1 Just Between Me And You. (A Childrens Poem)



The rabbits wouldn't thank me if I told you all their secrets
So if I tell you and they find out just say the swallows leaked it
They'll believe you for you see them always rushing here and there
Tittle tattling, calling someone, speaking rumours on the air
Nor do they care who hears it or who they tell it to
They've such loose tongues, not like me, that's why I'm only telling you.

The pheasants wouldn't thank me if I told you where they're nested
So if I tell you and they find out just tell them that you guessed it
They'll believe you. They're so stupid. They're the silliest of birds
All that gaudy plumage really makes them look absurd
Hear the grouse among the heather, they will gossip till they're blue
They've such loose tongues, not like me that's why I'm only telling you

There's a field mouse in the thick tall grass, a hedgehog in the bushes
And at the base of yonder hill you'll find a nest of thrushes
A badgers setts beneath that tree. An otters by the stream
I told him only yesterday where he could find a bream
But learn to keep your secrets, don't let your mouth run free
If you must tell someone then I hope you'll be only telling me
