Why we chose this song

Donna chose this song because her vision of her parents is a love story set in the era of the old standards. This song has a rich melody. It has a gentle rhythm as well. Donna’s parents had the kind of love where they continued to be there for each other no matter what. The song is a representation of someone who dreams about that kind of love. Romantic and rich. 

Song Lyrics

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
