Whispering Grass (Don't Tell The Trees)

This song is by Ringo Starr and appears on the album Sentimental Journey (1970).

Why do you whisper, green grass?
Why tell the trees what ain't so?
Whispering grass, the trees don't have to know,
No, no.

Why tell them all your secrets?
Who kissed there long ago?
Whispering grass, the trees don't need to know.

Don't you tell it to the breeze
'Cause they will tell the birds and bees
And ev'ryone will know
Because you told the blabbering trees.
Yes, you told them once before,
It's no secret any more.

Why tell them all the old things?
They're buried under the snow.
Whispering grass, don't tell the trees
'Cause the trees don't need to know.

Why tell them all the old things?
They're buried under the snow.
Whispering grass, don't tell the trees
'Cause the trees don't need to know.
