1st verse:
Honey I have something to tell you
And it's worth while listening to
Put your little head on my shoulder
So that I can whisper to you

Whispering while you cuddle near me,
Whispering so no one can hear me
Each little whisper seems to cheer me
I know it;s true
There's no one, dear, but you,
You're whispering why you'll never leave me
Whispering why you'll never grieve me
Whisper and say that you believe me
Whispering that I love you.

2nd verse:
When the twilight shadows are falling
And the weary world is at rest
Then I'll whisper just why I know dear
Loving time is always the best
