Singalong! River Deep, Mountain High by Tina Turner

My friend has been sending me videos from his trip to Vegas to see Celine Dion, including several clips of her singing River Deep Mountain High. Now, I LOVE Celine, and I love her cover of this song because she really gives in and goes crazy every time she performs it. HOWEVER, nothing beats Tina's original performance of the song. Listening to this made me realize I need to listen to some more early Tina Turner.



RIVER DEEP, MOUNTAIN HIGH
Tina Turner

When I was a little girl
I had a rag doll
Only doll I've ever owned
Now I love you just the way I loved that rag doll
But only now my love has grown

And it gets stronger, in every way
And it gets deeper, let me say
And it gets higher, day by day

And do I love you my oh my
Yeah river deep mountain high
If I lost you would I cry
Oh how I love you baby, baby, baby, baby

When you were a young boy
Did you have a puppy
That always followed you around
Well I'm gonna be as faithful as that puppy
No I'll never let you down

Cause it grows stronger, like a river flows
And it gets bigger baby, and heaven knows
And it gets sweeter baby, as it grows

And do I love you my oh my
Yeah river deep, mountain high
If I lost you would I cry
Oh how I love you baby, baby, baby, baby

I love you baby like a flower loves the spring
And I love you baby just like Robin loves to sing
And I love you baby like a school boy loves his pet
And I love you baby, river deep mountain high

Do I love you my oh my, oh baby
River deep, mountain high
If I lost you would I cry
Oh how I love you baby, baby, baby, baby
