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
