Amy Winehouse Lyrics. 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 paint 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 don't you come on over, Valerie? Valerie 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'll find the right man who'll fix it for ya Are you shopping anywhere Changed the color of your hair, are you busy? And did you have to pay that fine That you were dodging all the time, are you still dizzy? 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 don't you come on over, Valerie?

THE real Valerie from Amy Winehouse's hit song has finally been unmasked and has shed some light on what the lyrics really mean. Celebrity make-up artist, Valerie Star, opened up in a recent interview about how she had been the inspiration behind the original Zutons track after dating frontman Dave McCabe. And the narrative of the song focuses on the long-distance relationship between Valerie and Dave after the make-up artist was banned from moving to the UK. Valerie details how she came to meet the band's frontman in a bar in Florida, where she bought him a drink after watching the him play and the relationship continued as she would arrange to meet him in different cities. However, the inspiration behind the lyrics came when Valerie was due to move to Liverpool to be with the singer and was unable to, due to an arrest that stopped her from entering the country. She admitted: "I got arrested the week before I was going to go to Liverpool to be with him. It was my, I want to say, seventh felony driving on a suspended license. So the line which Amy sing's about getting a "good lawyer" is in fact talking about the legal battle that followed.
In an interview with The Scotsman in May , 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 is having a hard time and can she come over and see him. She explained that she met McCabe and how she got arrested for driving on a suspended license. The music video was directed by Scott Lyon. It is set in a prison and features The Zutons trying to escape. Singer and director Jordan Galland plays the electric piano on this single. Rolling Stone called the cover Winehouse's only "notable recording" after Back to Black.
Well, sometimes I go out by myself And I look across the water And I think of all the things of what you're doing In my head I paint a picture. Since I've come home Well, my body's been a mess And I miss your ginger hair And the way you like to dress. Oh, won't you come on over? Stop making a fool out of me Why don't you come on over, Valerie? Did you have to go to jail? Put your house out up for sale? Did you get a good lawyer?
