"Someone To Watch Over Me" lyrics - KRISTIN CHENOWETH

"Someone To Watch Over Me"
(George Gershwin / Ira 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 initial to my monogram
Tell me where is the shepherd for this lost lamb?

[Chorus 1:]
There's a somebody I'm longing to see
I hope that he turns out to be
Someone who watch over me

[Chorus 2:]
Like a little lamb who's lost in the wood
I know I could always be good
To the 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

[Chorus 3:]
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
