Lyrics:

(I say a little prayer for you)
The moment I wake up
Before I put on my makeup (Makeup)
I say a little (Prayer for you)
And while I'm combing my hair now
And wondering what dress to wear now (Wear now)
I say a little (Prayer for you)

(Forever) Forever, (And ever) yeah
(You'll stay in my heart and I will love you)
(Forever) Forever, (And ever) ever
(We never will part, oh, how I love you)
(Together) Together, (Together) together
(That's how it must be to live without you)
(Would only mean heartbreak for me)

I run for the bus, dear
But while riding I think of us, dear (Us, dear)
I say a little (Prayer for you)
And at work I just take time
And all through my coffee break time (Break time)
I say a little (Prayer for you)

(Forever) Forever, (Ever) Ever
(You'll stay in my heart and I will love you)
(Forever) Forever, (Ever) Ever
(We never will part, oh, how I love you)
(Together) Together, (Together) together
(That's how it must be to live without you)
(Would only mean heartbreak for me)
Nobody but me

(Forever) Forever, (Ever) ever
(You'll stay in my heart and I will love you)
(Forever) Forever, (Ever) ever
(We never will part, oh, how I love you)
(Together) Together, (together) together
(That's how it must be to live without you)
(Would only mean heartbreak for me)

My darling, believe me (Believe me)
For me, there is no one but you
Please love me too
I'm in love with you (Answer my prayer)
Answer my prayer, baby (Answer my prayer)
Say you'll love me too (Answer my prayer)
Answer my prayer, baby (Answer my prayer)

And (Forever) Forever, (And ever) ever
(You'll stay in my heart and I will love you) Ever
(Forever) Forever, (And ever) ever
(We never will part, oh, how I love you)
(Together) Together, (Together) together
(That's how it must be to live without you)
(Would only mean heartbreak for me)
For nobody but me

My darling, believe me (Believe me)
For me, there is no one but you
Please love me too

This is my prayer (Answer my prayer, baby)
Answer my prayer now, baby (Answer my prayer, baby)
This is my prayer (Answer my prayer, baby)
Answer it right now, baby (Answer my prayer, baby)
Say you'll love me too (Answer my prayer, baby)
This is my prayer, baby (Answer my prayer, baby)
I'm in love with you (Answer my prayer)

*******************

An icon of 20th and 21st century music, the voice of the civil rights movement, and the undisputed Queen of Soul—there is only one Aretha Franklin. In her incredible six-decade career, Aretha evolved from teenage gospel star to reigning pop and R&B diva, recording classics like “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,” “Chain Of Fools”, “Think” (lyrics by Aretha Franklin), definitive versions of the songs “Respect” and “I Say a Little Prayer”, and global hits like “Freeway Of Love,” “I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)”, and “A Rose Is Still A Rose.”

Altogether, 112 of her singles reached the charts, with 20 No. 1 R&B singles, the most ever by a female artist. She won 18 Grammy Awards (including the first eight trophies for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance) and, out of recognition for her for indelible contribution to American music and culture, received both the Presidential Medal Of Freedom and a Pulitzer Prize.
