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
