Someone To Watch Over Me

By G. Gershwin & I. Gershwin

There’s a saying old says that love is blind
Still we’re 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
He’s the big affair I cannot forget
Only man I ever think of with regret

I’d like to add his initials to my monogram
Tell me where is the shepherd for this lost lamb?

There’s a somebody I’m longin’ to see
I hope that he turns out to be
Someone to watch over me

I’m a little lamb who’s lost in the wood
I know I could always be good
To one 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

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
Someone to watch over me
