"Wishin' and Hopin'" is a song, written by Hal David and Burt Bacharach, which was a Top 10 hit for Dusty Springfield in 1964. The song was first recorded by Dionne Warwick and was the B-side of Warwick's single "This Empty Place" in the spring of 1963; the track was also featured on Warwick's debut album Presenting Dionne Warwick. Warwick's rendition became a charting single in France, reaching #79 in 1963.

Presenting Dionne is an album notable for including "Don't Make Me Over", Warwick's debut single, "Wishin' & Hopin'", which would become a hit for Dusty Springfield in 1964, "It's Love That Really Counts", which brought Warwick to the attention of Scepter owner Florence Greenberg, and "Make It Easy on Yourself".

Wishin' and hopin' and thinkin' and prayin'
Plannin' and dreamin' each night of his charms
That won't get you into his arms

So if you're lookin' to find love, you can share
All you gotta do is
Hold him and kiss him and love him
And show him that you care

Show him that you care just for him
Do the things he likes to do
Wear your hair just for him
'Cau-au-ause, you won't get him
Thinkin' and a-prayin'
Wishin' and a-hopin'

'Cause wishin' and hopin' and thinkin' and prayin'
Plannin' and dreamin' his kisses will star-art
That won't get you into his heart

So if you're thinkin' how great true love is
All you gotta do is
Hold him and kiss him and squeeze him and love
Yeah, just do it, and after you do, you will be his

You gotta show him that you care just for him
And do the things that he likes to do
Wear your hair just for him
'Cau-au-ause, you won't get him
Thinkin' and a-prayin'
Wishin' and a-hopin'

'Cause wishin' and hopin' and thinkin' and prayin'
Plannin' and dreamin' his kisses will start
That won't get you into his heart

So if you're thinkin' how great true love-ove is
All you gotta do is
Hold him and kiss him and squeeze him and love
Yeah, just do it, and after you do, you will be his
You will be hi-is
You will be hi-i-is
