Silent lover, secret lover, run for cover
When my man's in town

You never been a shy one
You really are a sly one yes sire, yes sire, oh
Coming right out of hiding
Slipping right in and sliding, down to me, oh baby oh
And when it's time for worryin'
You're doing what you're doing, gracefully, oh baby
When you took me into your arms and shook me
To the core, oh yeah...

Silent lover, secret lover, run for cover
When my man's in town
Silent lover, secret lover, run for cover
When my man's in town

Oh I guess you really change me
You sort of rearrange me more and more, oh baby yeah...
Each day you come on stronger
I know you really longer
What's the score, what's the score, alright
And I know you're much too clever,
Just to go run forever
No, not you, oh baby
You're like a wind wing rover
Just like a wind wing rover, passing through, oh yeah...
And one day you'll say
No use to keep on saying, name the truth, oh baby

Silent lover, secret lover, run for cover
When my man's in town
Silent lover, secret lover, run for cover
When my man's in town

You never been a shy one
You really are a sly one yes sire, oh baby
Coming right out of hiding
Slipping right in and sliding, down to me, oh yeah...
Oh...and when it's time for worryin'
You're doing what you're doing, gracefully, gracefully
Oh you took me into your arms and shook me
To the score, to a score
Oh I guess you really change me
You sort of rearrange me more and more, oh...yeah...

Silent lover, secret lover, run for cover
When my man's in town
