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.
