Secrets To Tell

Copyright 2017 Candido Bretto

Tick tock turn back the clock
in Plymouth for a spell
Tick tock I’m Plymouth Rock
and I have secrets to tell

Long, long, long before
the day that you were born
I would look out at the bay
but sad was I each morn

Lonely, lonely was I
for I needed a friend
Someone who would play with me
and make me smile again

Tick tock turn back the clock
in Plymouth for a spell
Tick tock I’m Plymouth Rock
and I have secrets to tell

One day after a storm
on the beach, I saw
Clams, quahogs, and Wampanoag
some friends for me I thought

Hey there you over there
excuse me please I said
But slowly they went away
when the tide came in

Tick tock turn back the clock
in Plymouth for a spell
Tick tock I’m Plymouth Rock
and I have secrets to tell

Tick tock turn back the clock
in Plymouth for a spell
Tick tock I’m Plymouth Rock
and I have secrets to tell

Children do listen well
for I have secrets to tell
