[Verse 1]
Em7               Am7
     The moment I wake up,
             C/D   Gmaj7
Before I put on my make-up, (Make-up!)
   C                              B     B7
I say a little... (...prayer for you!)
Em7                       Am7
     And while combing my hair, now,
                    C/D    Gmaj7
And wondering what dress to wear, now, (Wear now!)
   C                              B    B7
I say a little... (...prayer for you!)


[Chorus]
       C        D7           Bm7        Em7
For - ever and ever, you'll stay in my heart,
            Dm7  G
And I will love you,
       C        D7      Bm7        Em7
For - ever and ever, we never will part,
              Dm7  G
Oh, how I'll love you,
       C            D7           Bm7        Em7
To - gether, to - gether, that's how it must be,
               Dm7   G
To live with - out you...
          C        D             B
...Would only be heart-break for me!
     B          B7
    Humm------, humm-------!

[Verse 2]
Em7                Am7
     I run for the bus, dear,
                      C/D    Gmaj7
Well, while riding I think of us, dear, (Us, dear!)
   C                              B    B7
I say a little... (...prayer for you!)
Em7                     Am7
     And at work I just take time,
                   C/D    Gmaj7
And all through my coffee break-time, (Break-time!)
   C                              B    B7
I say a little... (...prayer for you!)

For - ever and ever, you'll stay in my heart,
           Dm7   G
And I will love you,
       C        D7       Bm7       Em7
For - ever and ever, we never will part,
              Dm7  G
Oh, how I'll love you,
       C            D7           Bm7        Em7
To - gether, to - gether, that's how it must be,

To live with - out you...
          C        D             B
