Una bellissima canzone d’amore (famosa anche nella versione di Aretha Franklin, di un anno successiva) che, nelle intenzioni del suo autore, Hal David, voleva essere la preghiera di una donna per il ritorno dell’amato dalla guerra in Vietnam (fonte: en.wikipedia). David, come dimostra pure un’altra canzone dell’album, The Windows of the World, era molto preoccupato per la guerra, anche perché all’epoca aveva due figli in età da soldato.
Ooh...ooh...ooh...

The moment I wake up
Before I put on my makeup
I say a little prayer for you
While combin’ my hair now
And wonderin’ 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 and ever we never will part
Oh, how I’ll love you
Together, together, 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, forever 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, together, 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

Forever, forever 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, together, that’s how it must be
To live without you
Would only mean heartbreak for me

My darling, believe me
For me there is no one but you
Please love me too
I’m in love with you
Answer my prayer
Say you love me too
Why don’t you answer my prayer
You know every day I say a little prayer
I said I say, I say a little prayer
