1968, miss Tina Turner
The brothers Kulick, Killer and Pretty Boy came up with this one
River Deep, Mountain High, hit it!

Boy: When you were a young girl did you have a rag doll?
The only doll you’ve ever owned?
Now I love just the way you loved that rag doll
Only now our love has grown

And it gets stronger in every way
Girl:And it gets deeper baby, let me say
Boy:And it gets higher
Both:Day by day

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

Girl: When you were a young boy did you have a puppy?
Always followed you around, yeah?
Well, I’m gonna be as faithfull as that puppy, baby
You know I’m never gonna let you down

And it gets stronger in every way
Boy:And it gets sweeter baby, let me say
Girl:And it gets higher, baby
Both:Day by day

And do I love you? My oh my!
River deep, mountain high
If I lost you would I cry?
Oh, I love you baby, baby baby....

Boy: Hey Karla, c’mon sweetheart

Boy:I love you baby like a flower loves the spring
Girl:And I love you baby just like a robin loves to sing
Boy:And I love you baby like a schoolboy loves his bag
Girl:And I love you baby, river deep and mountain high
Both:Baby–baby–oh baby–baby–oh baby baby hey hey yeah yeah

Do I love you? My oh my!
River deep, mountain high
If I lost you would I cry?

If I lost you would I cry
Oh, I love you baby, baby baby

Do I love you? My oh my!
River deep, mountain high
If I lost you would I cry
Oh, I love you baby, baby baby baby....
