Trouble with do...while loop

It says: Bummer: The prompt() method should go INSIDE the do...while loop. I already tried putting it in the loop and it said: Bummer: Put the prompt() method outside the loop or you'll recreate the variable.

script.js
 var secret = prompt("What is the secret password?"); 
do { 

    if (parseInt(secret) === "sesame") {
      document.write("You know the secret password. Welcome.");
}

   } while ( secret !== "sesame" )

I think you're mixing up the messages. The second one would have been: "Bummer: You should declare the secret variable before the loop. Otherwise, you re-create that variable each time through the loop."

So the "prompt" method does go inside the loop, but the declaration of "secret" (not the assignment) is what should be outside.
