Sharing the Secret
Psst. Listen to this, Sis!
I’m going to whisper in your ear,
Because I don’t want Dad to hear.
This secret’s just come straight from Mum:
She’s got a baby in her tum!
No one must know, but you and me
And Mum, of course, but just we three.
I said to Mum I wouldn’t tell,
So you must promise me as well,
Then when Dad hears the baby’s cries,
He’s going to get a huge surprise!
