Lyrics

La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la

Although you don't want me no more
Oh, but it's alright, alright with me
'Cause you know, you're gonna want me some day
Yes, you will want me, and I'll run away

Oh Valarie, (Valarie),
Valarie, (Valarie),
Valarie
Don't you want me, don't you need me

Valarie,
Valarie,
Valarie,
Valarie

Although you don't want me no more
Oh, but it's alright, it's alright with me
'Cause you know, you're gonna want me some day
Oh you will want me, and I'll run away

Oh Valarie, (Valarie),
Valarie, (Valarie),
Valarie,
Valarie
