TEENAGE PRAYER, A
(Reichner / Love)
as recorded by Gale Storm
My friends all know it, how I adore him,
I've whispered to angels what I'd do for him,
He is the answer to a teenage prayer!
He won't go steady, the crowd has told me,
But I keep waiting to have him hold me,
Why won't you listen to a teenage prayer?
I wait by the window at seven
And chill when my thrill passes by.
His kiss could send me to heaven,
Into his heart I could fly!
My girlfriend Betty tells me he's lazy,
But I know Betty loves him like crazy!
He is the answer to a teenage prayer,
Yes, he is the answer to a teenage prayer!
