Aretha Franklin – I Say A Little Prayer For You- Hollywood Palace – 1968

Par défaut

C’est aujourd’hui qu’ont lieu les obsèques de Whitney Houston et il a été dit qu’Aretha Franklin y sera pour chanter en son honneur.

The moment I wake up
Before I put on my makeup
I say a little pray for you
While combing my hair now,
And wondering what dress to wear now,
I say a little prayer for you

Forever, and ever, you’ll stay in my heart
and I will love you
Forever, and ever, we never will part
Oh, how I love you
Together, forever, that’s how it must be
To live without you
Would only meen 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, and ever, 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, forever, 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

My darling believe me, ( beleive me)
For me there is no one but you!
Please love me too (answer his pray)
And I’m in love with you (answer his pray)
Answer my prayer now babe (answer his pray)

Forever, and ever, 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, forever, that’s how it must be
To live without you
Would only mean heartbreak for me (oooooooooh) 

  1. A Piece of Us: To Whitney and the Millions of Invisible Black Girls and Women Who Struggle with Addiction. February 16, 2012

    In the end, Whitney’s voice, the conviction and soulful way in which she sang, gave us an enduring gift. Like it did for my generation, her message and her voice will continue to give new generations the energy, inspiration and rejuvenation they need to keep fighting the good fight. I am sorry that we were not deliberate in showing Whitney that we loved her while she was still with us. Hopefully, her story and music will help create a path to healing for millions of other black girls and women. Travel well, Whitney. You will have to fight no more.

    -Whitney Houston: my love is your love

    (clap your hands, ya’ll it’ alright) (4 times)

    If tomorrow is a judgement day (sing mommy)
    And I’m standin’ on the front line
    And the Lord ask me what I did with my life
    I will say I spent it with you

    If I wake up in World War 3
    I see destruction and poverty
    And I feel like I want to go home
    It’s okay if you comin’ with me

    (clap your hands, ya’ll it’s alright) (4 times)

    ‘Cause your love is my love
    and my love is your love
    It would take an eternity to break us
    And the chains of Amistad couldn’t hold us (2 times)

    (clap your hands, ya’ll it’s alright) (2 times)

    If I lose my fame and fortune
    And I’m homeless on the street
    And I’m sleepin’ in Grand Central Station
    It’s okay if you’re sleepin’ with me

    (clap your hands, ya’ll its alright….) (2 times)

    As the years they pass us by
    we stay young through each other’s eyes
    And no matter how old we get
    It’s okay as long as I got you babe

    (clap your hands, ya’ll it’s alright) (2 times)

    ‘Cause your love is my love
    and my love is your love
    It would take an eternity to break us
    And the chains of Amistad couldn’t hold us (2 times)

    If I should die this very day
    Don’t cry, cause on earth we wasn’t meant to stay
    And no matter what people say
    I’ll be waiting for you after judgement day

    ‘Cause your love is my love
    and my love is your love
    It would take an eternity to break us
    And the chains of Amistad couldn’t hold us (2 times)
