"Wishin' and Hopin'" as written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David....
Wishin'
And hopin'
And thinkin'
And prayin'
Planning
And dreamin'
His kisses will start
That won't get you into his heart

So if you're looking for love
You can share
All you gotta to is hold him
And kiss him
And love him
And show him that you care

Show him that you care
Just for him.
Do the things that he likes to do
Wear your hair
Just for him
'Cause you won't get him
Thinkin' and a prayin'
Wishin' and a hopin'

'Cause wishin'
And hopin'
And thinkin'
And prayin'
Planning
And dreamin'
His kisses will start.
That won't get you into his heart

So if you're thinking how great
True love is,
All you gotta do is
Hold him
And kiss him
And squeeze him
And love him
Just do it
And after you do
You will be his

Show him that you care
Just for him
Do the things
That he likes to do
Wear your hair
Just for him
'Cause, you won't get him
Thinkin' and a prayin'
Wishin' and a hopin'

'Cause wishin'
And hopin'
And thinkin'
And prayin'
Planning
And dreamin'
His kisses will start
That won't get you into his heart

So if you're thinking how great true love is
All you gotta do is hold him
And kiss him
And squeeze him
And love him
Just do it
And after you do
You will be his

You, will, be, his
You will be his!

    General CommentThis is such an unusual song for Ani to cover. Has she given any statements about it? I would assume she was using it in a facetious tone.

    General CommentI heard that she just did the song because one of her friends was a producer or director or something of the movie that the song was featured in, My Bestfriend's Wedding.
