Written by c. wilmore & c. jackson

Hoo, hoo, mm

Don't mention my heartache

I just hide it away

Don't want to remember what brings me pain

Who does it hurt if I'm masquerading

When anybody asks me you know I'll say, yeah

That I love him, he loves me

We're so good together

I'll pretend he's home again

Though he's gone forever

Don't mention my heartache

'cause I don't want nobody to know, no, no, no

Just keep it a secret that he let me go

'cause I don't want nobody to know

That I go through the motions (motions)

Put a smile on my face, yes, I do

I heard that the weather is changing today, yeah, yeah

And I don't talk about my business to noone

If anybody asks me you know what I'll say, yeah

That I love him; he loves me, we're so good together

I'll pretend he's home again, though he's gone forever

Don't mention my heartache

'cause I don't want nobody to know, oh, no

Just keep it a secret that he let me go

'cause I don't want nobody to know--

Oh, oh, oh, oh, hoo--

That the heartache that I'm feeling makes me lonely, oh---

Don't mention my heartache

'cause I don't want nobody to know, no, no

Just keep it a secret that he let me go

And I don't want nobody to know, nobody

(can't talk about it)

Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah

(don't want to think about it)

And I don't want nobody, I got a heartache

I don't want nobody, I don't want nobody, I got a heartache

(don't mention my heartache)

I got a heartache, he let me go

It's a sweet face, yes, it is

Don't want nobody, can't stand nobody

(don't mention my heartache)

And I got to keep it a secret

(I'm minding my business)

'cause my man, 'cause my man

Ain't my man no more

Keeping it a secret (don't mention my heartache)

Keeping it a secret, oh, all to myself, he let me go...
