– Stranger in Paradise –
from Kismet, 1953
Robert Wright and George Forrest, music partly adapted from Alexander Borodin

Take my hand
I'm a stranger in paradise
All lost in a wonderland
A stranger in paradise

If I stand starry-eyed
That's a danger in paradise
For mortals who stand beside
An angel like you

I saw your face
And I ascended
Out of the commonplace
Into the rare
Somewhere in space
I hang suspended
Until I know
There's a chance that you care

Won't you answer the fervent prayer
Of a stranger in paradise
Don't send me in dark despair
From all that I hunger for

But open your angel's arms
To this stranger in paradise
And tell him
That he need be
A stranger no more
– Someone to Watch Over Me –
by Ira & George Gershwin, 1926
from the musical Oh, Kay!

{Intro:}
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 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.

{Bridge:}
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,

{break then repeat then . . . }
Someone to watch over me.
– Dream a Little Dream of Me –
by Wilbur Schwandt, Fabian Andre & Gus Kahn, 1931

Stars shining bright above you
Night breezes seem to whisper "I love you"
Birds singing in a sycamore tree
Dream a little dream of me.

Say "Nightie-night" and kiss me
Just hold me tight and tell me you'll miss me
While I'm alone and blue as can be
Dream a little dream of me.

{Bridge:}
Stars fading but I linger on, dear, still craving your kiss
I'm longing to linger till dawn, dear, just saying this:

Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you
Sweet dreams that leave your worries behind you
But in your dreams whatever they be
Dream a little dream of me.

{Repeat bridge and last verse, changed thusly:}
Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you
Sweet dreams that leave your worries behind you
But in your dreams whatever they be
You gotta make me a promise,
Promise to me, you'll dream
Dream a little dream of me.
