The Brothers Gershwin: “Someone to Watch over Me”: Ella Fitzgerald Video

Re-posted by Nicholas Stix
 


 

Music by George Gershwin
Lyrics by 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

There's a somebody I'm longin' 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, 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

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
