Song Lyric Sunday – Listen

This week’s prompt is “Listen” for Song Lyric Sunday from Helen Vahdati

The song I chose jumped into my head immediately because the word ‘Listen’ runs all the way through it.  It is a Beatles song, by Lennon & McCartney, from the Please, Please Me album in 1963 but it was best known in England as performed by Billy J. Kramer and the Dakotas.  I’m not sure he came to the USA with the British Invasion but he was a very handsome guy with a sweet style and had all the girls screaming hysterically.

I hope you enjoy it.

 

“Do You Want To Know A Secret”

You’ll never know how much I really love you
You’ll never know how much I really careListen
Do you want to know a secret
Do you promise not to tell, whoa oh, ohCloser
Let me whisper in your ear
Say the words you long to hear
I’m in love with youListen
Do you want to know a secret
Do you promise not to tell, whoa oh, ohCloser
Let me whisper in your ear
Say the words you long to hear
I’m in love with youI’ve known the secret for a week or two
Nobody knows, just we two

Listen
Do you want to know a secret
Do you promise not to tell, whoa oh, oh

Closer
Let me whisper in your ear
Say the words you long to h
I’m in love with you

Written by Lennon-McCartney

    I love that song, it has a sweet melody and the words are so romantic. Never knew a group in UK besides The Beatles had a hit with it. Perfect choice for Listen
