When you were a young girl
Did you have a rag doll, the only doll you've ever owned?
Now I'll love you just the way you loved that rag doll
Only now my love has grown

Oh, and it gets stronger as the river flows
Deeper baby, heaven knows
Higher, as it goes

Do I love you, my oh my?
River deep, mountain high, yeah, yeah, yeah
Do I love you, would I cry?
Oh I love you baby, baby, baby, baby

When you were a young girl
