Someone To Watch Over Me

  • There's a saying old says that love is blind
    Still were often told, seek and ye shall find
    So I'm going to seek a certain lad I've had in mind
    Looking everywhere, haven't found him yet

    Hes the big affair I cannot forget
    Only man I ever think of with regret
    I'd like to add his initial to my monogram
    Tell me, where is the shepherd for this lost lamb?

    There's a somebody I'm longing to see
    I hope that he turns out to be
    Someone who'll watch over me
    I'm a little lamb who's lost in the wood
    I know I could always be good
    Someone who'll watch over me

    Although he may not be the man some
    Girls think of as handsome
    To my heart he carries the key
    Won't you tell him please to put on some speed
    Follow my lead, oh, how I need
    Someone to watch over me Writer/s: George Gershwin, Ira Gershwin
