About Whistle for the Choir

Whistle for the Choir is a song by the Fratellis, and their third single. It was released on 27 November 2006 and reached number nine on the UK Singles Chart, marking their second UK top-ten single. In the band's native Scotland, the song reached number two, becoming their second song to reach that position after "Chelsea Dagger". The song was originally titled "Knickers in a Handbag" but was changed due to pressure from the label. The artwork points toward the old name by showing a girl on the cover handling a pair of knickers above a handbag.

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 morning, and I'm walking along
Beside the ghost of every drinker here who has ever done wrong
And it's you, woo hoo, that's got me going crazy for the things you do

So if you're crazy I don't care you amaze me
But you're a stupid girl (la, la, la), 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 crying shame, if you would think the same
A boy like me's just irresistible

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
