​The Wichita Train Whistle Sings

This song is by School for the Dead and appears on the album The New You (2004).

How in the world can a boy meet a girl
That's as good a girl as his best friend's girl
And how in this life can a man take a wife
That's as good a wife as his best friend's wife

You consider all my questions
And you offer some suggestions
Well maybe my best chance is just to wait and see

There's a girl I tried to look-up
And she said we cannot hook-up
With all the energy it took up
Can't someone please tell me

How in the world can a boy meet a girl
That's as good a girl as his best friend's girl
And how in this life can a man take a wife
That's as good a wife as his best friend's wife

So I had a little respite
And I became quite desperate
Listening to Mike Nesmith
The Wichita Train Whistle Sings

Everybody's walking somewhere
And everybody's stalking someone
And everybody's talking
But no one says a thing
About

How in the world a boy can meet a girl
That's as good a girl as his best friend's girl
And how in this life can a man take a wife
That's as good a wife as his best friend's wife
We don't know
We don't know
We don't know

How in the world a boy can meet a girl
That's as good a girl as his best friend's girl
And how in this life can a man take a wife
That's as good a wife as his best friend's wife

Everybody's talking
But no one says a thing
The Wichita Train Whistle Sings
