SECRET LOVE
Recorded by Slim Whitman
Written by P. F. Webster and S. Fain

Once I had a Secret Love
That lived within the heart of me
All too soon my Secret Love
Became impatient to be free;

So I told a friendly star
The way that dreamer's often do
Just how wonderful your are
And why I'm so in love with you;

Now I shout it from the highest hills
Even told the golden daffodils
Now my heart's an open door
And my Secret Love's no secret any more.

The original was first sung by Doris Day in the film "Calamity Jane," 1953.

Lyrics to the following parody transcribed from the sound file at http://www.geocities.com/u2page6/

SECRET LOVE
(As sung by Homer & Jethro)

Once I had a secret love
That lived way down in Tennessee.
I loved the ground that she walked on.
I thought she owned that property.

Yes, she was my secret love.
Of that there cannot be a doubt.
I've been in love with her for years.
I hope my wife don't find it out.

Once I took her took a picture show.
Tried to kiss her while the lights were low.
She hit me in the mezzanine
Between the popcorn and the Coke machine.

Now she's really got me up a tree
'Cause some dirty pigeon told on me,
An' now my head is awful sore
'Cause my secret love's no secret anymore.

Once I had a secret love
She wore a nylon negligee
When our night of love was done
She said I did not have to pay
When I asked her why her love was free
She said, "Sealy Mattress sponsored me
Last night we were on channel four"
Now my secret love's no secret any more

Remembered from early teen years, circa 1960. I think it was on an LP by an Ivy League glee club.

I started writing down the sheet music for this. In the key of F, it goes from middle C to the F at the top of the staff. That's pretty challenging.

I saw "Calamity Jane" as a little kid. It was a welcome relief from "War of the Worlds," which was the other movie on the double feature. I spent most of that one in the lobby because I was so frightened. I remember the man who sold candy saying to me, "The other one is Calamity Jane. You'll like Calamity Jane."

"Secret Love" became a song we liked to sing around the house in the 1950's.
