Someone to Watch Over Me

Someone to Watch Over Me

Robert Brereton
George Gershwin (1898-1937), Lyrics - Ira Gershwin (1896-1983)


This song sill gets me choked up every time I play it.


Although this is instrumental on the recording, I thought I'd include the lyrics here on the website. 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 girl I've had in mind Looking everywhere, haven't found her yet She's the big affair I cannot forget Only girl I ever think of will regret I'd like to add her initial to my monogram Tell me where's the shepherd for this lost lamb There's a somebody I'm longing to see I hope that she turns out to be Someone who'll watch over me I'm a little lamb who's lost in a wood I know I could always be good To one who'll watch over me Although she may not the girl some men think of As handsome to my heart She carries the key Won't you tell her please to put on some speed Follow my lead, oh how I need Someone to watch over me Someone to watch over me
