The Lyrics

Down in my Val'rie, Val'rie so low
Late in the evening, that's where I'd go
Sometimes when we'd love, she let wind blow
But I forgave here, 'cause I loved her so..

Rose was my first love, Violet was two
Valerie's my third love, fourth could be you

If I don't please you, love whom you please
Promise me you won't.. give me disease
Give no disease love, give no disease
I don't need Herpes, give no disease

Val wrote a letter, sent it by mail
(How else would you send a letter?)
Addressed it Bernie, that's me, in jail
Bernie's in jail, love..Bernie's in jail
Addressed it Bernie, to me, in jail

She built a ladder, forty feet tall
Now I can climb out, over the wall
Meet me outside, me outside
I'll be wearin' orange, this is your guide

Down in my Val'rie, once more, I'll go
It will be so nice to hear her wind blow
