You promised me, green grass, not to tell what you heard
Whispering grass, say, you can't keep your word
Keep your word

Why do you whisper, green grass?
Why tell the trees what ain't so?
Whispering grass, the trees don't have to know
No, no, why tell them all your secrets?

Who kissed there long ago?
Whispering grass, the trees don't need to know
Don't you tell it to the breeze
'Cause she will tell the birds and bees

And everyone will know
Because you told the blabberin' trees
Yes, you told them once before
It's no secret any more

Why tell them all the old things?
They're buried under the snow
Whispering Grass, don't tell the trees
'Cause the trees don't need to know

Why do you whisper, green grass?
Why tell the trees what ain't so?
Whispering grass, the trees don't have to know
No, no, why tell them all your secrets?

Who kissed there long ago?
Whispering grass, the trees don't need to know
Don't you tell it to the breeze
'Cause she will tell the birds and bees

And everyone will know
Because you told the blabberin' trees
Yes, you told them once before
It's no secret any more

Why tell them all the old things?
They're buried under the snow
Whispering grass, don't tell the trees
