Quiet or quietly?

There is a verse from a children’s song:

Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday –
Seven days are in a week, I like to sing them quiet.

Why is the adjective “quiet” used instead of the adverb “quietly” here?


5. Out of public scrutiny; known or discussed by few:

wanted to keep the incident quiet until after the election

I think this meaning corresponds to your example.

I like to sing them quiet (let it be our secret)
