Well, ordinarily, I'd send you to the Levy Sheet Music Collection (click). Unfortunately, their copy of this song is not available online because it's still under copyright. You can get sheet music at http://www.halleonard.com. Apparently it's not in any of their fake books, or else I'm using their search engine wrong. Seems like it should be in lots of fake books. The do have it in a book called The Lyrics Library: Love Songs.
Here's the entry from Levy:
