Valleri

(Tommy Boyce/Bobby Hart)

Lead Vocal: Davy Jones
Produced By: Tommy Boyce & Bobby Hart
Recorded At: RCA Victor Studio A, Hollywood
Recording Date: August 6, 1966

The second album's sessions involved many different producers and resulted in a great deal of unused tracks. One of these tracks is "Valleri," which achieved legendary status when DJs in Chicago and Florida turned it into a hit by airing tapes made from broadcasts of the TV show. However, this version of the song was not released until 1990's Missing Links, Vol.2. Davy sings the lead vocal, and the track was later rerecorded. Davy also released a version on his 1988 cassette Incredible!

Lyrics:

Valleri. I love my Valleri.

There's a girl I know who makes me feel so good.
And I wouldn't live without her, even if I could.
They call her Valleri.
I love my Valleri.

[Instrumental]

She's the same little girl who used to hang around my door.
But she sure looks different than the way she looked before.
I call her Valleri.
I love my Valleri.

[Instrumental]

Valleri. I love my Valleri.
I love my Valleri.
I need ya, Valleri.
