
Her name is Rita Valentine
Every summer night you can find her dancin'
Barefoot under a front porch light
All the boys would bring her flowers and wine
I'd be singin' when they drove by

If you get a hold of Rita then you better run for your life
She will lead you on one hell of a ride
When you need her, she will tell you goodbye
You know it's hard to hold on to Rita Valentine

Well, I saw Jimmy Ray
He just knows the same today
He an' Rita, lost someplace together
Now she's wearin' a brand new Mink
He said "It feels so sweet that sugar taste"
If you ask him, he will say

"If you get a hold of Rita then you better run for your life
She will lead you on one hell of a ride
When you need her, she will tell you goodbye
You know it's hard to hold on to Rita Valentine"

We used to laugh at the games she played
But when laughin' comes last
Your heart pays the cost and you wait

If you get a hold of Rita, you better run for your life
She will lead you on one hell of a ride
When you need her, she will tell you goodbye
You know, it's hard to hold on to Rita Valentine

Let me tell you about a friend of mine
Her name is Rita Valentine
