A semi-autobiographical suburban tragedy

Okay, it's not all true. But my across the street neighbors sure don't seem as friendly as they used to be. I was washing dishes, looking out on the street in front of our house, and the window was open. When I let loose with 'the whistle' (I don't recall the song I was whistling to in my head) the husband turned toward my house and I quickly looked down to at the pot I was scrubbing, and thought "uh-oh."
You live next door with your husband and your cat
We used to smile and wave but there'll be no more of that
I was singin' as you parked your car
When you got out I was whistlin' a bar (oh no!)

And now I'm feelin' like a heel
Don't know what I'm gonna do
Girl I didn't mean to accidentally whistle at you
I was simply rockin' out to a jammin' tune
Girl I didn't mean to accidentally whistle at you

You're nothing special so sorry to say
I'm married too and my wife blows you away
You may not buy it but I wanna make it clear
I would have whistled even if you weren't there


I'm not the kind of guy who makes a pass
Holding hedge trimmers and standing barefoot in the grass
If I'd have done the thing you think I did
I would have whistled at that lady who jogs instead


When your parents come to see you they glare at me too
Your husband just ignores me at the store
I'm the neighborhood perv because I puckered and blew
Now I wish that things would go back like they were before

I love this song. And yes, this has happened to me before! Great tune, great arrangement, and smile-inducing story!
