Andrew Lloyd Webber – Whistle Down The Wind – I Never Get What I Pray For lyrics


[Swallow]
I wanna be baptised and I wanna be saved
I wanna see my saviour face to face
I wanna feel the rapture, feel the fire
I wanna be taken someplace higher
But I never get taken to someplace higher

[Brat]
Swallow!

[Swallow]
Well I don’t!
I never get what I pray for
I can pray for less or a whole lot more

[Swallow, Poor Baby & Brat]
It don’t ever matter, it’s a sure bet
That I never get what I pray for

[Swallow]
An end to the horrors of the atom bomb

[Brat]
And a dance with Ricky Nelson at the homecoming prom
I wanna be beautiful, sexy and smart

[Poor Baby]
I wanna sister that don’t hiccup

[Brat]
I want a brother that don’t fart

[Poor Baby]
I wanna move like Elvis in every way

[Brat]
I wanna look like Sandra Dee or maybe Doris Day

[Swallow]
They should send us down some angels
We could never have enough

[Brat]
They should send us down some money

[Swallow, Poor Baby & Brat]
So we can buy each other stuff.
I never get what I pray for
I can pray for less or a whole lot more
It don’t ever matter, it’s a sure bet
That I never get what I pray for

[Brat]
We should all be praying for dad
It’s scary how he’s been

[Poor Baby]
He was crying in the trailer

[Brat]
No way I was going in

[Poor Baby]
I want a football

[Brat]
And some Lipstick

[Poor Baby]
And some Liquorice

[Brat]
And a kite

[Swallow]
And I just want our mother back, If only for one night
There are things she’s gotta tell me
There are things she’s gotta know
God had no right to take her, She had no right to go
There are things I didn’t tell her
And so much I had to say
So I just want my mother back
If only for one day


Wham! – Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go


You put the boom boom into my heart,
You send my soul sky high when your lovin’ starts.
Jitterbug into my brain,
Goes bang bang bang till my feet do the same.

But something’s bugging me
Something ain’t right
My best friend told me
What you did last night.

Left me sleeping
In my bed.
I was dreaming
But I should’ve been with you instead.

CHORUS
Wake me up before you go go,
Don’t leave me hanging on like a yo-yo.
Wake me up before you go go,
I don’t wanna miss it when you hit that high
Wake me up before you go go,
‘Cause I’m not planning on going solo.
Wake me up before you go go,
Take me dancing tonite.
I wanna hit that high…

You get the gray skies outta my way,
You make the sun shine brighter than Doris Day.
Turn a bright spark into a flame,
My beats per minute never been the same.

‘Cause you’re my lady,
I’m your fool.
Makes me crazy
When you act so cruel.

C’mon baby,
Let’s not fight.
We’ll go dancing
And everything will be alright.

REPEAT CHORUS

Cuddle up baby,
Move in tight.
We’ll go dancing tomorrow night.

It’s cold out there
But it’s warm in bed.
They can dance,
We’ll stay home instead.
