Streisand, Barbra - Someone To Watch Over Me Lyrics

Looking everywhere haven't found him yet
He's the big affair, I cannot forget
Only man I ever think of with regret...
There's a somebody I'm longing 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,
Please, put on some speed
Follow my lead, oh, how I need
Someone to watch over me...

Streisand, Barbra Someone To Watch Over Me Comments
  1. Willec

    We can't ever hope to fully understand truly unique and gifted people. They channel their talent given to them by God. They will tell you they don't fully understand it themselves. They just allow it to come through. Barbra is such a person and artist. Despite the emotional deprivation of her childhood, she has somehow managed to avoid many of the pitfalls of fame and success such as multiple marriages, bankruptcies, addiction, and even death. I think she has the finest singing voice at least in the second half of the 20th Century and beyond.

  11. zarhet ibarra-martinez

    Looking everywhere haven't found him yet
    He's the big affair, I cannot forget
    Only man I ever think of with regret
    There's a somebody I'm longing to see,
    I hope that he turns out to be
    Someone to watch over me
    I'm a little lamb who's lost in the world
    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, humm
    Won't you tell him, please, to put on some speed
    Follow my lead, oh, how I need
    Someone to watch over me

  12. Stefania Liotti

    BIG Gershwin into Barbra very beautiful

  13. Peter Shaw

    What a voice. And what a song. One for the archives.

  14. Peter Shaw

    What a voice. Prime.

  15. cecelia mathews

    Babs!!! Still, got it.

  16. Sheila Burns

    I love Barbra … silky, lovely voice.

  17. Peter Shaw

    What a voice. That's all.

  18. Madaghdjian Sophie

    C est celle qui le chante le mieux l emotion la technique sans trop en faire je la preferen un miliard de fois à Céline Dion qui est trop technique et sans une âme comme celle de Barbara.sophie pianiste de jazz et chanteuse

  19. Samm Hill

    This beautiful song and the accompanying video pictures are somewhat out of sync with each other. The song is soft and flowing, the pictures change in an abrupt and 'harsh' way, instead of softly blurring from one picture into the next.
    Beautiful song, thank you.

  20. Shams

    No Julie Andrews' world class diction.

  21. Hollywood

    Barbra is an unconventional beauty.

  22. Mary Freerav

    Suffering. Trapped. The prisoner as titles,IMF

  23. empress quamina

    Ella 's version is the best and most effortless interpretation of this song.

    monica bella

    Sarah Vaughn! Forget Ella!

  24. robertryanforever

    Un deleite para los oídos !!! Barbra, mi respeto por siempre !!!

  25. Harbor Heart

    Ouch. Give me Ronstadt's on this tune much more important. Warmth and ...

  26. dani42ish

    Her voice is truly a gift from God!

  27. barbarellagb

    i love her choices. she's perfection.

  28. michrigan

    Compared to Amy Winehouse this is whitebread.

  29. Alex stevensen

    somehow I don't dig that new-york ish sinatra style of 'weird timing'

  30. Beverly Derry


  31. Allbbrz

    I like Barbra, but not this version she did... sorry for the die hard fans out there...

  32. master yap

    Her singing soars and so effortlessly.

    Guy North

    A true mark of a talented singer, there are few.

  33. Justas Well

    Ouch. Give me Ronstadt. Barbra was a great singer but no warmth on this one.

  34. Diane Davison

    A voice for the Ages! She could sing a grocery list, and it would be poetry for the ears!

  35. CutZy McCall

    In looks, Amy Winehouse resembles her. But Barbra is one and only, one of a kind, one of the greats, if not the greatest.

  36. Michael K

    That is not a voice, it's a musical instrument.

  37. newt0830

    i thought she left the country.


    No such luck............

  38. Norman Shechner

    I love this song and this version is just wonderful

  39. Roger Roger

    Love the modulation that provides a sudden secondary harmonic turn (2:17) with a quick melodic resolve thereafter. Barbra has always been the consummate genuine article. It is nice to hear her on this one while she is still "prime". She has aged like a fine wine enjoyable even until this day.. I love her voice no matter the date of the recording. I hope she is full of the appreciation of life in general and her gift in particular this very day. Thank you for your work, Barbara.

  40. keith oudal

    pure magic

  41. f jewel


    keith oudal

    The real deal.

  42. Flying Mondongo

    She did it ¡again! Another song ruined by Babs. Better is Ella and Amy and so on... And Lady Gaga as well.

    Charlie Charlie

    i kinda agree with you but she did have a beautiful voice everything really affected tho.

    Miss Dee

    Her voice is so beautiful though! I like Ella's phrasing best though.

    Al Menotti

    Go get your ears checked....

    Noena Burnell

    Flying Mondongo if I was as musically ignorant as you are...I would stay quiet!

    Noena Burnell

    You don't half spout some shite!

  43. Alexander Tippett

    Beautiful Barbara :-)

  44. Abbie Baker

    Our father says that Hebrew people have the same heart.  I don't know if I understand what all he means by that but I'll take his word for it.  He wants the best for us.

  45. Abbie Baker

    once again let me have that feeling inside that best friends have, when they know they have each other's backs no matter what that absolute trust that we don't have to second guess.  I am sorry for my part in our disagreements.  I feel overwhelmed most of the time and I need your friendship.  Maybe I need your Hebrew friendship.

  46. Abbie Baker

    Barbra  keep me in your prayers and hope there is a right way out of Rod and me.  You know that I love him.  I've really missed you.  Your music meant so much to me for most of my life you were my favorite.  Let our friendship be healed and

  47. ericscam2

    There are good singers and there are the greats. Streisand is one of the greats.

  48. Maxharddrive64

    There is absolutely NO ONE alive with a better singing voice


    +Maxharddrive64   AMEN!

    Western Shipway

    Bull Shit.

    Miss Dee

    KD Lang is amazing too, but yeah, you can't beat Barbra. In fact, I don't know who is better of all time out of Ella Fitzgerald or Barbra. I love those pure voices.

  49. kathyweedon

    This is my mother's favorite song- -Barbra Streisand sings it so beautifully!

  50. Elaine Lotcpeich

    Absolutely beautiful!

  51. bostondad406

      --  the more i listen to her, the more i appreciate how supremely talented she really is -- watch and listen to her duet with judy garland, back when she was just starting out -- she was wonderful from the very beginning -- 

    Ken Hilderbrand

    @bostondad406 Yes, certainly one of the best. I used to listen to her a lot. To bad her dementia spilled over into politics.


    @Ken Hilderbrand the worst kind of citizen is politically apathetic -- we should all be informed, caring citizens, doing what we think is best to make the country better -- kudos to her for doing that -- work for what you believe in -

  52. Guillermo Cardona

    Simply tehe best!

  53. SuperCarver2011

    Great song and the best female singer to perform it with her special interpretations. 


    Barbra is an excellent singer, one of the best of all time, but I would argue that the versions by Ella Fitzgerald, Keely Smith, Joni James, and Linda Ronstadt are equally excellent.


    I concur. However, Barbara' s voice which
    has that unique nasal quality and vocal
    range,  just makes her style and interpretative
    qualities very special,  if you are a Streisand


    I am a Streisand fan and have loved her version ever since I first heard it. The My Name is Barbra albums are classics.

    Cintia Luz

    +catman916 and Sarah Vaughan, the best in my opinion.

    Sebastian Johnson

    Amy Winehouses version beats this by far and even though I love frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Babara, Amy's version is a lot better and jazzier.

  54. Tom Tee

    Barbara, simply the very best for so many years. Sophistication that enters every cell of your body.

  55. Jeffrey C. McAndrew

    What a golden voice. 

  56. Jeffrey C. McAndrew

    Love you Barbara.

  57. fu man chu

    WOW, amazing intro  

    technically stunning, gorgeous interpretation.  think it lacks a little soul though (eg too technical)

  58. Jose Sepulveda

    from Jose' Sepulveda....The Kid From L. A.............My word, she is beautiful......a unique, marvellous, special kind of beauty.......and, of course, THAT VOICE.........

  59. Jose Sepulveda

    from Jose' Sepulveda......positively orgasmic......

  60. Jose Sepulveda

    from Jose' other favorite lady singer, Ella Fitzgerald, said Barbra is one of a tiny handful of singers she would pay to go see...


    Both are among the great female singers.

  61. Jose Sepulveda

    from Jose' "Timo" Sepulveda........Barbra is other-worldly......she OWNS every song she sings........SPECTACULAR,,,

  62. Eduardo Lee

    Well, my mother also sings it beautiful but Barbra's version is out of this world, meaning TERRIFIC.

  63. Katy

    Look up the version by "Jenna Anne" IT IS ASTOUNDING!

  64. mixispikalet

    rondstats best

  65. Edward Carron

    Its not just her voice - somehow she manages to squeeze her entire personality into everything she does. Totally brilliant. There is only one Barbara!

  66. george mackenzie

    When you walked down the stares at the opening of the arts sentor in Otowa in1967 you looked like a goddes and it scared me that you may trip over my lighting cables but like a true LADY you handle it well xx

  67. Maxine Rai

    I wish I could of lived in that time when music was simply beautiful!!

  68. Maxine Rai

    This Song This Woman= Brilliant

  69. mrbillhicks

    0:05 oh dear !!

  70. Edmond Dantez

    As long as she's singing or acting she makes me happy.

  71. catman916

    There have been some other terrific recordings of this marvelous song, including those of Frank Sinatra, Keely Smith, Ella Fitzgerald, Joni James, and Linda Ronstadt. Jean Louisa Kelly's version is among them.

  72. CMmuskie

    I like Jean Louisa Kelly's version better.

  73. siriuzzaz


  74. mira golberg

    Uma maravilhosa melodia inesquecivel, na voz da melhor cantora americana.É um delirio.
    adorei. Mira

  75. Jhoanna Maurice

    If only my voice was like hers [or comes even close to hers], then I'd be on Broadway by now!:P

    A lot of the artists today, thought they do sound rather good, close your eyes & you won't be able to tell them from the next one. But Ms. Barbra Streisand's vocal styling's only one & the same... Simply AMAZING<3^_^!!!

  76. Jhoanna Maurice

    Very well said^_^!

  77. Skipper DAmico

    I am so happy to have lived through the greatest decades of the greatest music and singers ever. The 40's , 50' and 60's.

  78. leslie lardizabal

    Clasica - bellisima!

  79. Joe Nardone

    Elvis was a pedophile ... what did she say about him?

  80. Joe Nardone

    Who cares? This is about the singing here. Keep your or her politics out of it!

  81. Richard Wallace

    Yes, entertainers' political opinions and observations are usually liberally wacko because they're aren't grounded in reality like ordinary people. They usually are poseurs for the poor and downtrodden, but they wouldn't give them a dime unless a tax credit were involved.

  82. rwhdragonmaster


  83. boheme19

    I have just always thought she is such and incredibly beautiful woman!

  84. desert3347

    The only Singer that can sing "Silent Night" with feeling. Interesting
    because she's Jewish. LV the Barbara

  85. net60man

    Mitt i allt så är världen vackrare med dej

  87. catman916

  88. Clare Carl

  89. Rick Park
