Down in the valley, ha
Hang your hair over your shoulder

Can't you hear the wind blow,
In the valley so low, now, ha
Now have you ever been lonely, lonely, ha
Did you ever really need some one, oh my

Help me baby, gotta get the groove

In the valley so low
How can I ever let you go, go, go, go, ooh now
Now it was down, down, down, down, down, down, down
When I held you so tight, now

Too much, too much, too much groovin' now
Down in the valley
So low, so low, we can't go no further
Gotta groovin', groovin', groovin'
Go no further, now
Groovin', groovin', groovin'
Watch it, watch it, wathc it
We gotta, gotta keep on, keep on groovin'
