Musicals – Whistle Down The Wind - I Never Get What I Pray For lyrics

[Swallow]
I wanna be baptised and I wanna be saved
I wanna see my saviour face to face
I wanna feel the rapture, feel the fire
I wanna be taken someplace higher
But I never get taken to someplace higher

[Brat]
Swallow!

[Swallow]
Well I don't!
I never get what I pray for
I can pray for less or a whole lot more

[Swallow, Poor Baby & Brat]
It don't ever matter, it's a sure bet
That I never get what I pray for

[Swallow]
An end to the horrors of the atom bomb

[Brat]
And a dance with Ricky Nelson at the homecoming prom
I wanna be beautiful, sexy and smart

[Poor Baby]
I wanna sister that don't hiccup

[Brat]
I want a brother that don't fart

[Poor Baby]
I wanna move like Elvis in every way

[Brat]
I wanna look like Sandra Dee or maybe Doris Day

[Swallow]
They should send us down some angels
We could never have enough

[Brat]
They should send us down some money

[Swallow, Poor Baby & Brat]
So we can buy each other stuff.
I never get what I pray for
I can pray for less or a whole lot more
It don't ever matter, it's a sure bet
That I never get what I pray for

[Brat]
We should all be praying for dad
It's scary how he's been

[Poor Baby]
He was crying in the trailer

[Brat]
No way I was going in

[Poor Baby]
I want a football

[Brat]
And some Lipstick

[Poor Baby]
And some Liquorice

[Brat]
And a kite

[Swallow]
And I just want our mother back, If only for one night
There are things she's gotta tell me
There are things she's gotta know
God had no right to take her, She had no right to go
There are things I didn't tell her
And so much I had to say
So I just want my mother back
If only for one day
