“A Lover’s Prayer” Lyrics

Don’t send no young girls to love me
With their eyes shining bright
All the young girls afraid of me
Send me a woman tonight

Ah, please answer my prayer, Lord
Please answer my prayer

Don’t send me no hand-holding baby
I been in babies before
Don’t send me nobody that’s crazy, Lord
Don’t send me no young girls any more

I was entertaining this little girl up in my room ’fore
California wines and French perfumes, Lord
Now she started talking ’bout the war, Lord
I said, “I don’t wanna talk about the war”
Oh, please answer my prayer

Don’t send me nobody wearing glasses
Don’t want no one above me, yeah
Don’t send me nobody taking night classes
Just send somebody to love me

I was entertaining this little girl up in my rooms, Lord
I had California wines and French perfumes, Lord
She started talking ’bout the war, Lord
I said, “I don’t wanna talk about the war”
Please answer my prayer
Ah, please answer my prayer, Lord
Please answer my prayer, Lord
Please answer my prayer
