“Well sometimes I go out by myself
and I look across the water
and I think of all the things
what you’re doing
and in my head I make a picture

‘Cause since I’ve come on home
well my body’s been a mess
and I’ve missed your ginger hair
and the way you like to dress
won’t you come on over
stop making a fool out of me
why won’t you come on over Valerie, Valerie?

Did you have to go to jail
put your house on up for sale
did you get a good lawyer?
I hope you didn’t catch a tan
I hope you find the right man
who’ll fix it for you
are you shopping anywhere
changed the colour of your hair
are you busy?
And did you have to pay the fine
you were dodging all the time
are you still dizzy?

‘Cause since I’ve come on home
well my body’s been a mess
and I’ve missed your ginger hair
and the way you like to dress
won’t you come on over
stop making a fool out of me
why won’t you come on over
Valerie, Valerie, Valerie, Valerie?

Well sometimes I go out by myself
and I look across the water
and I think of all the things
what you’re doing
and in my head I make a picture

Cause since I’ve come on home
well my body’s been a mess
and I’ve missed your ginger hair
and the way you like to dress
won’t you come on over
stop making a fool out of me
why won’t you come on over
Valerie, Valerie, Valerie, Valerie?

Yeah Valerie”.

Citazioni.

Valerie is a song written by English indie rock band The Zutons from their second studio album Tired of Hanging Around (2006). Released as the album’s second single on 19 June 2006 in the United Kingdom, along with their previous single “Why Won’t You Give Me Your Love?“, it gave The Zutons their joint-biggest single to date as well as their second UK top 10 single, climbing from number 41 (through download sales alone the day before physical release) to its peak at number 9 in the UK Singles Chart. A 2007 cover version by Mark Ronson and Amy Winehouse was more successful than the original, peaking at number 2 on the UK chart and number 1 in the Netherlands.
In an interview with The Scotsman in May 2008, lead singer Dave McCabe described the writing process of the song: “I could tell you I was inspired by gazing out across the Mersey or walking past Macca’s old house, but the truth is I got the idea in a cab on the way to my mum’s. The whole song was written before I got there, so 20 minutes, max”. The song’s title and theme refer to an American friend of McCabe’s who was in trouble for driving under the influence. The band’s drummer, Sean Payne, called it a “musical postcard to her, saying he’s having a hard time and can she come over and see him”.
The song was used by ITV during the 2006 FIFA World Cup, alongside Primal Scream‘s “Country Girl” and Kasabian‘s cover of David Bowie‘s 1977 song “Heroes“. Both the original and Mark Ronson version featured in British soap opera Emmerdale during the wedding of Eric and Val Pollard in 2008″.
