"Do You Want to Know a Secret" as written by John Lennon and Paul Mccartney....
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 woh woh woh closer
Let me whisper in your ear
Say the words you long to hear
I'm in love with you oo
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 woh woh woh closer
Let me whisper in your ear
Say the words you long to hear
I'm in love with you oo

    General CommentIt's about John telling his wife Cynthia that he has a secret: that he loves her.

    General CommentThis song started out, according to John, as a song that his mother used to sing to him, based on the Disney film, Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs. In one of the opening scenes of the film, Snow White is wokring as a kitchen maid, and, as she stands by the castle well, she begins to sing to the doves "Wanna know a secret? Promise not to tell? We are standing by a wishing well." (I'm Wishing, by Money/Churchill.)

    A demo of this track was made by John in the bathroom with an acoustic guitar (it's obvious that it's a bathroom - a few hundred bucks says nobody knows why).

    Although the song was written by John with his own voice in mind, the song was offered to George. According to John, "I thought this was the perfect vehicle for George's voice, as it only had three notes in it, and George wasn't the world's greatest singer."

    PS. Don't flame me, I'm only the messenger.

    General CommentI love this song. I like the Beatles. This song makes me happy as soon as I hear it. I can't help but smile. Sometimes at school, I'll start singing this song, then my friends will join in. (Not something you see a lot among a bunch of 15 year old girls, but whatever.) This song kicks butt!

    General Commentstrwberryf1ds, that's gross...but I won't hold it against you. ;)

    When I hear this song, I think of two schoolkids, a boy and a girl. They could be in kindergarten or in high school, but the boy is shy and doesn't want to tell the girl he loves her out loud, so he whispers in her ear. He cups his hands around her ear and then just says it very quietly. =^_^= George is so cute!
