About Someone to Watch over Me

"Someone to Watch Over Me" is a 1926 song composed by George Gershwin with lyrics by Ira Gershwin. It was written for singer Gertrude Lawrence in the musical Oh, Kay! (1926). Originally, "Someone to Watch Over Me" was an up-tempo swing, but upon experimenting one day George Gershwin played the song as a ballad, and it stuck ever since. The song was recorded by Frank Sinatra in 1946, for his first album The Voice Of Frank Sinatra, and again by him in 1954 for the film Young At Heart. It was later covered by several hundred artists, among others: Ella Fitzgerald (1951); Chet Baker (1955); Dakota Staton (1960); Barbra Streisand (1965); Ray Charles (1969); Willie Nelson (1978); Linda Rondstadt (1983); and Rickie Lee Jones (2000). The 1987 romantic crime thriller film Someone to Watch Over Me takes its name from the song, which is featured throughout the film in a version sung by Sting. An episode of Star Trek: Voyager, Someone to Watch Over Me (Star Trek: Voyager), aired on April 28, 1999, and featured the song throughout the episode.

There's a saying old says that love is blind 
Still were often told "seek and you shall find" 
So I'm going to seek a certain girl I've had in mind 
Looking everywhere haven't found her yet 

She's the big affair I cannot forget 
Only girl I ever think of with regret 
I'd like to add her initial to my monogram 
Tell me where is the shepherdess for this lost lamb? 

There's a somebody I'm longing to see 
I hope that she 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 I may not be the man some girls think of as handsome 

To her heart I carry the key 
Won't you tell her please to put on some speed, follow my lead 
Oh, how I need someone who'll watch over me 

There's a somebody I'm longing to see 
I hope that she 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 I may not be the man some girls think of as handsome 
To her heart I carry the key 
Won't you tell her please to put on some speed, follow my lead 
Oh, how I need someone to watch over me
