LEONARD COHEN lyrics - Got A Little Secret

LEONARD COHEN
"Got A Little Secret"

I've got a little secret
You've got to promise not to tell
I said I've got a little secret
If you promise not to tell
I made a date in Heaven, oh Lord
But I've been keepin' it in Hell

I'd like to love you baby
But it don't seem right
I'd like to love you baby
It just don't seem right
You see, I've got this full length mirror
And it ain't a pretty sight

I've got a little secret
You've got to promise not to tell
I've got a little secret
If you promise not to tell
I made a date in Heaven
But I've been keepin' it in Hell

[Electric guitar]

I'd like to hold you baby
But my arms are old and weak
I would, I'd like to hold you baby
But my arms are old and weak
I was listenin' to your story
But I guess I fell asleep

I've got a little secret
If you promise not to tell
I said, I've got a little secret
You've got to promise not to tell
You see, I made a date in Heaven
But I've been keepin' it in Hell

[Organ]

It's kinda chilly in your kitchen
It must be ten below
It's kinda chilly in your kitchen
Must be ten below
I bought a ticket for the tropics
I must have lost it in the snow

I've got a little secret
If you promise not to tell
I've got a little secret
If you promise not to tell

You see, I made a date in Heaven
But I've been keepin' it in Hell
