lyrics

provided for research and private study only (see above for copyright details):

Do you want to know a secret

you’ll never know how much I really love you
you’ll never know how much I really care

listen, do you want to know a secret?
do you promise not to tell? whoa-oh-oh
closer, let me whisper in your ear
say the words you long to hear
“I’m in love with you” whoa-oh-oh

listen, do you want to know a secret?
do you promise not to tell? whoa-oh-oh
closer, let me whisper in your ear
say the words you long to hear
“I’m in love with you” whoa-oh-oh

I’ve known the secret for a week or two
nobody knows just we two

listen, do you want to know a secret?
do you promise not to tell? whoa-oh-oh
closer, let me whisper in your ear
say the words you long to hear
“I’m in love with you” whoa-oh-oh

“I’m in love with you”
oh, “I’m in love with you”
listen, I’m in love with you
listen, I’m in love with you
