Fiery flock of hair
Flying high, lose Απϑ fair in the air
Face so radiant blankly stare
As a tiny beep beeps everlasting in my ear.

Another sleepless night it seems
My fate to watch this apparition on interminable reams
To stand Watch Απϑ watch this film
One no one else cares to beam

Just about when the ordeal seems over
Out she saunters from where she took cover
Fiery flock of hair
Flying high, lose Απϑ fair in the air

She torments my night-time treasured hope
Of catching some precious snooze-time alone
Fiery flock of hair lit by a strobe
Come to thë sweet sweet Calliope
