ESL/EFL Test #298 "English Slang Idioms (20)", answer 3

She asked her friend not to tell anyone about the bargain she found in the paper because loose lips sink ships.

Correct answer: (d) lips
_________________________

'loose lips sink ships ' does it mean that who blurts out everything he can say the secret to the enemy? or if he spills the beens he can spit out secrets.
