    doesn't have that certain something that a girl expects to hear.

                            C                                               Am

    He never whistles at me, it's damaging my status,

                                         Dm                                             G

    I don't think he can whistle at me, he lacks the apparatus.

                                        C                                              Am

    Why d'you never whistle at me ? Beginning to suspect you.

                                          Dm                                           G

    I need someone to whistle at me, I'm gonna disconnect you !
