I'LL WAIT AND PRAY
Sarah Vaughan


I'll wait and pray
Just for the day
When you come back to me once again;
Oh, my love is true,
Only for you, sweetheart!

All through the day,
In every way,
My heart cries that it won't ever stray,
For, happy or blue,
I'm all for you, sweetheart!

Beat of a dear,
You being near,
Just for a day or a week.
Love's thrill divine,
Ooh, would be mine;
Yo bring the joy that I seek!

I'm so darned lonesome, oh my!
I want to cry,
But your shoulder's so far far away!
But I'll wait and pray
To hurry the day
When you'll come back to me!

I'm so darned lonesome, oh my!
I want to cry,
But your shoulder's so far far away!
But I'll wait and pray
To hurry the day
When you'll come back to me!
