Lyrics

(Source: as heard)

Birds in have their quiet nests,
Foxes in their own holes,
Man have a peaceful rest.
He have nowhere to lie his head.
He prayed, yes, He prayed.
He prayed, yes, He prayed.
He prayed, yes, He prayed.
Yes, He prayed.
He prayed, yes, He prayed
For I and you, you,
For I and you.
He prayed, yes, He prayed.
Yes, He prayed.
Yes, yes, He prayed.
Yes, He prayed, yes, He prayed.
For I and you, you.
Yes, He prayed for I and you.
He prayed, yes, He prayed.
You've gots to believe me that He prayed.
You've gots to hear what I say; He prayed.
Yes, He prayed, He prayed.
Yes, He prayed, yes, He prayed,
Yes, He prayed, yes, He prayed,
Yes, He prayed, yes, He prayed,
Yes, He prayed, yes, He prayed.
For I and you, for I and you,
For I and you, you,
For I and you.
You've got to believe me that He prayed.
You've got to hear what I say; He prayed.
For I and you, you,
For I and you,
For I and you, you,
For I and you.
For I and you.
Yes, He prayed, He prayed,
Yes, He prayed, He prayed,
You've got to believe me that he prayed.
