Whispering Grass (Don't Tell The Trees) 1975

"Whispering Grass (Don't Tell The Trees)" is a popular song written by Fred Fisher and his daughter Doris Fisher. The song was first recorded by Erskine Hawkins & His Orchestra in 1940. The Ink Spots also recorded it the same year.

"Whispering Grass" was a 1975 UK number-one single by Windsor Davies and Don Estelle. Davies and Estelle were actors in the successful sitcom, It Ain't half hot Mum. It was number one in the British singles chart for three weeks from 7 June 1975. The record is a comic version of The Ink Spots' 1940 recording, and was sung in character.

The song has also been recorded by Ringo Starr for his 1970 album Sentimental Journey and Sandy Denny for her 1973 album Like an Old Fashioned Waltz.
