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
Did you have a puppy, that always followed you around?
Well I'm gonna be as faithful as that puppy
No I'll never never let you down

'cause it gets stronger as the river flows
And it gets deeper baby, heaven knows
It gets higher, so 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 

Well I love you baby like a flower loves the spring
And I love you baby like a robin likes to sing
And I love you baby like a schoolboy likes his pie
Oh and I love you baby
River deep, mountain high

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 

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
