Valley of Love

Hey, listen everybody
I’ve got a little story to tell
It’s about a place so naughty
You might know it oh so well.

From East to West this valley
Is known as a place of sin
Where a bunch of peasants started
Shooting sex on film!

Living in the valley, the peasant valley
Where we like to party everyday.
Grooving in the valley, the funky valley;
Loving with your body, the peasant way!

West Hills, Reseda, Van Nuys,
Will stay in History
As the places where the peasants
Ran this sexy industry.

It started back in those times
When it was not so tough
To make a name in movies
Shot in the Valley of Love.


The Valley was the place to be,
Where you went for fun.
Hot cars, groovy music, people to see,
Are those days really gone?
