Paint a rumour (What's it gonna spread?)
Paint a rumour (See the place go red)
I could tell you something (Promise not to tell)
I could tell you something (Promise not to sell)
It's a secret (Secret, it's a secret, secret)
It's a secret (Secret, it's a secret, secret)
It's a secret (Secret, it's a secret, secret)
It's a secret (Secret, it's a secret, secret)

(I have heard a whisper) I have heard a whisper (What did it say?)
I heard a whisper (Make it go away)
Don't believe a word of it (Promise not to tell)
Don't repeat a word of it (Promise not to sell)
It's a secret (Secret, it's a secret, secret)
It's a secret (Secret, it's a secret, secret)
It's a secret (Secret, it's a secret)
It's a secret (Secret, it's a secret)
It's a secret (Secret)

It's a secret (Secret)
It's a secret (Secret, it's a secret, secret)
It's a secret (Secret, it's a secret)
It's a secret (Secret, secret), secret
Paint a rumour, paint a rumour (See the place go red)
I could tell you something, I could tell you something (Promise not to sell)
Paint a rumour, paint a rumour (Make it go away)
I could tell you something, I could tell you something (Promise not to sell)
Paint a rumour (What's it gonna spread?)
Paint a rumour, I could tell you something (Promise not to sell), I could tell you something
Paint a rumour (What did it say?)
Paint a rumour, I could tell you something (Promise not to tell), I could tell you something

It's a secret (Secret)
It's a secret (Secret, it's a secret, secret)
It's a secret (Secret, it's a secret, secret)
It's a secret (Secret, it's a secret, secret)
It's a secret (Secret)
Paint a rumour, I could tell you something, I could tell you something, I could tell you something (Promise not to sell)
I could tell you something, I could tell you something, I could tell you something (Promise not to tell)
I could tell you something
