My Best Friend`s Wedding – Say A Little Prayer For You Lyrics     (  http://www.lyricsfreak.com)


Say a little prayer for you
Me, I go, say a little prayer for you

From the moment me wake up
Before me put on me makeup
Me say a little prayer for you

Me combing me hair now
Me, I wonder which dress be wear now, ooh
Me say a little prayer for you

Forever and ever you'll stay in my heart and I'll love you
Forever and ever, we never will part, I'll love you
Together, together, that's how it should be without you
Would only mean heartbreak for me, ooh

Me run for the bus, love, me I ride, me I think of us, love
Me say a little prayer for you
At work, I just take time and all through my coffee break time, ho
Me say a little prayer for you, oh

Forever and ever you'll stay in my heart and I'll love you
Forever and ever, we never will part and I'll love you
Together, together, that's how it should be without you
Would only mean heartbreak for me, ooh

Say a little prayer for you
Me, I go, say a little prayer for you

My darling, believe me
For me there is no one but you
Say you love me, too, oh

Forever and ever you'll stay in my heart and I'll love you
Forever and ever, we never will part, I'll love you
Together, together, that's how it should be to live, without you

Forever and ever you'll stay in my heart and I'll love you
Forever and ever, we never will part, I'll love you
Together, together, that's how it should be, without you
Would only mean heartbreak for me

Forever and ever you'll stay in my heart and I'll love you
Forever and ever, we never will part and I'll love you
Together, together, that's how it should be, without you

Forever and ever you'll stay in my heart forever and ever
Forever and ever
Together, together, that's how it should be, to live without you
Would only mean heartbreak for you

Forever and ever you'll stay in my heart and I'll love you
Forever and ever, we never will part and I'll love you
Together, together, that's how it should be and I'll love you

Forever and ever

Ella Fitzgerald - Begin The Beguine                         Flashback (First posted on October 28, 2012)

Begin the Beguine - Dionne Warwick

Fonte: http://www.seeklyrics.com


When they begin the beguine
It brings back the sound of music so tender
It brings back a night of tropical splendor
It brings back a memory ever green

I'm with you once more under the stars
And down by the shore an orchestra's playing
And even the palms they seem to be swaying
When they begin the beguine

To live it again is past all endeavor
Except when that tune clutches my heart
And there we are, swearing to love forever
And promising never, never to part

What moments divine, what rapture serene
Till clouds came along to disperse the joys we had tasted
And now when I hear people curse the chance that we wasted
I know but too well what they mean

So don't let them begin the beguine
Let the love that once was a fire remain an ember
Let it sleep like the dead desire I only remember
Oh, when they begin the beguine

Oh yes, let them begin the beguine, make them play
Till the stars that were there before return above you
Till you whisper to me once more, "Darling, I love you"
And suddenly know what heaven we're in

Yes, when they begin the beguine
When they begin the beguine
When they begin the beguine

Let the love that once was a fire remain an ember
Let it sleep like the dead desire I only remember
Remain an ember, oh, memory ever green
When they begin, begin the beguine

Let the love that once was a fire remain an ember
Memory, remain an ember
