I Whistle and Wait for Katie.
written and Composed by Michael Nolan. Arranged by John S. Baker.

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.

I am waiting here to greet blue-eyed Kate with kisses sweet;
Every night at the end of the street I whistle and wait for Katie.

You may think it awkward standing in a business 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 "Kate and I." -Chorus.

How her father means to take it, When he hears 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.-Chorus
