Iowa folk musician Greg Brown performs “Say A Little Prayer.” From album “One More Goodnight Kiss.” LYRICS The lights on In the middle of the night There’s a sick little child around Momma said to Poppa “Don’t you worry, I think her fever’s coming down.” [chorus:] Oh yes and I know, it’s just a cold or it’s just the flu But I say a little prayer,I say a little prayer for you I say a little prayer, I say a little prayer for you Let her get better, let her get better soon please. Put Aretha Franklin on Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up, turn it up In the middle of the night Cause that’ll do as much good As any medicine To make her feel alright [repeat chorus] Momma been a walkin with ya Poppa been a walkin with ya Walkin up and down the hallway Look out the window See the city lights shining When you’re sick you look so tiny I’m gonna put you in my pocket Go down to where it’s warmer I’m gonna throw you in the ocean And you will turn into a dolphin And when you get all better You will swim back to me [repeat chorus] Let her get better Let her sister get better too Let em get better so I can get better too. I say a little prayer. I say a little prayer. I say a little prayer. I say a little prayer. (c) 1988 Red House.
