She was just seventeen
A fool I know this was the first time
Lying down by the sea
She said to me: "You'll be the first one."

Who's been this close to me
Then she whispered in my ear
Don't tell, don't tell, don't tell.
Don't tell, don't tell, don't tell.

Don't tell my mama 'cause she'll be upset
Don't tell my mama 'cause she'll be afraid
How could she ever understand
The way we live, the way we are.

Don't tell my mama 'cause she'll be upset
Don't tell my mama 'cause she'll be afraid
Don't tell my mama 'cause she doesn't know
The way we feel, the way we love.

Don't tell my mama.
Don't tell my mama.
Don't tell my mama.
Don't tell my mama.

She was just seventeen
A fool I know this was the first time
Lying down by the sea
She said to me: "You'll be the first one."

Who's been this close to me
Then she whispered in my ear
Don't tell, don't tell, don't tell.
Don't tell, don't tell, don't tell.

Don't tell my mama 'cause she'll be upset
Don't tell my mama 'cause she'll be afraid
How could she ever understand
The way we live, the way we are.

Don't tell my mama 'cause she'll be upset
Don't tell my mama 'cause she'll be afraid
Don't tell my mama 'cause she doesn't know
The way we feel, the way we love.

Don't tell my mama.
Don't tell my mama.

Don't tell my mama 'cause she'll be upset
[Don't tell my mama.]
Don't tell my mama 'cause she'll be afraid
[Don't tell my mama.]

Don't tell my mama 'cause she'll be upset
[Don't tell my mama.]
Don't tell my mama 'cause she'll be afraid
[Don't tell my mama.]

Don't tell my mama 'cause she'll be upset
[Don't tell my mama.]
Don't tell my mama 'cause she'll be afraid
[Don't tell my mama.]

Don't tell my mama 'cause she'll be upset
[Don't tell my mama.]
Don't tell my mama 'cause she'll be afraid
[Don't tell my mama.]

Don't tell my mama 'cause she'll be upset
[Don't tell my mama.]
Don't tell my mama 'cause she'll be afraid...
