ID a song, clip inside

Help me identify an old song. I've recorded a small clip of the melody.

Here's the clip.

It sounded at the very beginning, like somebody whistling it, and then a male voice begun singing. Pop rock. Must be from the 80s or early 90s. Reminds me of a certain period of my childhood, I want to hear it back. I guess this should be easy for the hive mind. Thank you!

Wind of Change?

Sorry, it's not Wind of Change.

I can remember most of the song, but I fail to remember any of the lyrics. My musical abilities aren't enough to reproduce the whole song, but the clip I made is very close as how it begins.

Is there any other way I can identify the song?

FOUND IT! I recalled it said something like "lay your money down" and went thru an extensive Google search.

It's Gino Vannelli's "Persona Non Grata". Seems it wasn't that popular after all, heh.

Thanks everybody again!
