my lyricsbox
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 go 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?

There's a somebody I'm longing to see.
I hope that he turns out to be
Someone Who'll Watch Over Me.

I'm a little lamb who's lost in the wood
I know I could be 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

{Instrumental}

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 . . .
