I wonder who (unless it's Harold!)



It seems there's none for me although
My aching heart discovers
In a story play or picture show
A host of perfect lovers

The first of all was Romeo
That passion isn't cool yet
This world would have a rosy glow
If I had been his Juliet





For Antony, I'd learn to care
Ah, he was strong and graceful
If other lovers held two pair
That fellow held an aceful 

Somebody loves me, I wonder who
I wonder who he can be
Somebody loves me, I wish I knew
Who can he be worries me

For every boy who passes me
I shout, "Hey, maybe
You were meant to be my loving baby"
Somebody loves me, I wonder who maybe it's you




At one time, Harold Lloyd, I thought
Was grand in every flashback
To see him, oh, the seats I bought
I wish I had the cash back 

'Twas Big Bill Hart who took his place
He's western and he's classy
He had an open spaces face
And oh, girls, what a chassis 

Then, Jackie Coogan came along
He had the other shown-up
And to him, I will sing my song
As soon as he is grown up




Somebody loves me, I wonder who
I wonder who he can be
Somebody loves me, I wish I knew
Who can he be worries me 

For every boy who passes me
I shout, "Hey, maybe
You were meant to be my loving baby"
Somebody loves me, 
I wonder who 
maybe it's you

(George and Ira Gershwin)
