A paixão nua e cega dos estios, Atravessou a minha vida como rios

Someone to Watch over Me (#77) - Música de George Gershwin e Letra de Ira Gershwin 
No dia 8 de Novembro de 1926, o musical “Oh Kay!” estreou-se no Teatro “Imperial”, e durante a memorável exibição Gertrude Lawrence apresentou à audiência uma canção intitulada “Someone to Watch over Me”. O musical “Oh Kay!” obteve grande sucesso na Broadway, com 256 exibições, antes de atravessar o Atlântico para uma versão em Londres, em 1927. Este musical obteve ainda êxito em 1960 fora da Broadway e em 1990, novamente na Broadway.

Letra (versão de Renee Olstead)           
                  
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
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

Letra (versão de Linda Ronstadt)           
              
There's a saying 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 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
Someone to watch over me

Letra (versão de Chet Baker)                 
              
There's a someone I'm longin' 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 that I could be good
To one who'll watch over me
I may not be the guy some
Girls think of as handsome
To her heart I’ll 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
Won't you tell her please to put on some speed
Follow my lead, oh, how I need
Someone to watch over me
Someone to watch over me
