 From my mind


Now this is a secret I don't want anyone else to hear
Shhhhh whisper, whisper, whisper while you bend my ear
Keep what I tell you to yourself
For your ears only and nobody else.

If this secret is such a big secret
Then I don't want to know if it's all the same
It will be the one with the flapping lips and loose tongue
And not me who will take the blame.

You say you don't want these words
To go around from person to person and be spread
Causing you trouble and that's your biggest dread  
My advice to you is zip up your mouth and keep them in your head.
