"I Say A Little Prayer" as written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David....
The moment I wake up
Before I put on my makeup
I say a little prayer for you
While combing my hair, now,
And wondering what dress to wear, now,
I say a little prayer for you

Forever, forever, you'll stay in my heart
And I will love you
Forever, forever, we never will part
Oh, how I'll love you
Together, together, that's how it must be
To live without you
Would only be heartbreak for me.

I run for the bus, dear,
While riding I think of us, dear,
I say a little prayer for you.
At work I just take time
And all through my coffee break-time,
I say a little prayer for you.

Forever, forever, you'll stay in my heart
And I will love you
Forever, forever we never will part
Oh, how I'll love you
Together, together, that's how it must be
To live without you
Would only be heartbreak for me.

My darling believe me,
For me there is no one
But you.

    General Commenti cant believe only one other perosn has commented on this song!
    it is about longing for someone, and thinking about them, but most of all praying every spare moment for them to want you.

    General Commenti love this song! it has to be one of my all time favourites, but i only got into it after hearing 'gene' do a live cover of it. then of course it was a man singing but he changed the words slightly (like 'dress') so it didnt sound too bizarre. it is very rare for me to like any cover versions which just shows that this is a great song and that gene are a geat band who can do it justice. this is just my round about way of plugging gene. check out their lyrics, theyre great.

    General CommentSuprised this song has so few comments. One of the classic's from the 60's.
    Excellent song of love and hope from a time when life was simplier.
