I Whistle and Wait for Katie

I Whistle and Wait for Katie.

After business you will find me,
Every night as sure as fate;
At the corner of the street here,
Waiting for my bonnie Kate.
Her papa has quite forbidden
Young men to the house to go,
In consequence of which I whistle,
Just to let my true love know.

You may think it awkward standing,
In a busy street like this;
But I’m sure you would not mind it,
Could you meet so sweet a Miss,
Of course I wait till all is still,
See there’s no one passing by,
Before I venture on the whistle,
Known alone to “Katie and I.”

How her father means to take it,
When he hear the news, forsooth,
I wonder what he’ll say to Katie,
When he learns it is the truth.
I’ve at least this consolation,
That my heart is just and right,
Therefore I shall fondly whistle,
For my Katie every night.
