Someone To Watch Over Me

There’s a story old

Says that love is blind

Still we’re often told

Seek and you 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 me 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
