Can You, Sweetheart, Keep a Secret?
Copyright, 1876. by Geo. W. Richardson & Co.
Words and Music by H. M. Eastbrooke.

Can you, sweetheart, keep a secret,
If I whisper one to you?
I will say it very softly,
Can you. sweetheart, keep it true?
Bend your head a little lower,
Put aside each curling tress;
For the words I'll gently whisper,
And their meaning, can you guess?

Can you, sweetheart, keep a secret.
If I whisper one to you?
I will say it very softly,
Can you, sweetheart, keep it true?

Do not turn away so shyly,
For my passion you must know;
Let me look into your face, love,
Where the roses come and go.
Let me look but once, my darling,
In your eyes of deepest blue;
Filled with love-light, warm and tender
And I'll guess your secret, too.-Chorus

Ah! no longer 'tis a secret,
For within those dewy eyes;
Veiled by lashes long and silken,
Only pure affection lies;'
Brighter than the stars of evening,
On my brow they seem to shine,
And I fold my arms about you,
Knowing you are wholly mine.-Chorus
