She’s sad you see, it won’t go away.
Her teacher has noticed
And her family has too
What is making Calliope Cat so blue?
What’s wrong?, asked her mother
What’s wrong?, asked her dad
What is making Calliope Cat so sad?
She’s not hungry, or tired, or thirsty or mad
She’s just terribly, terribly, terribly sad.
Maybe the doctor can tell us the facts
And we can get our happy Calliope back
Maybe the doctor has a question or more
To tell us why her heart is so sore.
