Written by george and ira gershwinAvailable on the tribute album the glory of gershwinThere’s a saying old says that love is blindStill we’re often told seek and ye shall findSo I’m going to seek a certain girl I’ve had in mindLooking everywhere, haven’t found her yetShe’s the big affair I cannot forgetOnly girl I ever think of will regretI’d like to add her initial to my monogramTell me where’s the shepherd for this lost lambThere’s a somebody I’m longing to seeI hope that she turns out to beSomeone who’ll watch over meI’m a little lamb who’s lost in a woodI know I could always be goodTo one who’ll watch over meAlthough she may not the girl some men think ofAs handsome to my heartShe carries the keyWon’t you tell her please to put on some speedFollow my lead, oh how I needSomeone to watch over meSomeone to watch over me
