    whistle a song?

    Hi,

    When I hear a familiar song, sometimes I would whistle. Can I say "I can whistle that song"?

    Thanks.

    I agree, but you will surely hear people say "Oh, what song is that?" when they hear you whistling.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
