I CAN KEEP A SECRET – words & music by Nate Butler

It was by accident, I interrupted a chat that was intimate.
I took it over fast, but that's not me that's talkin', that's the Caffe Mocha in my glass.
Everybody heard the same thing, but I can't prove it's true.
Nobody knows what to do, and I'm for telling you,
But I can keep a secret, too.

Back at the new Caffe, I wonder if they sit there dressed in black all day?
I promised not to tell, but now I'm not so sure, now that I'm out from out of coffee's spell.
Anyone can see what is happening to me -- but nobody knows what to do,
'Cause I'm for telling you, but I can keep a secret, too.

So that's the way it went; I didn't mean you to find it out by accident.
Now that I'm on your side, gotta admit, don't trust those coffee-drinkers and their foolish pride!
I can finally see that secrecy is for you and me;
Now I can you the truth: Nobody knows what I do.
Everything I say to you is just between we two …
I can keep a secret, too
I can keep a secret, too
Can you keep a secret, too?
