someone's lips are sealed

(one's) lips are sealed

One will not tell anyone; one will keep this a secret. Most often used in the expression "my lips are sealed." A: "Please don't tell anyone about this, I'm so embarrassed." B: "My lips are sealed." I told him not to say anything, and he said his lips are sealed, so hopefully he'll be able to keep a secret this time.
