  • Deeper and deeper, and deeper, and deeper
    Sweeter and sweeter, and sweeter, and sweeter

    I can't help falling in love
    I fall deeper and deeper the further I go
    Kisses sent from heaven above
    They get sweeter and sweeter the more that I know

    When you know the notes to sing
    You can sing most anything
    That's what my mama told me
    Round and round and round you go
    When you find love you'll always know
    I let my father mold me

    Daddy couldn't be all wrong
    (Not gonna let you slip away, I'm gonna be there)
    And my mama made me learn this song
    (You're gonna bring your love to me, I'm gonna get you)
    That's why

    I can't help falling in love
    I fall deeper and deeper the further I go
    Kisses sent from heaven above
    They get sweeter and sweeter the more that I know

    The deeper I go
    All is fair in love she said
    Think with your heart, not with your head
    That's what my mama told me
    All the little things you do
    Will end up coming back to you
    I let my father mold me

    Daddy couldn't be all wrong
    (Not gonna let you slip away, I'm gonna be there)
    And my mama made me learn this song
    (You're gonna bring your love to me, I'm gonna get you)
    That's why

    I can't help falling in love
    I fall deeper and deeper the further I go
    Kisses sent from heaven above
    They get sweeter and sweeter the more that I know

    Someone said that romance was dead
    And I believed it instead of remembering
    What my mama told me
    Let my father mold me
    Then you tried to hold me
    You remind me what they said
    This feeling inside
    I can't explain
    But my love is alive
    And I'm never gonna hide it again

    Daddy couldn't be all wrong
    (Not gonna let you slip away, I'm gonna be there)
    And my mama made me learn this song
    (You're gonna bring your love to me, I'm gonna get you)
    That's why

    I can't help falling in love
    I fall deeper and deeper the further I go
    Kisses sent from heaven above
    They get sweeter and sweeter the more that I know

    Deeper and deeper, and deeper, and deeper
    Never gonna hide it again
    Sweeter and sweeter, and sweeter, and sweeter
    Never gonna have to pretend

    You got to just let your body move to the music
    You got to just let your body go with the flow
    Falling in love, falling in love, falling in love
    I can't keep from falling in love with you
    You know there's nothing better that I'd like to do Writer/s: Anthony Shimkin, Madonna Ciccone, Shep Pettibone

  • Dr. Kuku from HanoiThis is a coming-out anthem for MANY people. It's quite straightforward, so not sure what the other comments are about, but they look like straight-n-narrow folks projecting their fears.
  • Leo from Westminster 1, MdSadness and Euphoria-Deeper and Deeper. Yet another Madonna tune about her mother's death. Kind of like Vogue-Part 2, only much sadder!
  • Kevin from Mobile, AlDeeper into the mine or the behind?
  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnExcellent dance track.
  • Aaron from Des Moines, Iathis song is actually about a miner coming to terms with his homosexuality.
    "Deeper and Deeper" is what he sings as he goes into the mine.
