Every was a little girl
I had a rag doll
The only doll I've ever owned

And 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 higher

Day by day
Do I love you? My oh my
River deep - mountain high
Yeah, yeah, yeah
If I lost you would I cry?
Oh, how I love you baby
Baby, baby, baby

Cameron: Ow!

Note: The lyrics in italics were sang wrongly by the contenders.


  • Lindsay messed up the lyrics singing "Every" instead of "When I" on the first line.
  • This song was performed by Amber Riley and Naya Rivera on episode 4 of Season 2 of Glee.
