Lyrics

When you whistle

i come running

you're the only girl I'm loving.

now you hold my heart

protected

shielded from those

who would wreck it. 

 

women have been

hard on me

they gave up and

set me free

but i'm no good

all by myself

i proved that twice

and that's how i fell

into a big mess

up to my neck

i could not get straight

or make sense

of all the hurt

that i had reaped

why did you not

grab hold of me?

 

i heard her whistle

in the distance

one night

she was walking barefoot on a gravel road

it was one of those August nights

that had a chilly bite

i wrapped her in my sweatshirt

and walked her home. 

 

if you think that

i'd forgot you've 

always

been before my eyes

have seen what

you can do

and how you act

and that is why

i know

i loved you when you're young

or when you are old

or when you're far away

from home

and i miss you

i read your letters

i smell you on the envelope.

 

i heard her whistle

in the distance

one night

she was walking barefoot on a gravel road

it was one of those August nights

that had a chilly bite

i wrapped her in my sweatshirt

and walked her home. 

 

 

when you whisper

my ear gets all warm

i shiver

hear you gently moan

when i touch you

right there

you sit straight up

tie up your long hair.

you bite your lip

a silent scream

in ecstasy

you grab the sheets

and pull me down

down, down inside you

feel the wet

upon my cheek

 

when you whistle

i come running

you're the only girl I'm loving.

now you hold my heart

protected

shielded from those

who would wreck it.
