Can two friends share a secret thought
 And keep its truth unsaid?
Only if their tongues fall out
 Or one of them is dead.

A secret is a fleeting thing
 And difficult to hold;
While new ones flourish every day
 They're rarely kept 'til old.

So can you do this thing for me
 And keep this secret well?
If not, please ask all those you meet
 To promise not to tell.
