Do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do

[Verse 1]
Every night before I go to sleep
I close my eyes and pray
And I thank The Lord
That once again
I made it through the day
I let Him know that I appreciate
The many blessings from above
And I pray that He will send to me
The one I really love

[Pre-Chorus]
I’ve been trying to make him notice me
I’ve been trying to make him care
I’ve been trying to show him how I feel
He isn’t really aware
That I’m dying to be his everything
That he’s all I’m thinking of
That I’m yearning for him desperately
Oh I’m rеally falling in love

 

[Chorus]
I’m workin’ hard (Gotta make him love mе)
Gotta make him care (Make him want my love)
Heaven up above me
This is my only prayer (Got me workin’, workin’ baby)
Gotta make this feeling
Something that we share (Want my love)
Gotta make him love me (Hey)
This is my only prayer

Do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do (Hey)
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do

[Verse 2]
Every day I contemplate another way
To make him mine
All my life’s a crazy game
I guess I’m just a silly child
He doesn’t even look at me
He doesn’t know that I’m alive
But I know that eventually
I’ll have him by my side

[Chorus]
I’m workin’ hard (Gotta make him love me)
Gotta make him care (Make him want my love)
Heaven up above me
This is my only prayer (Got me workin’ workin’ baby baby)
Gotta make this feeling (Oh)
Something that we share (Eh)
Gotta make him love me
This is my only prayer (I’m workin’)
