Whistle for the Choir - The Fratellis


Well, it's a big, big city,
and it's always the same,
can never be too pretty,
tell me your name,
is it out of line,
if I was to be bold to say,
"Would you be mine"?

Because I may be a beggar,
and you may be the queen,
I know I may be on a downer,
I'm still ready to dream,
though it's three o'clock,
the time is just the time,
it takes for you to talk.

So if you're lonely,
why'd you say you're not lonely?
Oh, you're a silly girl,
I know I heard it so,
it's just like you to come and go.

And know me,
no, you don't even know me.
You're so sweet to try,
oh my, you caught my eye,
a girl like you's just irresistible.

Well, it's a big, big city,
and the lights are all out,
but it's as much as I can do,
you know, to figure you out,
and I must confess,
my heart's in broken pieces,
and my head's a mess.

And it's four in the mornin',
and I'm walkin' along,
beside the ghost of every drinker,
here who's ever done wrong,
and it's you, woo-hoo,
that's got me goin' crazy,
for the things you do.

So if you're crazy,
I don't care you amaze me,
but you're a stupid girl,
oh me, oh my, you talk,
I die, you smile, you laugh, I cry.

And only,
a girl like you could be lonely,
and it's a cryin' shame,
if you would think the same,
a boy like me's just irresistible.
