I am throwing stones in the brook
as slowly as a turtle walks.
The babbling brook speaks to me.
I tell the brook my secrets.

As slowly as the turtle walks,
the brook tells me its secrets.
I tell the brook my secrets.
We describe our troubles.

The brook tells me its secrets.
When it’s deep, I swim there.
We describe our troubles.
I never tell anyone about my friend.

When it’s deep, I swim there.
I am throwing stones in the brook.
I never tell anyone about my friend,
The babbling brook who speaks to me.
