  • I've told every little star
    Just how sweet I think you are
    Why haven't I told you
    I've told ripples in a brook
    Made my heart an open book
    Why haven't I told you
    Friends ask me "am I in love"
    I always answer "yes"
    Might as well confess
    If I don't they guess
    Maybe you may know it too
    Oh my darling if you do
    Why haven't you told me
