and from Inside Edition:

Here is something you’ve never heard about before at a presidential cabinet meeting—President Obama was whistling during his first cabinet meeting of the year. It seemed to really catch people off guard.

The Secretary of Transportation could be seen looking around as if wondering, 'Who’s whistling?' Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius and Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel were also in the room.

Body language expert Tonya Reiman says the presidential whistling could signal several things.

She told INSIDE EDITION, "Typically, people will whistle because they are happy. Or, when they are feeling stress. When you feel stress the whistling helps to calm you down."

So, what was the tune? Some people think it's John Mellencamp's "Little Pink Houses."

As the press was ushered out of the cabinet room, the president caught himself whistling and said, "I guess I shouldn't be doing that."

Awww how cute. The boy king whistles. He must not be as smart as Nero, who could at least fiddle while Rome burned.

Back in the ‘Old Navy’ we had a saying:

“Only people that whistle aboard ship are Boatswains Mates and CS’ers”.

Guess if you even were to think that today you would get thrown out....

Kind of like a kid drawing the picture of a gun in grade school.

He was whistling the risque version of “Whistle While You Work”.

If you don’t know that version, it has references to Mussolini, Hitler, Weenie and Work. Doubt if it is copyrighted so it probably won’t show up on Google.

It is just a collection of randon noise emitions, no tune.
The kind of sound created by a failed bearing on a coolant pump, certainly not a tune.

Methinks he tries tooooo hard. The boy in the White House is trying to reassure himself and us that “all’s well” and that he's on top of it and in total control. A true bullsh*tter, whether he purses his lips or opens his mouth.
