When I was a little girl, I had a rag doll
The only doll I ever owned
Now I love you just the way, I loved that rag doll
But only now my love has grown

And it gets stronger in every way
It gets deeper, love it stays
It gets higher until our day

And, do I love you my, oh, my?
And river deep, mountain high, yeah, yeah, yeah
If I lost you, would I cry?
Oh, how I love you baby, baby, baby, baby

When you were a young boy, did you have a puppy?
That always followed you around
Well I'm gonna be as faithful as that puppy
No I'll never let you down

'Cause it goes on and on like a river flows
It gets bigger baby, heaven knows
It gets sweeter baby, as it grows

And, do I love you my, oh, my?
River deep, mountain high, yeah, yeah, yeah
If I lost you, would I cry?
Oh, how I love you baby, baby, baby, baby

And, do I love you my, oh, my?
River deep, mountain high, yeah, yeah, yeah
If I lost you, would I cry?
Oh, how I love you baby, baby, baby, baby

When I was a little girl, I had a rag doll
The only doll I ever owned
Now I love you just the way, I loved that rag doll
But only now my love has grown

And it gets stronger in every way
And it gets deeper, love it stays
And it gets higher until our day

And, do I love you my, oh, my? Yeah
River deep, mountain high, yeah, yeah, yeah
If I lost you, would I cry?
Oh, how I love you baby, baby, baby, baby

I love you baby like a flower loves the spring
I love you baby like a robin loves to sing
And I love you baby like a school boy loves his bag
I love you baby river deep, mountain high

Ahh river deep
Ahh river deep
Ahh river deep
Ahh river deep

And, do I love you my, oh, my?
River deep, mountain high, yeah, yeah, yeah
If I lost you, would I cry?
Oh, how I love you baby, baby, baby, baby
