Maybe she’s just in a very bad mood.
Maybe she has the cold or the flu,
Maybe she just has nothing to do.
Calliope Cat sits and sits and won’t play.
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
