Aretha Franklin – I say a little prayer

“I Say a Little Prayer” is a song written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David for Dionne Warwick, originally peaking at number four on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 pop singles chart in December 1967.
The song was Dionne Warwick’s second single from her Scepter Records album The Windows Of The World, following the LP’s title track. The tune reached #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #8 on the Billboard R & B Chart in December 1967, and #4 on the Canadian Charts and was a certified US million seller by the RIAA. The single later appeared on the LP Dionne Warwick’s Golden Hits, Part Two and is considered one of Warwick’s signature songs. The flip or “B-side” of the single (Theme from) Valley of the Dolls was also a million seller and rode the #2 position for 4 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 and CashBox singles chart and the # 1 position on the Record World Top 40 Chart in February 1968. “I Say a Little Prayer” b/w “(Theme from) Valley of the Dolls”, became one of the most successful double-sided hits of the Rock era. Like several Bacharach compositions, both sides contains passages written in unusual time signatures. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Aretha Franklin – I say a little prayer Lyrics:
The moment I wake up.
Before I put on my makeup.
I say a little pray for you.
While combing my hair now.
And wondering what dress to wear now.
I say a little prayer for you.

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

I say a little prayer for you.
I say a little prayer for you.

My darling, believe me.
(Believe me).
For me there is no one but you.
Please love me too.
(Answer his pray).
And I’m in love with you.
(Answer his pray).
Answer my prayer now, babe.
(Answer his pray).

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