Words by Philip Wingate. Music by H. W. Petrie.

Lone departed are those golden years,
Happy childhood, filled with hopes and fears,
School-days, school-days, gone with the rest,
When I loved Nellie, clearest and best.
Castles we built then, brightest e'er seen;
In every palace she was the queen.
Me she promised, I promised Nell,
Always our secrets truly to tell.

Whisper your secret to me-Can I guess what it will be.
Just as of old I used to do, when we were both at school?
Whisper your secret to me, none can so sweet ever be:
Secrets at school when we were true, secrets with you at school.

Long years after, far away I roam,
Thinking ever of my childhood home;
Waking, dreaming, one face I see,
Sweetheart of childhood, dearest to me.
Then home returning, dear faithful Nell
Begs for my secrets, says I must tell.
Here's my secret: I love but you.
Smiling, she answered, "That's my secret, too." -Refrain.
