Secretly
Jimmie Rodgers Lyrics


Do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do

Why must I meet you in a secret rendezvous?
Why must we steal away to steal a kiss or two?
Why must we wait to do the things we want to do?

Why, oh, why, oh, why, oh, why, oh why?
Wish we didn't have to meet secretly
Wish we didn't have to kiss secretly
Wish we didn't have to be afraid
To show the world that we're in love

'Til we have the right to meet openly
'Til we have the right to kiss openly
We'll just have to be content to be in love secretly

Why, oh, why, oh, why, oh, why, oh why?
Wish we didn't have to meet secretly
Wish we didn't have to kiss secretly
Wish we didn't have to be afraid
To show the world that we're in love

'Til we have the right to meet openly
'Til we have the right to kiss openly
We'll just have to be content to be in love secretly

As a heterosexual man, this song reminds me of the huge crush I had on my 26-yo arts teacher when I was 14. Forbidden love! Secretly lived.

Many believe that Jimmy was actually closeted & wrote this song for that reason. 🙂

My favorite Jimmy Rodgers tune. I did this one at open mic, WWU. It's so romantic and soulful.

Robert Miller

Not a bad choice. I like the Wizard. Just snap your fingers....

So beautiful...always loved it. RIP Jimmie Rodgers

Jorge Mario Rodas

Although this song was released in 1958 I used to hear it in the early sixties and liked it. Good song I really still enjoy hearing.
