   Do You Want To Know A Secret?
by John T. Marck




Do You Want To Know A Secret?

Upon The Beatles return from their thirteen-week engagement in Hamburg, and about the same time that Paul broke up with Dot, Cynthia discovered that she was pregnant. To do the traditional thing, she and John Lennon were married on August 23, 1962. Written by Lennon, the theme of this song is to Cynthia, whereby John realized that he did truly love Cynthia - this being the secret. But, the musical inspiration for the song came from the Walt Disney 1937 film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. In one of the scenes, Snow White is singing to the doves, saying, "Wanna know a secret? Promise not to tell? We are standing by a wishing well." Although written from John to Cynthia, Lennon decided to give it to George to sing because as Lennon said, "it only had three notes and he wasn't the best singer in the world." This song was also offered to and recorded by Billy J. Kramer and his group "the Dakotas." His version went on to become a Number 2 hit in England, and was the first time a Beatles' song by another artist had made the Hit Parade.

You 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, oh, oh closer,

let me whisper in your ear,

say the words you long to hear

I'm in love with you, oo

Listen, (do da do)

do you want to know a secret, (do da do)

Do you promise not to tell, (do da do)

woh, oh, oh closer,

(do da do), let me whisper in your ear,

(do da do) say the words you long to hear

I'm in love with you, oo

I've known a secret for a week or two,

nobody knows, just we two

Listen, (do da do),

do you want to know a secret, (do dad do)

Do you promise not to tell, (do da do) woh,

oh, oh closer,

(do da do), let me whisper in your ear,

(do da do) say the words you long to hear

I'm in love with you,

oo, oo
