Can you keep a secret?
Between us
I know I can always trust you
Can’t be stuck in a rut
What’s the fuss?
Got to share this or else I’m blue

Hide under a blanket
Cat is plus
Here are some sweets for us to chew
We go to the market
On a bus
Then we go and see my Andrew

He gave me a bracelet
Like Christmas
I’m so happy I think I flew
Then we went for doughnut
That’s bonus
He’s my boyfriend, all toys adieu
