Wishin' & Hopin'

Mel says, KAYA!

Wishin’ and Hopin’ was originally by Dusty Springfield and covered by Ani DiFranco in My Best Friend’s Wedding soundtrack. Here are the lyrics for this fun song. Enjoy!

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

So if you’re looking for love you can share
All you gotta to 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 that he likes to do.
Wear your hair just for him cause
You won’t get him thinkin’ and prayin'
Wishin’ and 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 thinking how great true love is
All you gotta to is hold him and kiss him and squeeze him and love him.
Yeah just do it!
And after you do, you will be his.

You gotta show him that you care just for him.
Do the things that he likes to do.
Wear your hair just for him cause’
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 thinking how great true love is!
All you gotta to is hold him’ and kiss him’ and squeeze him’ and love him.
Yeah just do it!
And after you do’ you will be his.

You will be his.

You will be his!

Hi Mel, I love this song, although I was surprised that Ani di Franco did a cover of it. Hahaha. I'm sure she was singing it tongue in cheek. It's fun, and your LO certainly captured that spirit.
