secret code lyrics – allan sherman

parody of “secret love” by doris day, from the movie “calamity jane”)
once i had a secret code,
where a was b, and b was g.
g was k, and k was j;
and j was m, and m was p.
v was x, and x was v,
and u was i, and i was u.
87 stood for z,
and 2 for t, and t for 2.
o was 12, and q was 17;
i still don’t know what those numbers mean.
that is how we won the war;
my secret code’s no secret anymore.
h was 9, and s was 33;
oh, how that confused the enemy!
then a recent survey showed
that i don’t understand my secret code.
